Mehmet ÖZKUL.

Abstract
In the white goods sector, as a result of the fact that products have been standardized to a large extent and have reached the “mature product” stage, and the high demand potential in the domestic markets of the emerging markets, manufacturing centers have been shifting towards the emerging countries. Because of that emerging countries firms which have produced high quality products with lower cost in white goods sector, have raised their shares in total world production and export. Turkey is the one of the countries which has the most benefited these improvements. Firms which have developed their technology capacity and rose from contact manufacturer to brand manufacturer in the value chains and innovative chains the best examples of which can be seen in white goods sector. In contrast to other countries, thanks to ARGE and technology investment of Arçelik, Vestel and also other firms in the sector, white goods sector has been one of the most innovative sectors in Turkey.

Key words: White goods, value chain, Arçelik, Vestel. JEL Classification: F23



TÜRKİYE EKONOMİSİNDE BEYAZ EŞYA SEKTÖRÜNÜN ÖNEMİ

Ozet
Beyaz eşya sektöründe, ürünlerin büyük ölçüde standartlaşıp olgun ürün aşamasına gelmesi ve yükselen ekonomilerin iç piyasalarındaki yüksek talep potansiyeli sonucu, üretim merkezleri yükselen ekonomilere kaymaktadır. Yükselen ekonomiler, yüksek kaliteli ürünlerini daha düşük maliyet ile üretebilir duruma gelerek dünya beyaz eşya üretim ve ihracatında önemli birer aktör konumuna gelmişlerdir. Bu süreçten en iyi yararlanan ülkelerden birisi de Türkiye’dir. Türkiye’de AR&GE ve teknolojiye önem vererek fason imalatçı olarak girdikleri değer zincirlerinde yükselip ardından kendi değer zincirleri ve yenilik ağlarını kuran en iyi firma örneklerini beyaz eşya sektöründe görebiliriz. Arçelik ve Vestel ile birlikte sektördeki diğer firmaların da AR&GE’ye ve yatırıma ağırlık vermesi ile beyaz eşya sektörü, Türkiye’de diğer ülkelerin tersine en yenilikçi sektörlerden birisi haline gelmiştir.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Beyaz eşya, değer zinciri, Arçelik, Vestel. JEL Sınıflaması: F23
