Khodrocar – a look at the price of imported parts shows that part’s price increased by the rise of exchange rate and ban of part importation. Meanwhile, the spare part market is in stagnation and lack of purchase power is increasing this stagnation.
"The ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade should support importers. Iranian producers are able to produce many parts so if the ministry approve the certificate of importing machines then producers could be able to produce many parts without restrictions.” Seyed Mehdi Kazemi, secretary of spare parts union told khodrocar reporter.
"Right now, stores should sell parts with any prices because of their debts. So as the stagnation has captured the market but stores won’t increase the price but after the petrol price increased spare parts increased.” He added.
He emphasized that the current cost of the components should be attributed to the market downturn, adding: "If the market were to be dealt with, the market would not have seen such a situation, but now the traders are worried about the shortage in the next few months. If this trend continues, it will lead to expensive and deficient parts, which will result in consumer dissatisfaction.
"Of course, this is not the case for all parts, but it is for parts that do not have a lot of traffic and imports are limited, but undoubtedly, as car prices rise, the price of parts always goes up. We will see price stability when there are no currency fluctuations, otherwise there is no other option than to raise the price of the parts as sellers also have to buy high-priced parts." he added.
"Parts imported to Iran have been limited in price because of the limited number of cars produced domestically, so it is difficult to import them. Deficiency is also a deficiency that leads to expensive." he mentioned.
Emphasis is on opening import paths to restore equilibrium prices while activists emphasize the need for facilities as well as supply of currency needs and believe that if the import path is opened, the price of these parts will decrease in the market.
