The war in Ukraine has had a significant impact on the country’s economy, including logistics. However, despite the difficulties, Ukrainian companies continue to import necessary products and goods.
Expected import trends in 2024
According to analysts, import to Ukraine will continue to grow in 2024, but at a slower pace than in previous years. This is due to the ongoing war in Ukraine, which continues to have a negative impact on the country’s economy.
However, it is expected that the following products and goods will be in high demand in Ukraine in 2024:
- Food and beverages. The war in Ukraine has led to a reduction in food production in the country, resulting in an increase in the import of food and beverages from other countries.
- Industrial goods. Ukraine is a major producer of industrial products, but production volumes have fallen compared to pre-war levels.
- Vehicles. The war in Ukraine has damaged and destroyed a significant portion of the country’s automotive and railway transport.
- Construction materials. Ukraine has a large amount of destroyed infrastructure that requires reconstruction, resulting in a high demand for construction materials.
- Medicines and medical equipment. There has been an increased demand for medicines and medical equipment, leading to an increase in the import of these products from other countries.
Here are some specific examples of the imported products and goods that are in high demand in Ukraine in 2024:
- Food: wheat, corn, vegetable oil, sugar, coffee, tea, meat, fish, vegetables, fruits.
- Industrial goods: metals and metal products, machinery and equipment, chemicals, textiles, clothing, footwear, building materials.
- Vehicles: cars, buses, railway wagons, construction machinery.
- Construction materials: cement, bricks, metal products, glass, timber.
