1 DEFENSE INDUSTRY IN TURKEY

2 The Historical Developments of Turkish Defense Industry Defense industry, which had a strong position up until the 17th century, could not follow the technological developments of Europe in the 18th century and totally lost its impact starting from the First World War. Defense industry, which had a strong position up until the 17th century, could not follow the technological developments of Europe in the 18th century and totally lost its impact starting from the First World War. No significant defense industry infrastructure was present during the first years of the Republic No significant defense industry infrastructure was present during the first years of the Republic After the Second World War Period, foreign military aid received upon promotion of bilateral relations with the United States and Turkey’s membership of NATO cut the process of development of Turkish Defense Industry. After the Second World War Period, foreign military aid received upon promotion of bilateral relations with the United States and Turkey’s membership of NATO cut the process of development of Turkish Defense Industry.

3 The Historical Developments of Turkish Defense Industry In the 1960’s, Cyprus crises in 1963 and 1967, Cyprus Peace Operation in 1974 and the arms embargo following the Peace Operation necessitated the development of a defense industry based on national resources. In the 1960’s, Cyprus crises in 1963 and 1967, Cyprus Peace Operation in 1974 and the arms embargo following the Peace Operation necessitated the development of a defense industry based on national resources. After 1974 Turkish Armed Forces Foundation were established After 1974 Turkish Armed Forces Foundation were established

12 Vertical Integration  Large companies of Turkish Defense Industry have realized vertical integration.  For example; ROKETSAN can produce some relevant equipment for the final product. But this production is too limited because of the technological impossibility

13 Product Differentiation in Defense Industry  Product differentiation is an important competition method in defense industry.  But there is not much firm which are in competition with each other.

14 Diversification in defense industry  Turkey continues in its role as the “Crossroads of the World,” a land bridge between Europe and Asia, and Turkish firms remain active in Russia, the Caucasus, Central Asia and the Middle East. So the Turkish market offers strong growth prospects across the board for all the firms from different countries. To meet new opportunities, all companies should diversify their product bases to include equipment with defense.  Aselsan produces wireless for army and at the same time they can produce for the polices and for special security firms by diversifying the product.

15 CONDUCT OF THE TURKISH DEFENSE INDUSTRY BUSINESS OBJECTIVES

16 Vision of TAI; Continuously improving to be a world class Continuously improving to be a world class Having high quality and being competitive component producer Having high quality and being competitive component producer Being sales and engineering center for customers around the world Being sales and engineering center for customers around the world Optimizing and utilizing all assets and resources to pursue all the market place Optimizing and utilizing all assets and resources to pursue all the market place

17 PRICE SETTING MECHANISM PRICING POLICY PRICE SETTING MECHANISM PRICING POLICY !! The quality of the products has the priority the entrepreneurs may not achieve their maximum profits because firms have to produce certain goods whose qualities, quantities and designs are determined by Turkish Armed Forces previously.

18 PRICE ELASTICITY OF DEMAND There is only one buyer (TAF) and large numbers of sellers, which is called monopsony market There is only one buyer (TAF) and large numbers of sellers, which is called monopsony market TAF always prefers to buy the defense products in internal market, if current technology in the country is available and also the costs of production are not so high. As a result, the elasticity of demand (EOD) becomes approximately inelastic in domestic markets. TAF always prefers to buy the defense products in internal market, if current technology in the country is available and also the costs of production are not so high. As a result, the elasticity of demand (EOD) becomes approximately inelastic in domestic markets.

19 PRODUCT DESIGN IN DEFENSE INDUSTRY  Product design is very long process in defense industry because the products are very important, specific and expensive  Customers and Producers are in contact and coordination in all the parts of the production.

20 RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT (R&D) IN DEFENSE INDUSTRY

21  Research and development is the cornerstone of this industry  5-10 % of the defense budget is being arranging for R&D in some developed countries but in Turkey this amount is only 1 % of the defense budget.

22 ADVERTISING AND MARKETING IN DEFENSE INDUSTRY  Advertisement and marketing is not widespread and possible for defense industry by the well known methods because products are being produced for governments. But: But:  Defense fairs can be organized  Turkey foreign commerce diplomats and military diplomats can present and introduce the Turkish defense industry products to the foreigner

23 Merger Advantage; Advantage; Companies’ competition power will increase. Companies’ competition power will increase.  Huge mergered companies couldn’t reach in Turkish Defense Industry.  We mention that Aselsan is a big company but its annual revenue is only million dollars. On the other hand, Lockheed Martin’s annual revenue is approximately 22 billon dollars.  In april, 2005 TAI and TUSAS agreed to merge under a single corporate identity.

