Turkey Packaging Outlook

Istanbul is Turkey’s powerhouse. The city is the country’s economical capital and is where over 14 million people reside.
In recent years the packaging industry in Turkey has developed due to a growth in population and living standards, rapid urbanization, diversification of consumer goods and an increase in exports. Furthermore, the county’s expanding middle class has led to investments in the area of food manufacturing, healthcare and construction, providing significant opportunities for international packaging suppliers looking to enter the market.
