In this study, strategic sectors of Turkish Manufacturing Industry has been analaysed according to 2002 input-output tables by using Chenery-Watanabe, Rasmussen-Ghosh, Dietzenbacher and Laumas coefficient models. Although strategic importance have been defined acording to linkage coefficient in the all models, there has been some differences between calculation of coefficients in each model. Chenery-Watanabe, Rasmussen-Ghosh, Dietzenbacher methods take into account sectoral linkages while Laumas method focuses on final de mand and value added effects. Therefore some differencess has been observed between emprical finding of methods about strategic importance. According to the empirical findings of the study; textile sector have been found strategic in all methods through strong sectoral linkages, huge final demand and value added effects. With regard to Laumas method which gives comprehensive framework to evaluation of strategic importance, 5 sector have been found strategic while 2 of 17 manufacturing industry have been found strong according to forward linkages. Strategic sectors are; food-beverage, textile, garment, chemical products and machinery products. The sectors which have strong forward linkage are non metallic mineral products and basic metal industry.
