Iran: Cement production fell by 4.8% year-on-year to 37.7Mt in the eight-month period to 21 November 2017. The decline has been blamed on a recession in the construction industry, poor natural gas supplies and falling export rates, according to the Trend News Agency. The country produced 54.1Mt of cement in its last financial year. Cement production capacity has risen significantly locally from 29.5Mt/yr in 2001 to 83Mt/yr in 2017. The number of cement plants has grown from 30 to 72.
