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.
