An Analysis For Industrial Development In Turkey. I: Distribution of The Largest Companies

Ahmet YÜCEKAYA [1]


The location of large companies can be used to analyze the distribution of industrial facilities and capital. Turkey, an emerging economy, has experienced a rapid change for the last two decades in terms of industrial change. In this paper, we propose a trend analysis-based methodology to analyze the development of the largest 500 companies in Turkey in an effort to observe the regional change and development. We first analyze the number of companies in seven regions between 2012 and 2015 and observe that the number of the largest companies move from the developed regions to less developed regions. A city-based research on the most important cities for the analysis is also included in our project. It is observed that central industrial cities including Istanbul rapidly lose their largest companies to other cities. The results of the city and region analysis confirm that a higher number of large companies are likely to emerge in different cities and regions of the country.
