 Reimposing of sanctions would restrictIran’s exports of oil. Iran comes in one of the top 10 countries of oil exports(exporting worth of $29.1 billion).

Country exported about 777 million barrelsof crude oil last year, averaging 2.62 million barrels a day. 62% of shipmentswere sent in Asia and 38% of exports was in Europe. Biggest importers of Iran’soil are China, world’s top oil buyer and energy consumer. Therefore if Iran isrestricted to export oil then a huge supply of oil will be cut out resulting inhigher demand and lesser supply. This would impact global trade as prices willrose above 80$ per barrel from 70.15$ (present price).

Countries which would bemajorly effected are India & China as they are developing. Oil is anessential component as every process requires oil and both the countries are ahuge buyer of oil. When price will increase to 80$ per barrel then countrieswill import lower than current position.India imports 13% of Iran’s oil exportswhich is about 11% of India’s oil import. Rise of price would increaseinflation rate which will slow down the market which will lead to unemployment,fall in stock market. Whereas UAE will benefit from re-imposing of sanctionsbecause supply is been cut off and demand is high for oil, hence price would beraised.
