Iranian vehicle production rose by 46.7% year-on-year (y-o-y) during 2014, to 1,090,846 units, according to statistics from the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA). Given this strong performance, BMI believes there may be some upside risk to its own forecast of 1,078,492 units produced over the Iranian calendar year period (March 2014 -March 2015).

During this time, Iran will continue to receive around USD700mn a month from its frozen accounts, although key international sanctions on its energy and banking sector will remain in place.

Overall, we believe that a solution to the nuclear issue will not be found by June 30, as political constraints will prevent both Iranian and US negotiators from making the significant concessions necessary to bridge existing technical obstacles to a deal. That said, a complete breakdown in talks is also unlikely in June, as the costs would be immense. Our core view therefore remains that talks will continue over the next two years through a series of partial deals and extensions. Following June 2015, we believe that a form of face-saving, partial agreement will be reached, which will allow for further talks.

It is clear that there remains strong demand for new vehicles from the Iranian population at present. As such, the potential for improved foreign relations between Iran and the West over...
