Marble in Turkey and the World

Located in the Alpine belt, where the world's richest natural stone formations are located, Turkey has a wide variety of marble reserves. In addition to these resources, Turkey is among the most important natural stone producers in the world with its developing industry and the technology it uses in production. These important reserves are spread over a wide region throughout Anatolia and Thrace. Afyon, Bilecik, Balikesir, Denizli, Muğla, Amasya, Elazig and Diyarbakir are the provinces where the reserves are concentrated.


Turkey's natural stone and marble production has shown a great increase in recent years. Especially with the investments made by big companies, and the integrated production facilities, a great increase was recorded in the production of processed marble. Thanks to the modern quarry production methods and latest techniques that have been implemented, Turkey has become one of the seven leading producer countries in the world natural stone production.


In marble mining, almost all of which is produced by the private sector, the annual block production is around 3,000,000 tons; The total plate production capacity of the processing facilities is approximately 13 million m2.

Turkey, which has an important place in terms of world marble reserves, is a country with a high market chance with its marble varieties with up to 400 color and texture quality.


The use of natural stones as building and decoration materials has led to an increase in world natural stone production. In particular, the increase observed in the last ten years parallels the developments in acquisition and processing technology. With the increasingly perfected processing techniques, the stone is processed more easily and economically as desired and finds many new uses.

The fact that materials made of natural stone are more preferred by architects and decorators causes an increase in the number of consumers in the world. In addition, the significant decrease in market prices, the increase in the interest in ecological and aesthetic-looking materials are the factors that help increase consumption. Experts predict that this development will continue in the coming years. Today, seven important natural stone producing countries realize 70 percent of the world production.


How is Marble Work done? How is Marble Polish Applied?

The raw marble extracted from the quarry can be cleaned after the cutting process and turned into block marble. Then, the marble plate is obtained by cutting it into thin plates with the help of a machine.

Decorative mosaic marble tiles, which are indispensable especially for kitchens and bathrooms, are created by combining the pieces cut from the plates with a Waterjet machine.

Whether marble slabs or marble tiles are produced, appropriate polish and surface treatments are applied before being presented to the user. These processes offer you a pleasant use by protecting the marble product and increasing its life.
