TEHRAN- The home appliance industry is one of the industries that faced significant production growth in the past Iranian calendar year 1401 (ended on March 20), so that it can be said that Iranian manufacturers were able to take a significant share of the market in the production of refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, evaporative coolers, and TV sets, and even in small household appliances, the production status is outstanding.
Speaking in a TV program, Mohsen Shokrollahi, the director-general of the Home Appliances Office of the Ministry of Industry, Mining, and Trade, said: “Despite the problems, 1401 was a busy year in terms of increasing production, and we are witnessing good growth in various items of household appliances.”
The official announced that about 600 home appliance production units are active in the country.
“The home appliance industry is a growing industry and this industry is developing by launching new production lines, for example, last year we launched 27 new production lines, including 10 refrigerator production lines, six microwave and small household appliances production lines, four washing machine production lines, three dishwasher production lines, and one TV production line”, he added.
Over the past few years, the Iranian government has been following a new strategy for supporting domestic production to neutralize the impacts of the U.S. sanctions while reducing the reliance of the economy on oil revenues.
The home appliances sector has been one of the pioneers in this regard and like many other areas, the production of home appliances has witnessed a significant rise in the past six years.
