Statement from Mr. Adnan Aslan, Chairman of Steel Exporters’ Association

Turkish iron and steel industry is one of the leading sectors of Turkish economy. Since its establishment at the beginning of 1920’s, Turkish steel industry has seen considerable innovations, reflecting a commitment to respond to the evolutions in global steel markets. 

Steel industry in Türkiye has witnessed consistent growth, expanding exponentially in response to strong global demand for high quality steel products. Today, with its 26 electric arc furnace mills (EAF), 11 induction furnaces and 3 BOF plants, Türkiye’s crude steel production has reached to 40.4 million tons in 2021. With these figures, in 2021 Türkiye was Europe’s top crude steel producer, and sixth (6th) largest in the world ranking of steel-producing countries. 

Türkiye is also one of the biggest exporters of steel products, holding the sixth place among steel exporting countries and top exporter of reinforcement bars used for construction. With high quality products, competitive prices and effective marketing strategies, Turkish steel exporters has a large market coverage; Turkish steel products have been exported approximately 200 countries and to all regions of the world.

By organizing this trade delegation to Israel, we are aiming to bring Israeli and Turkish companies together to explore areas of cooperation and new business prospects in order to create mutually beneficial and fruitful business relationships that will build a bridge between two countries to bring us even closer.
