According to the compilation of data from the Turkish Statistical Institute (TUIK), the share of medium and high-tech products in the manufacturing industry came to the fore in exports, which broke the record in the history of the republic at $255.8 billion last year.

While in 2019 the manufacturing industry exported high-tech products worth 5 billion 999 million dollars, in 2020 this amount increased to 5 billion 478 million dollars, in 2021 to 6 billion 450 million dollars and in 2022 to 7 billion 419 million dollars. Turkey exported high-tech products worth 9 billion 130 million dollars in 2023.

Exports of medium-high technology products amounted to 62 billion 289 million dollars in 2019 and decreased to 57 billion 360 million dollars in 2020. Exports of medium to high technology products, which showed a significant increase in the following year, increased to 71 billion 9 million dollars in 2021. Exports of these products, which amounted to 81 billion 251 million dollars in 2022, increased to 88 billion 91 million dollars last year.

“Ankara excels in producing high-tech products”

Ankara Chamber of Industry (ASO) President Seyit Ardıç said in his assessment that despite the recent increase, Turkey is still below the world average in terms of the share of high-tech products in manufacturing exports. Ardıç said, “More than half of our exports of high-tech products consist of defense and aerospace products, in which we have made great progress in recent years,” said.

Ardıç pointed out that Ankara has an advantageous position in high-technology exports compared to other provinces, saying:

“Ankara is characterized by strong sectors in the production of high-tech products such as machinery, medicine, transportation, electrical and electronics industries, especially the defense industry. Our capital has great potential in high-tech manufacturing and the value added of production has increased rapidly in recent years. However, the use of high technology has traditionally “Expanding our sectors, increasing our product diversity and differentiating our customers in foreign markets will take our exports to the next level.” As ASO, our goal is to achieve this to our capital industrialists as far as possible that they can produce technology and innovation on an international level.”
