Turkey is an attractive

Turkey is an attractive location for the intralogistics industry Turkey has seen strong economic growth in recent years. Stable economic growth along with annual growth rates of five percent and a gross national product that has more than tripled from USD 231 billion to USD 820 billion in the period from 2002 to 2013, have made this country the fastest growing economy within the OECD group of countries. Current reports from TİM, the Turkish Exporters’ Assembly, indicate that export has increased by a further four percent to USD 157.6 billion in 2014. At USD 22.3 billion, car sales made up the largest part of this value, followed by textiles and chemical products. Thanks to its geographical location, Turkey has become a stepping stone to other countries in the Middle East, the Balkans, North Africa, CIS states, and Central Asia. Half of its approximately 77 million inhabitants are younger than 30.4 years of age and are well educated. More than 28 million people are employed, thus ensuring that the Turkey plans to become one of the top ten leading industrial nations by 2023 strength of the Turkish workforce is also integrated in the logistics industry. This young generation is also very consumer-focused, thanks to modern information technology and a well-equipped media culture. Online trade is also booming in Turkey and cheap personal loans are increasing spending power. This provides e-commerce companies with great opportunities as the demand for logistic centers in the online retail sector is continuously increasing. The current size of the Turkish logistic sector is estimated at around USD 80 to 100 billion and is expected to increase to USD 106 to 140 billion by 2017. The latter is reason enough for international companies from the intralogistics industry to invest in Turkey as a trade partner or to establish their own production, as detailed in our article on pages 10 and 40. This is why WIN-Materials Handling Eurasia, that will be held in Istanbul for the third time from March 19 to 22, 2015 can look forward to a lot of visitor interest and will provide the necessary basis to gain information about devices, plants, and systems in the intralogistic sector. If Turkey maintains this level of growth, it will not only become the largest and richest single market within the Middle East but will also be the most interesting and dynamic by far. This is something that the intralogistics industry should take advantage of.
