In 2018 the output dynamics of the manufacturing industries were close to zero. Growth was observed in the primary sector mainly on the back of a surge in production of natural gas and coal. In manufacturing, positive growth rates were related either with a favorable global market environment or direct state support, while in other cases output stagnated or even fell.  According to the analysis, there are no structural prerequisites for growth in manufacturing industries.
