Production of pharmaceutical preparations done in pharmaceuticals laboratories between 1928 and 1950 had
increased with the establishment of local and foreign invested plants starting from the year 1952, which is the start
of the “fabrication period” of the Turkish pharmaceuticals industry. Within the period after 1984 up to the present,
investments of foreign capital companies have increased and especially after the year 1990, 19 foreign capital
firms have entered into Turkish pharmaceuticals market. 

Today, there are 53 manufacturing facilities and approximately 300 entities operating in the sector in Turkey.
39 of the manufacturing facilities are local firms. 

On the other hand, 14 of the manufacturing facilities and 134 of the entities are owned by multinational firms.
Pharmaceutical industry has a production structure comprised of high level of technology and automation.
Approximately 31.000 people are employed in the sector. 

Pharmaceuticals industry, due to its nature, is one of the industries which has a high proportion of personnel
with university education (50%). Turkish pharmaceutical industry is mainly located in the Marmara Region
especially in provinces of Istanbul, Kocaeli and Tekirdağ. This is mainly due to the better infrastructure, ease
of supply in packaging materials and technical personnel, telecommunication and transportation facilities and
the existence of a high number of health institutions in the region. The Turkish pharmaceutical industry has a
well-organized structure. Most of the manufacturers and exporters have been organized under the roof of “
The Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association of Turkey” (İlaç Endüstrisi İşverenler Sendikası).
