R&D Capacity of Turkish Appliance Manufacturers
R&D takes place most intensively in the electrical and electronic products sector in Turkey. The reason for this is that Turkish device manufacturers are export-oriented. Turkish appliance manufacturers who want to increase their profits by creating high-value products can offer quality and flexible products that comply with international standards.
Types of Appliance Products
The production range of Turkish appliance manufacturers is quite wide. Computer production, white goods production, consumer electronics, and telecommunication devices can be listed as examples.
The production of computer, optical, and electronic devices is decreasing, and Turkish appliance manufacturers have focused more on the defense industry and electrical equipment production (source: Ministry of Industry, Electrical and Electronics Sector Report, 2020).
Export Champion in White Goods Production
Turkey ranks 1st in Europe and 3rd in the world with a production capacity of approximately 26 million units of appliances.

The below table, which is in Turkish, shows the top 6 appliances that Turkey exports. These are cables, television, dishwasher machine, fridge, oven, and washing machine, respectively.
Are Turkish Appliance Manufacturers Clustering?
We do not currently see such a cluster, but the regions where Turkish device manufacturers manufacture most intensively are the Marmara, Central Anatolia, and Aegean Regions.
Do Turkish Electrical Appliances Meet International Standards?
Yes. Since Turkish appliance manufacturers export 75% of their production to all parts of the world, especially Europe, portable appliance testing (PAT) has been carried out, and they manufacture within International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards.
If you want to import these devices, you should determine the class of the device in the examples below and request the appropriate PAT test from Turkish appliance manufacturers.
- Class 1 appliances: refrigerators, microwaves, kettles, irons, and toasters
- Class 2 appliances: hair dryers, DVD players, televisions, computers, and photocopiers.
- Class 3 appliances: laptops, mobile phones, and low-energy light bulbs
