Western Asia, also known as West Asia or Southwest Asia, is the westernmost region of Asia, encompassing Anatolia, the Arabian Peninsula, Iran, Mesopotamia, the Armenian Highlands, the Levant, the island of Cyprus, the Sinai Peninsula, and parts of the Caucasus Region (Transcaucasia). It is defined by various academics, UN bodies, and institutions. The region is separated from Africa by the Isthmus of Suez in Egypt and from Europe by the waterways of the Turkish Straits and the watershed of the Greater Caucasus. It is bordered by Central Asia to the northeast and South Asia to the east. Twelve seas surround the region, including the Aegean Sea, the Sea of Marmara, the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea, the Persian Gulf, and the Mediterranean Sea.

Covering an area of 5,994,935 square kilometers (2,314,657 sq mi), Western Asia has a population of approximately 313 million. Of the 20 UN member countries in the region, 13 are part of the Arab world. The most populous countries in Western Asia include Iran, Turkey, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen.

The term “West Asia” is used pragmatically and lacks a universally agreed-upon definition. Its common definitions often overlap with those of the terms “Middle East,” “Eastern Mediterranean,” and “Near East.”

Sea Freight Shipping to Asia

Western Asia is predominantly arid and semi-arid, with stretches of forests and fertile valleys. The region encompasses grasslands, rangelands, deserts, and mountains. Water scarcity is a significant issue in many parts of Western Asia, exacerbated by rapidly growing populations and increasing demands for water, while pollution and salinization pose threats to water supplies. Major rivers such as the Tigris and Euphrates serve as sources of irrigation water to support agriculture.

Sea Freight Shipping to Asia

The economy of Western Asia is diverse, and the region experiences significant economic growth. Turkey boasts the largest economy in the region, followed by Saudi Arabia and Iran. Petroleum is a major industry in the regional economy, as Western Asia holds more than half of the world’s oil reserves and approximately 40% of the world’s natural gas reserves.
