Turkey is the 16th biggest global automotive producer in the world: there are 13 OEMs producing over 1 million units of vehicles yearly.
Here are present with their plants Toyota, Fiat, Renault, Hyunday and Ford.
In Turkey there are several signs of growth for the Automotive Sector: passenger car demand doubled in 5 years time reaching 600K units and it is expected to grow; value cars will continue to dominate market with a share of ~80% ; compared to Europe and the Middle East, Turkey is an important LCV market with over 200k unit sales. The Turkish government explicitly declares intentions to develop automotive industry.
On Hurriyet, journal of The Turkish Automotive Sector, it is written that “Turkey’s automotive industry is showing no signs of slowdown amid the stagnation that is taking hold of the European car industry. New investments, facility upgrades, and model additions are taking place in global car makers’ Turkish facilities, while 58 of Europe’s top 100 car plants are facing serious losses in one of the worst years for the industry in decades”.
