    The industrial sector of Ukraine: Trends, challenges and policy options


    Ukraine’s industry is subject to a short-term fall in output and a long-run process of relative decline due to incomplete structural change. The long run incorporates a gradual structural change from an emphasis on heavy to light industry and a trend towards a more even distribution of industry across the country. The heavy industry remains very important for Ukraine. Metals, mining and machine accounted for almost 50% of industrial sales in 2013. However, lighter industry subsectors such as food processing, furniture and chemicals/pharma outperformed the heavy industry in the growth of sales in 2010- 2013, before the present crisis. At 26% of industrial sales, food processing also was the single largest subsector in 2013.
