A study by Netflix revealed the impact of Turkish productions on the creative industries and the supply chain in Turkey. The research shows that since the launch of The Protector in 2018, the total supply chain impact triggered by Netflix as a result of spending on all Turkish series productions is estimated to be in excess of ₺583M.
Netflix has also created 3,300+ jobs in the production ecosystem in Turkey since 2018. In terms of wider cultural impact, Netflix’s investment in Turkish stories benefits Turkey’s creative economy. Examples of this include increased sales of books which Netflix shows are based on, higher visitor numbers to locations where the shows are filmed, and exposure of music by Turkish artists featured in Netflix series.
