|PACKAGING INDUSTRY IN TURKEY
Packaging provides protection to products by ensuring safe delivery from the place of manufacture to the point of sale or use.
The Turkish packaging industry is a well developed sector. In recent years, innovations and the production of environment friendly packaging in the sector have increased. In addition new packaging formats are improved according to the quality, size and appeal of products.
Growth in population and living standards, rapid urbanization, diversification of consumer goods, increase in the number of women The in labor force and increase in exports, mainly in consumer products, have all resulted in higher demand for packaging products. The Turkish packaging industry has grown rapidly over the past 10 years and has now become a huge sector. The growth of the sector reflects changing shopping habits, particularly in large cities, due to the presence of supermarkets, department stores and hypermarkets. Increased advertisement of consumer products, attractive point-of-purchase packaging and the boom in sales of canned and frozen food, apparel, and disposable medical supplies, all of which require specialty packaging and of course exports are other factors for the expanding packaging sector.
Packaging consumption in Turkey has increased rapidly following world trends. As the retail market has expanded rapidly, the sales of packaged products to the final consumer has increased. This development has resulted in intensive studies on packaging forms and more rational packaging. In the last three years, the average growth rate of the Turkish packaging industry has been 10 % per year, and it is estimated to remain the same in the coming years.
The annual consumption of packaging is about 3.5 million tons. The breakdown of packaging products consumption in Turkey is 37% for flexible packaging, paper, carton and corrugated board packaging, 22% for metal packaging, 20% for plastic packaging, 13% for wood packaging and 8% for glass packaging.
Turkey produces all types of packaging materials and packaging products such as paper, cardboard, wrapping film, tape, plastics, glass, metal and wood. The need to arrange the product within the packaging according to its physical and chemical properties has lead to different ways of utilizing the main materials by processing them with new technologies. In other words, the flexibility of the materials has increased with regard to protection capabilities and shelf life.
There are about 5000 companies manufacturing various packaging materials in Turkey. Most of the companies are medium and small sized companies, but there are also a few large companies. Eighteen packaging manufacturers are among the largest 500 companies in Turkey. The companies in the sector have shown very good performance in terms of quality and production capacity. Companies in the packaging industry are concentrated in Istanbul, Izmir, Kocaeli, Gaziantep, Adana, Ankara, Konya and Balikesir. The packaging sector is well-organized under the Exporters' Unions and sector associations.

Turkey has a population of over 67 million and an annual growth rate of about 1.57 percent. The increase in the population and living standards, rapid urbanization, changing consumption patterns and the increase in women in business all result in higher demand for packaging products.
As a result the Turkish packaging industry has grown rapidly over the past 10 years and has now become a huge sector. The growth of the sector reflects changing shopping habits, particularly in the large cities with their supermarkets, department stores and hypermarkets. Increased advertisement of consumer products, attractive point-of-purchase packaging and the boom in sales of canned and frozen food, apparel, and disposable medical supplies, all of which require specialty packaging, are other factors for the expanding packaging sector.

Turkey is an exporting country; the value of its export products reached about 35 million US dollars in 2002. More than half of exports goes to the EU which has high packing norms and standards.
All these developments have resulted in a large packaging sector and a considerable demand for packaging machinery. At present the Turkish packaging machinery sector meets domestic demand and has a remarkable capacity for exports.

Cleaning and drying machinery, can-sealing, container labeling, vacuum or gas packaging machines, machinery for filling, closing, sealing, labeling of bottles, cans, bags, boxes, machinery for opening, filling and closing bags, packing or wrapping machinery-including heatshrink types, weighing and labeling equipment, machines for making bags and sacks and machines for making cartons, boxes, cases or similar containers are the main packaging machinery and equipment in Turkey.
