The position of Turkey on global bus & coach market
Sales of buses and midi buses to the home market rose substantially in 2017, compared with the previous year. Turkey is making progress in renewing city bus fleets, and the intercity express coach market remains strong. The country relies heavily on buses and coaches for public transport.
Turkey is also a major exporter of buses and coaches. Last year, according to OSD, the Turkish manufacturers trade association, there were exports of a record 44,440 buses and coaches of all sizes, valued at USD1.15 billion! That is a very impressive performance and it does not include many components and accessories delivered by the Turkish supply industry to manufacturers and markets outside Turkey.
The Turkish manufacturing industry is now in a very strong position. Turkish companies have built up regular customer bases in so many countries that they are well protected from downturns. While some markets in the Middle East are having serious problems, neighboring Iran is no longer subject to sanctions, and that must surely be a great opportunity for trade between the two countries.
