What is Turkey's main export?
Turkey’s main export is textile and clothing. It has a share of 21% of the total export. Being the most outward-looking industry in the country, it can compete in international markets and it has one of the biggest shares of world exports. Turkey has been the 5th textile exporter in the world in 2018 with an 11.9 billion dollar export value.
Taking such a high place in the world ranking is also related to the success and expertise in production. As the textile and clothing industry in Turkey transforms into a world giant, the need for supplies increases. Today the textile and clothing industry in the country is capable of producing a diverse range of high-quality supplies in large quantities. Turkey has been the 7th textile-producing country in the world in 2019 with 1.9% of the global textile production share. The majority of the supplies are manufactured in Istanbul, Bursa, and Denizli.
Industrialization in Turkey dates back to the sixties. The long-established industry can answer the needs of the consumers. The global increase in environmental and health-related concerns is traceable in the textile and clothing industry as well. Consumers tend to buy products that do not harm human health and the environment in general. Turkish textile and clothing industry is adapting itself to this transformation and becoming much more conscious in terms of its supplies and production techniques. Making environment-friendly production and thus obtaining eco-labels in return consolidates its place in the global industry and enhances its reliability.
Given its share in the total export of the country and its capacity to improve and reform itself about the global transformations, the Turkish textile, and clothing industry continues to be one of the leading textile producers and exporters in the world.
