According to the data of 2018–2019, the Russian industry is fairly equipped with production capacities. Over 90% of manufacturers have the required production capacities (or in some cases even excessive ones in terms of the expected demand). The shortage is experienced by maximum 10% of industrial enterprises.

Key words: industry, production capacities, demand forecast, output forecast, business surveys, investment preferences.
