The military weapons industry is among the most profitable today's industries. These markets are very diverse in terms of geographical scope and range of goods, but all have been rooted in the demand side for security. The Middle East is one of the most important markets in the global industry, with weapons suppliers showing particular attention. The prominent feature of securing power along with securing investment in the form of a need that is being addressed in the military weapons market, with the exception of armaments and military services, has no alternative substitute, which makes the demanded function less demanding and consequently, actors in the supply chain are more likely to be priced on this market. In this research, after studying the defense industry and recognizing the general structure of the global defense market, the Middle East's military weapons market position was identified in the international arms markets, and then after examining the structure of the Middle East market, using the CR indices, Herfindahl And Rosenblut, the market power of suppliers and the barriers to the natural and strategic entry of the market and their desire to create them were examined. Finally, because the Islamic Republic of Iran possesses the strategic infrastructure of defense industries, the possibility of the Islamic Republic of Iran entering and operating in military weapons markets, in order to benefit from commercial and non-commercial interests, is examined.
