Composite, which is a strategic raw material and final product especially for the defense and aerospace industry, stands out with its lightness and durability compared to other materials.
All parties from the production to the design, from the simulation to the supply of the composite, which is increasingly being used in many sectors such as wind energy, automotive and medical, met in Istanbul.
Industry and Technology Minister Mustafa Varank visited the Turkish Composite 2022 Fair and examined the products of the companies participating in the fair. Expressing that he is very happy to see the progress in the composites industry, Minister Varank said, "Turkey is increasing its capabilities in this field day by day." said.

Making an assessment after the visit, Varank said:
ISTANBUL STOP POINT
The composite industry is a sector that aims to produce lighter and more robust materials. In this sense, Turkey is a country that is increasing its capabilities day by day. Istanbul has become a frequent destination for companies seeking global suppliers. In this fair, too, our 100 companies welcome thousands of visitors here and present the capabilities of the companies in Turkey in the composite industry, which products they develop and produce, in which areas they can be suppliers, and show them.
BOTH RAW MATERIAL AND FINISHED PRODUCT
We were at the Wind Energy Fair in Germany recently. A significant part of the materials used in wind energy is made of composite. Our companies here can produce in many different fields, from the defense industry to wind energy. We have companies that produce the finished products while producing the raw materials and the sub-industry of these in terms of composites. Composites fair is a fair where we can see these capabilities.
As the Ministry of Industry and Technology, we are very happy to see that we have progressed in this field and that investments in this field continue. We welcome business people from the industry, as well as enthusiasts and academics, who want to see what is being done in the composite industry, to the Lütfi Kırdar Congress Center. Let them come and visit this fair until October 8th. They can see what's going on in the sector, where the trends are going, and they can see the talents in Turkey and make forward-looking business deals at this fair.
THE ONLY IN TURKEY IN THE FIELD
The Turkish Composites Fair is shown as one of the 5 most important fairs in Europe as well as being the only one in Turkey. Raw materials of companies such as resin, fiber, technical textile, thermoset and thermoplastic are exhibited at the fair. Semi and intermediate products, final products, processing technologies, machinery and equipment and consumables are also exhibited at the fair. At the fair, where technical and commercial seminars will be held, product exhibitions, live demos and product demonstrations are held.
