eCommerce information about Turkey
Turkey's location next to both the Mediterranean and the Black Seas makes it a destination of strategical importance, as the border between Europe and Asia. eCommerce in Turkey now represents 1.6% of all its retail business and whilst the country’s economy is in a period of relatively slow growth, the eCommerce sector showed a strong increase in growth. Istanbul and Ankara are two of the most frequently sent to cities due to their vast populations, whilst tourism also drives up the volume of goods sent to and from Turkey.
74 million people reside in Turkey, many of them expats from other countries, so there is the parcel delivery market of friends and family shipping goods to those who chose to now live here. Internet usage stands at around 49% penetration in Turkey, with around 37.7 million people online via fixed or mobile connections, meaning eCommerce is set to thrive, as Turks look to overseas suppliers to provide the best range of products and prices. In terms of European country ranking of the highest number of internet users, Turkey is in 5th place, just after Germany, Russia, the UK, and France.
The top three countries who supply imports to Turkey are China, Germany, and Russia. Almost one-quarter of the population has made a purchase online, and 15% buy at least once every three months and in terms of the eCommerce product categories, electronics are generating $2.7 billion USD, followed by fashion and furniture both accounting for $1.4 billion USD market share. It is estimated that the eCommerce sector in Turkey is expected to reach $11.5 billion USD by 2020.
