Which Sectors are Preferred by Syrian Investors ?

It is observed that 74% of enterprises started by Syrian investors in Turkey are micro-enterprises (less than 10 employees), and 24% of them are small-scaled enterprises (up to 50 employees). Only four Syrian enterprises are reported as middle-scaled enterprises (between 50 and 250 employees). Syrian investors do not have large-scaled enterprises.

These enterprises take active roles in various sectors. When examining their divisions by line of business, we can divide them into four as wholesalers, retailers, service providers, and manufacturers.

When examining enterprises thoroughly, we can obtain a more detailed segment map. The majority of Syrian investors have shown themselves in the fields of wholesale and trail trade.

In addition to these fields, assets of Syrian investors also will be seen in the fields of manufacturing, accommodation and food services, information and communication, administrative and support services, and real estate.

The manufacturing sector varies within  itself: food, leather products, plastics, clothing, and machinery.

The same diversity is true in the service sector: tourism, transportation, translation, education, advertising and business administration consultancy services.

Syrians invest in manufacturing sector in and around Gaziantep, while enterprises in Istanbul center upon accommodation, food services, administrative and support services.

Furthermore, Syrian business managers living in Istanbul also take active roles in exports (to Syria in particular). Some of these exports are food products, medicinal products, oil/oiling products. These sectors that have already embraced Syrian investors can be considered as profitable investment sectors for other Syrians who want to invest in the future. These sectors, which are already accustomed with working with Syrians, may be easier to enter.
