Abstract

The post-war period witnessed the emergence of large scale Turkish private capital, which was mostly under family ownership. The presence of a big domestic market, a high rate of population growth, massive migration from rural areas and the emergence of middle and high-income groups in the cities all paved the way for a growth in demand for a wide range of consumer goods. As a result, large domestic private capital has invested in the white goods industry along with direct foreign investment and joint ventures.1
