Developments in the Turkish Automotive Industry

Wildly outstripped by demand, the relatively weak supply of automotive assemblers to export from Turkey to markets including North Africa and the Middle East presents a huge opportunity for suppliers, both locally and overseas. The Turkish automotive industry could provide a rare chance to win new business while other markets are sluggish and still reeling in the aftermath of recent economic events.


    
Turkey’s Growing Automotive industry & Orhan Holding
Turkey’s shining star “Turkish Automotive Industry” aims to carry on their existences while growing
consistently, expand into new sectors and countries by generating capital for continuous development.

It is such a continuous developing industry that we had been always faced with different kinds, models and brands by development of Technology since the Automobiles were invented. Maybe the aim had been only producing the best automobiles, maybe people had worked for only this reason, but each time better and new ones, new brands, new models had followed one another during this process.

Deloitte - Turkish Automotive Industry Report
Turkey’s automotive sector’s foundations date back to the 1950s when the first production under license from Ford, Renault and Fiat, in a heavily protected domestic market, began. Over recent decades, it has grown substantially, due to two main factors: the large size of the domestic market where individuals were gaining increasing purchasing power as the economy developed; and the enormous expansion of international trade especially following the Customs Union Agreement signed with the EU in 1996. These fundamental factors also drive the long-term growth expectations.

Automotive & Autoparts industries in Turkey Prepared by Ayper EĞDİRİCİ SÖNMEZ
Vehicle industry production in Turkey dates back to the mid 1950s and the industry gained
momentum in the early 1960s. After manufacturing some prototype vehicles during the
1950s, the first vehicle assembly company was established in 1954 (Turk Willys Overland
Ltd.) for jeep manufacturing. By 1955, trucks, and by 1963, buses were being assembled
in Turkey. Then passenger car assembly companies, namely TOFAŞ (FIAT), OYAK
