Defense industry: Cyber, anti-riot, special forces emerging niche markets

Turkey’s local defense companies and their foreign partners may see a near-boom in smaller but specialist industries in the coming years, including cyber technologies, anti-riot equipment and a variety of gear for the country’s special forces, industry sources agree.

“These will probably become niche markets with a growing number of players in the years ahead,” a senior defense industry official said.

Only this year, Turkey hosted about a dozen conferences on cyber security and new technologies. The most recent one was on Nov. 19-20, bringing together 450 military officers, cyber experts, cyber defense officials and industry representatives from Turkey, the United States, Britain, Germany, France, Canada, Italy, Finland, Hungary, Albania, Azerbaijan and South Korea.
