Welding as the main technology of joining materials is an intrinsic component of the industrial sector of economy, integrated into production process of basic industries. The paper presents systematized economic-statistical information about the state-of-the art and development of welding electrode market in Ukraine, the indices of their production volumes and export-import operations. Capacities of Ukrainian manufacturers allow both satisfying the demand for welding electrodes in the internal market, and supplying their products to the external market. 12 Ref., 3 Tables, 11 Figures
Keywords: welding, welding production, welding electrodes, technologies, market state, prospects
