In return for Iran significantly reducing its nuclear activities, the UN would suspend certain sanctions on gold and precious metals, Iran’s auto sector and Iran’s petrochemical exports. Overall, the deal could deliver around $7 billion in relief to Iran, according to US estimates, which would boost a number of industries. The focus of this paper is to look at the impact it may have on Iran’s polyethylene industry, which has suffered following the recent embargoes.
