Turkey's Wholesale Exports Entered A New Structural Transformation Process!

Turkey has become important to both qualitative and quantitative terms for Global wholesale markets.

Turkish wholesale market

In line with the policies implemented as part of the export-led development model followed since 1980, importing from Turkey has become important to both qualitative and quantitative terms for Global wholesale markets.

 Starting in particular in 1980 and continuing up to the mid-1990s, significant developments had been observed in the market share held by labor-intensive industrial products such as textiles and clothing, iron and steel, and foodstuffs.


 Import from Turkey

In 1996, following the establishment of a Customs Union with the European Union, Turkey's exports entered a new structural transformation process. Developments in recent years show that production and exports have increased substantially in high-technology sectors, where goods include electrical and electronic machinery and equipment, as well as in the automotive industry. In this respect, it can also be observed that the export market share of manufactured industrial products has increased.
