What is Heavy Industry?

There is no single and fixed meaning to characterize the heavy or light industry. Some tend to describe heavy-weight industries as heavy industries, others think that equipment such as production lines, giant vehicles, or the like are heavy industries.

Others also believe major buildings, chemical plants, even rockets, construction equipment such as cranes and bulldozers, or even products produced by iron, oil, coal, ships, and other industries are heavy industries.

Heavy industries are known for their high costs and the large capital spent on them.

About Heavy Industries in Turkey

Turkey has strengthened its position in heavy industry sectors of all kinds, from military aircraft and electric trains to self-driving cars, and giant ship industries.

Over the past two decades, Turkey has mobilized its full capacity to finance innovation and local development, freeing itself in such a short period from the import of its needs for heavy industries from abroad; and replacing this with self-manufacturing with high efficiency that has placed it among the world's important industrialized countries.

The last decade has also witnessed a giant revolution in light and consumer industries of all kinds, in addition to the marine industries sector, and the export of metals and steel, eventually achieving unprecedented figures in industrial and commercial history.

Turkey's Position Among Countries Concerning Heavy Industry

Turkey is striving at full capacity today in a race against time to develop its industrial sector in heavy and light industry, competing with the strongest economies of the world, seeking to reach the third industrial place at the level of Europe.

Heavy industries have enabled Turkey to overcome international and local challenges and obstacles to continue development programs and ambitious visions until 2023, which means a lot to the Turks.

It was only natural for Turkey to benefit from the intensity and experience of the labour force, and the relatively competitive wages compared to the wage ratios of workers in other countries.

It is surprising to find that major European companies are forced to close their factories in Europe and transfer their industrial equipment and entire laboratories to Turkey, to take advantage of the aforementioned factors, in addition to facing the turmoil witnessed in Europe and other countries of the world in the energy supply sector and its high costs.