24 Performance Of The Defense Industry

25 Price-Cost Margin  When we look at the theory; in perfectly competitive equilibrium “PCM=0” but if the firm exercises some market power and can elevate price above average cost so PCM is greater then zero. We know that defense industry does not act as a perfectly competitive market so we can say that PCM is above the zero

26 GROWTH IN DEFENSE INDUSTRY  Turkey has a great potential to growth because of the geographic location. All the neighbors have bigger amount of budget for defense than Turkey has so this is a treat for Turkey. To eliminate this treat Turkey should increase its defense industry budget so this situation creates a growth potential for Turkey.

27 Quality of Products and Services Technical specification requires AQAP or ISO certificates. Technical specification requires AQAP or ISO certificates. Majority of our dominant firms have these certifications. For example; TAI‘s quality certifications are shown at the below;  ISO 9002 : January 13, 1995  AQAP-120 : February 28, 1998  ISO 9001 :May 22, 1998  AQAP-110 : July 24, 2000

28 This is a quality certification of Alp Aviation.

29 Different Types Of Quality certifications

30 Technological Progress  Technological progress may be considered a relevant performance indicator and it produces perhaps the most fundamental type of feedback for the basic conditions of demand and supply.  In Turkish Defense Industry has developed about this topic since American weapon embargo on Turkey (1974).

31 Government Interference

32 Competition Policy  There is free competition for all domestic or foreign private corporations.  The domestic industries (i.e. Aselsan, Havelsan, FNSS…etc) and related organizations engage in technological cooperation among themselves in a race for service, but without entering into destructive competition and by observing the integrity and interests of the state and nation.

33 Taxes Some taxes will be mentioned at the below that are paid by the domestic companies;  Decision stamp : %0, 45 of agreement value.  Agreement revenue stamp: %0, 75 of agreement value.  Advance revenue stamp: %0, 75 advance payment.  Value added tax: %18 of bill value. Total direct and indirect taxes are approximately %30 of companies’ net income. In December, 2002 Aselsan’s income before tax was equal to 81,566,907 million TL and it paid 32,223,560 million TL to the government.

34 Subsidies  Direct subsides can not be reached in Turkish defense industry.  The Undersecretary of Defense Industries uses the special “Defense Industries Support Fund” for material and service purchases.

35 REGULATION & DEREGULATION IN DEFENSE INDUSTRY  In Turkish Constitution we can find some regulations about the defense industry but these are about arranging the budget of the defense expenditure or functions of the staffs. For example 1324, 1325 and 3238 numbered laws are about the defense industry and arranging the procurement mechanism of defense industry

36 TRADE POLICY IN DEFENSE INDUSTRY  Since 2004 Turkey has been trying to establish its’ own defense industry by dealing with R&D, creating new trade policy and new procurement strategies. Because Turkey is currently highly dependent on imports and should establish its own defense industry

37 MACROECONOMIC POLICY OF GOVERNMENT IN TURKISH DEFENSE INDUSTRY BUDGET PROPORTIONS & THE INCREASING DEFENSE SPENDING AND GOVERNMENT GROWTH

38 The most important portion of the resources allocated to defense is constituted by the budget of the Ministry of National Defense. The most important portion of the resources allocated to defense is constituted by the budget of the Ministry of National Defense.

45 Suggestions for the Turkish Defense Industry We can mention to fulfill the requirements for improving and ensuring the continuity for the Turkish Defense Industry in two main categories; We can mention to fulfill the requirements for improving and ensuring the continuity for the Turkish Defense Industry in two main categories; 1.) Political side 1.) Political side 2.) Application side 2.) Application side

46 1.) Political side: * If Turkey wants to attain its main target, it should consider that SSM as only authority for all decisions. * If Turkey wants to attain its main target, it should consider that SSM as only authority for all decisions. 2.) Application side: * To increase the production capacity of firms * Domestic companies should be supported for improving new projects * To organize a subsidiary mechanism for our companies and tax rate ought to be decrease. * To organize a loan mechanism for export aims. * Defense industry should be propped up by the Offset mechanism. * High qualify labor force have to be supported by the government. Otherwise, they might go abroad for working.
