Construction

TURKEY CONSTRUCTION AND MINING MACHINERY INDUSTY

 

Construction is one of the key sectors in Turkey, being one of the main drivers of private

and public investments. As a result of economic reforms, Turkey has established a large

and strong construction industry in a short time.

 

Apart from the Middle East and North African market in which Turkish contractors have a

great share of civil engineering and electromechanical erection work, the former USSR

and some European countries have opened their construction market to Turkish

contractors. Today, Turkish contractors work in four continents and over 70 countries,

using all the financial, managerial and technological instruments of international

contracting standards.

 

The development of construction industry has resulted in a large and diversified production

capacity in building materials sector, a dynamic contracting and engineering services and

a young but well-established construction and mining machinery sector.

 

Growth of the construction and mining machinery sector closely depends on the

development of the construction sector. Today, Turkish construction and engineering

companies are able to design, erect, build and operate almost all kinds of civil and

industrial projects such as: dams, hydroelectric and thermal power plants, industrial plants,

airports and seaports, large scale petroleum and natural gas pipelines, fertiliser plants,

petrochemical complexes and refineries, motorways, tunnels, bridges, large housing

projects, hotels and all kinds of sophisticated buildings. Since 1970, Turkish contractors

have completed about 6.500 projects in 93 countries. Total value of the projects

undertaken by Turkish contractors abroad has reached $205 billion.

 

Turkey is among the world’s richest countries in minerals. Excluding petroleum and coal,

there are approximately 4.400 mineral deposits in Turkey while 53 different minerals are

produced. Turkey is a major producer of boron minerals, feldspar, marble, barite, celestite,

emery, limestone, magnesite, perlite, pumice, copper and chromite. Modern production

equipment as well as new technologies and methods has been very important factors in

the development of the mining sector in Turkey. Improvements in the mining sector,

especially in marble production, have accelerated the growth of the mining machinery

sector.

 

 

PRODUCTION

 

Turkish construction and mining machinery industry manufactures and exports various

kinds of construction and mining machinery including; pulley tackles, hoists other than skip

hoists, winches, capstans, jacks, derricks, cranes, straddle carriers, works trucks fitted with

a crane, forklift trucks, other work trucks fitted with lifting and handling equipment, lifting,

handling, loading and unloading machinery, self propelled bulldozers, graders and

excavators, moving, grading, scraping and boring machinery for earth, stone and mineral

elements, spare parts of construction machinery, special purpose motor vehicles for

persons and goods, work trucks and lifting equipment for factories and airports.

 

Turkish construction and mining machinery sector has produced lifting machinery,

especially cranes, since 1970. Bridge and tower cranes, cranes designed for mounting on

road vehicles and cranes used in the iron and steel sector have an important share in the

production of cranes. Small and medium-sized companies dominate the crane industry.

 

 

 

Approximately, 50 companies are operational in the crane sector. Some of these

companies have specialized in the production of certain models by means of mass

production. For instance, the production of a special type of high capacity cranes is

performed successfully by 10 big companies.

 

In Turkey, there are a few big companies producing small-capacity machines called

forklifts, backhoe loaders, hammers and excavators. Backhoe loaders and excavators are

among the fast developing products in the sector. At present, the share of backhoe loaders

in the total sales of construction and mining machinery is about 40% while that of

excavators is about 30%. This tendency for backhoe loaders and excavators is expected

to continue.

 

Turkish construction and mining machinery industry is composed of about 500 companies,

with medium and small-sized companies dominating the industry. About 100 of these are

manufacturing companies 10 of which are large-sized companies. Manufacturing sites are

mainly located in the Marmara, Central Anatolian and Aegean Regions of Turkey. Istanbul,

Konya and Ankara are the major cities in construction and mining machinery and spare

parts production. BMC, Temsa, Hema and Hidromek are among the important companies

that are included in the list of 500 largest companies in Turkey, prepared by Istanbul

Chamber of Industry in 2011. Çukurova İnşaat Makinaları, Parsan Makine Parçaları and

Sanko Makina are other important companies in the industry.

 

EXPORTS

 

One of the most promising subsectors of the Turkish machinery industry in exports is

construction and mining machinery. Turkish construction and mining machinery producers

compete with world-wide well-known producers in domestic as well as foreign markets.

 

Total exports of the sector reached US $1,5 billion in 2011 with an increase of 41%

compared to the previous year. Main exports products are; machinery spare parts,

machinery for sorting, screening, separating, washing, crushing, grinding, mixing or

kneading earth, stone, ores or other mineral substances, lifting, handling, loading and

unloading machinery, special purpose motor vehicles for persons and goods, self

propelled bulldozers, graders and excavators, moving, grading, scraping and boring

machinery for earth, stone and mineral elements, derricks and cranes. Among the product

groups; construction and mining machinery spare parts and machinery for sorting,

 

screening, separating, washing, crushing, grinding, mixing or kneading earth, stone, ores

or other mineral substances are the most traded items. Total share of these groups in the

total exports of construction and mining machinery is about 69,2%. Other important export

products, namely lifting, handling, loading and unloading machinery, account for 7,8% of

the total exports in the sector.

 

Turkish-made construction and mining machinery were exported to over 150 countries in

the world in 2011. Major export markets were Germany, Romania, Iraq, England and Iran.
