    Iraqi or early Korean.
    It is not made of steel, but of a synthetic material. Possibly Corlon.

    This type of helmet was widely exported by Korea.

    Emile is correct, originally SKorean product, made of Corlon; several possible makers including Daewoo and Samsung. Very widely exported, examples found in Middle East, Asia, South America.
