Elevator Market in Turkey
Elevator sector report in Turkey was published by the Ministry of Science Industry and Technology for 2017 year. When we reviewed the report, we can see that the Export value of the elevator sector including spare parts and equipment was 159 million US Dollars. Import value of Turkey in this sector was 224 million US Dollars. The difference between the export and import was $65 million for 2017, this value was 157 million dollars in previous year (2016). This can be seen as an achievement. In Sectorial Report of General Directorate for Industry, there are 2,285 companies in this field and 2100 companies have Service Adequacy Certificate (HYB). Also the number of assembly companies is nearly 2100.
More or less seven global elevator companies worked in Turkey for both producing and installing. We haven’t got a global company for own trade mark. Our companies learned how to manufacture good quality cabin buffer, controller, cabin, speed regulator, pit box, machine frame, speed governor, over speed governor, speed governor frame, counterweight guide rails, hitch plate, some of the ropes, fixing plate, cabin door, landing door, car guide rails, machine bedplate, counter weight frame, counter weight, car frame/slings, roller guide shoes, fixing plate, diverter pulley, traction pulley, and more that have the capacity to compete with Europe in quality and with a suitable prices. Moreover, some of the companies collect the components from the foreign and domestic market and call it “package elevator”. As a result, we haven’t got our model and mark, elevators was installed up to the speed of 2.5-3 mph by elevator companies with collecting the components. In some of the elevator project like as for luxury hotels or residences, speed of the lift is the most important expectation. Increasing the speed of the elevator increase the cost of the lift. Domestic companies cannot be manufactured the elevator components operating at a speed of 4-5 mph and more.
