Machinery sector in Turkey The Turkish machinery sector continues on course – identifying potentials and taking chances
Turkey - Through 2016, the Turkish machinery export organisation has already successfully represented its 8000+ members from the entire field of the machinery sector at various trade fairs.
Thus, it seized the opportunity to inform the public about the chances and potentials of German-Turkish collaboration in machine engineering to expand industry relations and to intensify the existing ties and co-operations.
By the end of the year, Turkish Machinery would have presented two important and successful sectors of the machinery industry at two trade fairs in Germany.
To begin with, Turkish Machinery represented its members at K 2016, the leading trade fair for Plastics and Rubber industry in Düsseldorf. Apart from this, more than 100 distinguished Turkish enterprises presented their latest products and technologies. The PAGDER Trade Association, Turkish Plastics Industrialists Association, also provided information on Turkey's plastics sector and its member companies with a separate booth in hall 11 / D 25-04.
Immediately thereafter, Turkish Machinery will represent the major sector of sheet metal working at Euroblech in Hannover. Furthermore, more than 90 Turkish companies will present the quality and performance level of the industry.
Development of the Turkish machinery sector
With a trading turnover of 2,910 billion USD, the machinery industry has an exceptionally important role to play worldwide. Even in Turkey, the sector is making a substantial contribution to the development of the country.
The machinery industry in Turkey is recording high growth rates for many years. Machine engineering is thus one of the most important industries in the Turkish economy. Despite the global and national developments, machine engineering has shown steady and strong growth in the last decade. Highly competitive and flexible, small and medium-sized enterprises, which form the backbone of the country’s industrial production are the driving force behind this growth.
In the last ten years, the Turkish machinery industry has increased its exports by two and a half times and thus proven its global competitiveness. This process began with the modernisation of the companies and continued with increased quality awareness and lean production processes. Nevertheless, Turkey is aware that right now, in a highly modern and technological industry, the requirements are much higher and more demanding than ever.
