Situated between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean, Turkey manages most of its trade through maritime transportation. In 2017, 62.5 percent of all foreign trade travelled through the country’s numerous sea ports. In order to uphold the importance of maritime transportation, Turkey consistently invests in its sea port infrastructure. Figures peaked at 73.2 million euros in 2012, before declining to a low of 8.4 percent in 2015. Floating dock investments specifically numbered 26 in 2017, which was more than double the amount of investments made toward dry docks in the same year.
Between 2011 and 2018, exports of cruise ships and similar ships for transport of goods and passengers were worth a total 4.46 billion U.S. dollars. In 2018, annual exports of these ships valued at 502.3 million U.S. dollars. By comparison, that same year, tugs and pusher crafts worth 149.5 million U.S. dollars had been exported by Turkey.
