Iran is the world’s largest producer and exporter of bitumen, accounting for approximately 30% of global production. Bitumen is a by-product of crude oil and is primarily used in the construction industry for road paving and waterproofing. Iran’s strategic location and large reserves of crude oil make it an ideal location for the production and export of bitumen. The country has invested heavily in its bitumen production infrastructure in recent years to improve quality control and increase production capacity to meet demand from its international customers. Iran’s bitumen exports are primarily shipped to neighboring countries in the Middle East and Asia, and the country has also successfully expanded its market share in Africa and Europe. Iran remains a significant player in the global bitumen market and is expected to maintain this position in the coming years.
