Abstract

The   article   analyzes   the   three-and   ten-year   expectations   of industrial  managers  regarding  the  dynamics  of  demand  for  the  products  of their  enterprises  based  on  data  for  2004–2017.  In  general,  companies  are counting on stable or growing demand. At the same time, a sharp increase in the  level  of  uncertainty  was  recorded:  about  20%  of  producers  failed  to suggest  the  direction  of  change  in  demand  for  their  products.  Optimistic enterprises   were   characterized   by   a   better   financial   position   and   more vigorous  investment  activity.  Differences  in  other  indicators  were  not  very significant.
