Turkey’s footwear industry has developed at a rapid pace
According to the report published by Ministry of Trade of Republic of Turkey, Turkey’s footwear industry has developed at a rapid pace due to modern manufacturing processes, the availability of major quality raw materials, skilled workers and high design capacity. Today the Turkish footwear industry has a strong position among exporters of high-quality fashion goods. Another sign of positive development is the increase in foreign investments in the sector.
The shoe industry, which began to appear as a small-size industry in 1950, is a well-developed industry now. Especially in the 1980s, significant investments in machinery parks were made and now, over 15% of the sector has completed its industrialization process.
About 70% of the production in the sector is carried out by semi-mechanized production processes and almost 15% of production is hand-made. Today the Turkish footwear sector has the capacity of creating its own brands and fashion. The performance of the sector largely depends on exports. The Turkish shoe sector had an export value of $887,4 millions in the year 2018.
