Updated:2012-12-04 17:24:40
More than 1000 marble quarries, 1500 factories and about 7500 workshops operate in the sector. 90 % of quarries are located in the west of Anatolia, mainly in the Aegean and Marmara Regions.
Production of natural stones in Turkey faced a rapid growth during the recent years. Large scale private companies invested in integrated processing plants, which resulted in developments in the local market.
With the introduction of modern production equipment and methods Turkey has taken its place among the world’s seven large natural stone manufacturers. The production capacity of natural stones in Turkish market for marble is 6.5 million m2 and for granite 10,5 million m2. The increasing in production, the vitality of the construction sector in the domestic market and the presence of new technologies has contributed to widespread use of natural stone as a construction material. Parallel to the increase in both domestic and foreign or international demand, the Turkish marble industry has shown very good performance in terms of quality and production capacity.
Today, Turkish natural stone products are highly competitive in international markets, particularly in terms of exclusivity and quality. Turkish marble manufacturers are aware of the importance of quality. They use the world’s most advanced, fully electronic and completely automatic machines. Most companies have a large machinery park and in the marble quarry the latest technology and high-tech machines are being used. The processing plants are capable of producing tiles, cutting to size order in all commercially required sizes and quality standards.
Granite, generally used in developed countries because of its characteristic properties, has begun to be widely used in Turkey, too. Today it is extensively used for the inner and outer decorations of buildings because of its appearance, durability against external conditions and high resistance to wear. In Turkey, in addition to large marble reserves there are also granite reserves in many cities such as Ordu, Rize, Trabzon, Balikesir, Kirklareli, Kirsehir, Bolu, ?zmit, ?anakkale and ?zmir.
Though the natural stone quarrying and processing sector in Turkey is mainly composed of small and mediumsized companies, these companies are well organized under producers associations and exporters’ unions.
With its vast reserves, advanced processing techniques and capacity, Turkey is one of the world’s important centers of the natural stone industry. These stones are exhibited in international and local fairs organized in Turkey. Two fairs related to the natural stone industry will be held in Turkey.
?    “The International Marble & Natural Stone Technologies Fair” which is organized by IZFA?, Izmir Fair Services in Izmir every year in March, is a meeting place for the international natural stone industry.
