In the present research, the situation of cement industry of Iran and main countries of the world in this industry containing China, India, the United States of America and Turkey in various fields including production, consumption and universal trade for a period of 15 years (1379-1393 in Persian calendar and 2000-2014) has statistically been analyzed. The main target markets of Iran's cement exports have been identified, as well as the measure and currency value of cement exports to them have been studied in the various years. The relative quota of Iran and the various continents from the total world production and export value of global currencies have also been surveyed. The results of this research reveal that Iran by producing 66.5 Mt of cement in 1393 in Persian calendar has achieved the first place of cement producers in the Middle East, the world's fourth largest producer of cement and the first place of the world exporters of cement. At the moment the cement of Iran is exported to 30 countries, whereas over the past 15 years Iraq with relative quota of 53.6 percent from the whole cement exports of Iran is the main target market of Iran. For the six past years (2009-2014) Iran has attained 12.2 and 72.1 percent of Asia and the world's cement production respectively as well as 53.2 and 19.1 percent of currency value of cement exports from Asia and the world respectively. During the last several years (1388-1393 in Persian calendar) both the amount and exports currency of cement products of Iran have also increased slightly which deal with the potential of the country to produce such products, therefore to achieve more benefits this capability needs more attention. At the end the current exports problems of Iran's cement have also been reviewed and to overcome them some overall strategies were offered.
