The international sanctions of the past years delayed the modernization process necessary for the Iranian industry to continue to be competitive within a global context, the association reports.
In 2004, Iran was ranked among the top ten markets for Italian exports in the sector. After years of stagnation, Italian sales to Iran registered a recovery. In 2016 first quarter the Italian sales to Iranian market totalled a value of EUR 2 million, while 2015 sales were worth EUR 8 million. Iranian demand is spread out over all types of production, but Italian finishing and spinning machines are the primary exports.
ACIMIT represents an industrial sector comprising around 300 manufacturers and producing machinery for an overall value of about EUR 2.6 billion, with exports amounting to 86% of total sales.

“The Italian textile machinery Roadshow, held in Iran last 22 to 30 May, confirmed the clear concordance between Iran’s textile manufacturers and Italy’s textile machinery manufacturers was concluded with excellent results,” explained Raffaella Carabelli, President of ACIMIT.
The 27 Italian companies participating in the Roadshow took part in a series of technological workshops held in Tehran, Yazd, Isfahan and Mashad, in meetings with textile authorities and visits to local companies.
