Turkey’s exports of medical products doubled in 2020 compared to the previous year amid the coronavirus pandemic, the Turkish Exporters Assembly (TIM) said on Tuesday.

In a statement, the assembly said the exports increased by %108 billion to reach $5 billion last year.

As the demand for Turkish medical products increases each year, the country’s exports of disinfectants jumped 2,115% to $243 million in 2020, the statement said.

The country’s ventilator exports surged 195% to $48 million during the same period, it added.

Commenting on the figure, TIM head Ismail Gulle said Turkey has proved to the world that the country is a reliable supplier of medical products.​​​​​​​
