Turkey has been struggling to live up to its status as a major emerging global market in the past two years. However, its retail market is set to recover and return to a growth trajectory as new legislation, recovery of the country's main trade partners and growth of household income will expand growth opportunities in the highly promising Turkish retail sector.

The Turkish economy has underperformed in the last two years. The growth of the country's real GDP slowed to 2.9% in 2014 and is forecast to fall to 2.8% this year. With these growth rates Turkey is facing problems more characteristic to mature EU economies rather than the world's most promising emerging retail markets. Unemployment rate in Turkey reached its four-year high in 2015 and is forecast to average 11.0% throughout 2015. The economy, which was booming in 2010-2011, is correcting itself. Some of the jobs that were created during the economic expansion, such as in the construction sector, are no longer needed, which has resulted in mismatches between labour supply and demand. Unemployment is particularly problematic among young people: youth (15-24 years) unemployment reached 17.0% mark in July 2015 suggesting about structural problems in the Turkish labour infrastructure and career guidance.

High unemployment and more modest economic growth than expected are going to result in a weaker growth in household income. Turkish households will see an average annual 4.6% growth rate throughout 2016-2019.
