INDUSTRY DIVERSIFICATION

The image of Iran’s economy as oil, carpets, and pistachios was always flawed, but has now become badly dated. The Islamic Republic is in the midst of a non-oil export boom — it has the potential to remain a middle-income country even with no oil exports, and the reserves to finance the transition in the meantime. Iran has the largest and most diversified industries in the Middle East and North Africa Region with over 40 industries. In 2012, the Iran exported $34 billion in non-oil products, meaning that non-oil exports covered 60% of the import bill, compared to 24% in 2002. It produced this shift in part by converting more of its oil into industrial products for export.
