Turkey – A Bright Spot in the Stainless Steel World

The Turkish market has outperformed most markets in terms of stainless demand growth since the year 2000. The market for stainless steel in Turkey reached around 450,000 tonnes in 2015 compared to 230,000 tonnes in 2005 and just 95,000 tonnes in 2000.

This corresponds to an average growth rate of 10 % per year which is higher than e.g. Brazil (5 %), Russia (5 %), or India (8 %). In comparison, the overall European market did not grow at all during this timeframe. Thus, Turkey can be considered as one of the bright spots in the stainless steel world!

In 2013, POSCO Assan TST started production of cold rolled coils in Turkey from imported hot band which significantly changed the competitive landscape in the market. Import duties of 8 % were imposed on cold rolled products which resulted in a drop of imports in 2014 and 2015.

The Marmara region around Istanbul only accounts for 9 % of the Turkish land and for 30 % of the population, but is the main hotspot for stainless steel with a share of 65 % from the total stainless steel demand. Turkey has a solid industrial base and stainless steel is widely used across all end use segments including appliances, sinks & kitchenware, process equipment, building & construction as well as transport.
