Spotlight: Turkey’s automotive sector faces challenges amid dropping demand
Turkey’s key automotive sector is trying to compensate losses due to the COVID-19 outbreak by fully restarting manufacturing after a long break, but the drop in domestic and international demand will be challenging, industry officials said.
Factory production in Bursa province, northwestern Turkey, where the bulk of the automotive industry is located, was not completely halted during lockdown as there was still demand from the Far East and South America.
Tugrul Arikan, general manager of Turkish bus manufacturer Anadolu Isuzu, recently said their factories were running at 60-percent capacity, which could increase if foreign demand rises.
He added that the company had started production with only 50 percent of the workforce initially, and enhanced safety measures to protect workers from contracting the coronavirus.
The sector struggled with a major drop in exports as Europe came to a near standstill because of the pandemic. Around 75 percent of vehicles manufactured in the country are exported to the region.
Automotive Manufacturers’ Association (OSD) data showed that Turkey’s total automotive exports declined by 33 percent annually in January-April.
“Domestic demand in Turkey was not enough to offset the collapse in demand from Europe for the automakers,” Alper Kanca, head of the Automotive Supplier Industry (TAYSAD), said.
The official said they expected a revival of the sector in 2021, after a contraction this year.
Turkey’s automotive industry has developed from assembly-based production to an industry with research and development, and design capabilities, and high added values.
The sector has been of key value to local production input over the years, with the partnerships established between foreign companies, such as Ford, Fiat, Renault, Toyota and Hyundai, and Turkish entrepreneurs.
Turkey is now the largest light commercial vehicle manufacturer in Europe and ranks 14th in the world in terms of automotive production output.
The automotive industry is one of the main locomotives of the manufacturing sector in Turkey. It is also one of the main sources of employment in the country, providing more than 400,000 jobs.
It is also one of the largest sources of exports, accounting for 16 percent of total exports.
A source close to the government told Xinhua that the sector would be unlikely to reach the levels of 2018 or 2019 in short term, but it is expected to rebound at the end of the year in line with the economic recovery.
More than 1.3 million vehicles were exported from Turkey to foreign markets in the same year. In addition, Turkey was the number one vehicle exporter to European markets with 1.1 million units in 2018, statistics show.
In a car dealer shop in capital Ankara, a sales representative told Xinhua that sales have plummeted during the outbreak because of the lockdown and the fact that customers didn’t know what to expect in the aftermath.
“The Turkish customers definitively love cars and we expect a revival ahead in the stagnated domestic market,” Merdan Yasa said, adding that the government should also look into some tax advantages for consumers considering the declining national currency.
The decision has increased car prices by up to one percent, according to experts.
Turkey kills at least 7 YPG, PKK members in Syria and Iraq: ministry
Turkish security forces killed five members of the Syrian Kurdish People‘s Protection Units (YPG) in northern Syria, and two members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in northern Iraq, Turkey‘s Defense Ministry said on Saturday.
“Two PKK terrorists have been neutralized in Avasin region in an airstrike after they were determined by means of reconnaissance and surveillance. Our operations continue until the last terrorist is neutralized,” said the ministry in its Twitter account.
Turkish authorities often use the term “neutralize” in statements to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.
In a separate statement, the Defense Ministry also said that the Turkish commandos “neutralized” five members of the YPG in northern Syria as they were trying to “infiltrate into the region of Peace Spring aiming to destroy peace and security environment.”
Turkish security forces have long been conducting operations against the PKK in southeastern Turkey and in northern Iraq where the group has hideouts. These operations are intensified in the past few months. PKK members often use northern Iraq to launch cross-border attacks in Turkey.
Turkey sees the YPG group as the Syrian branch of the PKK. The Turkish army launched Operation Euphrates Shield in 2016, Operation Olive Branch in 2018, Operation Peace Spring in 2019, and Operation Spring Shield in 2020 in northern Syria in order to create a YPG-free zone along its border within the neighboring country.
The PKK, listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States, and the EU, has been rebelling against the Turkish government for over 30 years, which has claimed the lives of more than 40,000 people.
Turkey’s drillship sails off to Black Sea for new mission

Donmez also noted that Turkey will begin oil exploration in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea within three to four months as part of an agreement with the Libyan government.
He said the Turkish Petroleum Corporation applied to Libya to carry out oil exploration in its licensed area in the Mediterranean.

This is the fifth consecutive day that the number of patients has risen, after only five new patients were diagnosed on May 24.
In early May, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that if the number of daily new patients exceeds 100, there would be a halt in removing restrictions in Israel.
Tunisian Ministry of Health announced the detection of three new imported COVID-19 cases, bringing the total number of infected people to 1,071.
