Iran is planning to increase domestic metal output, which is expected to be net exporter of aluminum since 2019. A Iran mining and mining industry development and innovation organization officials at the Arabal meeting held in Oman said. But in the short term, Iran will remain the net importer of metals, the existing aluminum production capacity of 457 thousand tons / year, running capacity of 437 thousand tons / year, aluminum production in about 340 thousand tons / year in Iran.

At present, the domestic alumina production in Iran is in a state of shortage, and is holding talks with Chinese enterprises to build a new alumina smelter with a capacity of 2 million tons per year in Asaluyeh. The bauxite needed by the smelter will be imported from Iran's suppliers, Alumina Company of Guinea in Conakry. Iran has reached an agreement with the company that by 2040, Iran will be able to mine 4 million tons of bauxite from Guinea every year.

In the long run, Iran will be in the past five years, domestic aluminum production and demand balance, and eventually become a net exporter of aluminum.

At present, Iran is planning to increase domestic aluminum production to 1 million 500 thousand tons in the next 15 years.
