Italian term or phrase: discreto indotto
Inoltre, in Turchia, si può contare anche su un discreto indotto, grazie alla presenza di altri importanti produttori di elettrodomestici, come Indesit e Vestel.

This is from a press release about the establishment of a kitchen hood manfacturer in Turkey.

English translation:a fair number of suppliers (of semi-finished goods)
Explanation:
Never easy to translate. It means what has been "induced" by, or has grown up around a major manufacture (e.g. Fiat), i.e. lots of small firms created to supply it with semi-finished goods, paints, nuts and bolts etc. Here it is used to refer to those suppliers which already exist because of the presence of Indesit and Vestel.
