The 24th elcomUkraine in 2019 on the upswing

Ukraine’s electrical imports up 21.7% annually between 2015 and 2017 to 4.616 billion euro in 2017

After three years of decline from 2013 to 2015 Ukraine’s electrical imports heavily increased by 21.7 annually between 2015 and 2017 to 4.616 billion euro in 2017. (ZVEI) And this trend is expected to continue in 2018 and onwards. 

No wonder that traditional elcom exhibitors such as ABB, Phoenix Contact, Schneider Electric and Siemens report double-digit growth for 2018 and expect the same for 2019.

Ukraine’s electro-technology imports mainly consist of automation technology, power and electrical engineering technology, batteries, installation equipment, cables and wires, electronic components and lighting technology. China, Hungary and Germany are the most important supplier countries.

Ukraine, however, is not only an important buyer but also a very important producer and seller of electrical technology. Ukraine’s electrical exports to the world over increased by 14.2% annually between 2015 and 2017, reaching 2.391 billion euro in 2017.

National pavilions from China, Germany and Turkey.

China’s energy and electrical engineering exports to Ukraine increased by 21.4% annually between 2015 and 2017 to 1.112 billion euro in 2017. 

Also the figures of German electrical exports to Ukraine mark a clear upward trend. They increased from 386 million euro in 2015 and 409 million euro in 2016 to 506 million euro in 2017. Up 14.5% annually between 2015 and 2017. That is why Germany will again leave a heavy footprint at elcomUkraine 2019. The German Pavilion is presented by the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy in cooperation with the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry (AUMA) and supported by ZVEI - the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association.

Turkey and Ukraine have had strong ties with each other for a long time. The special relations between the two countries extend just as much to tourism as to the exchange of goods. The presence of Turkish companies at elcomUkraine is particularly strong. This is not surprising, as Turkey‘s electrical exports to Ukraine amounted to 60.1 million euros in 2017. And they have been showing a continuous upward trend year after year since 2015.

Review elcomUkraine 2018: Excellent platform for decision-makers from all sectors of the Central and Eastern European industry

elcomUkraine 2018 once again delivered as an excellent platform for decision-makers from all sectors of the Central and Eastern European industry, public institutions and the services industry to get in contact with cutting-edge solutions first, and to meet new suppliers.

A major event bringing the two sides of supply and demand together for business. An integral part of elcomUkraine has also been its 
action-packed program of professional conferences, presentations and seminars. The target of elcomUkraine has always been to support the Ukrainian industry and Ukrainian SMEs to improve their production facilities and to challenge the Ukrainian government on its way to modernize public infrastructure and introduce energy efficiency in all walks of life.

It goes without saying that the energy and industrial sector is one of the largest segments of the Ukrainian industry. The sector generates hundreds of thousands of jobs in the country and employs a considerable amount of the Ukrainian workforce.
