East European Trailer Market hit by more falls in Turkish vehicle demand

17th October 2017 | 0 Comments

Market analysts at Clear report that the Eastern Europe trailer market has been hit by a severe downturn in the Turkish market for commercial vehicles. The forecast for Turkey in 2017 is for a fall in trailer demand of 29 per cent on the back of large declines in 2015 and 2016.
