To ensure competitiveness in world markets in the context of deepening globalization processes, Ukraine needs to adjust its own raw material base, which will qualitatively change the structure of Ukrainian exports from raw materials to goods with a high share of value added. The purpose of the article is to assess the development capacity of chemical, textile, agro-processing, and woodworking industries of Ukraine on the basis of import substitution and export orientation and substantiation of organizational and economic forms of its practical implementation. The author’s interpretation of the term “capacity of industrial system development” is offered. Based on the results of the technological profile analysis, the level of capacity utilization and performance indicators of the largest chemical enterprises of Ukraine, and strategic guidelines for the development of promising chemical industries are substantiated and organizational and economic forms of realizing their capacity are suggested, in particular in the Western region. Proposals for ensuring competitive conditions for participants in the domestic market of light industry products are provided, the need for simplified regulatory procedures and investment incentives to ensure the development of domestic light industry enterprises is substantiated. An organizational mechanism for restoring the raw material base of textile and other industries is developed. The regions of Ukraine are grouped according to the capacity of timber harvesting and industrial processing. The perspective directions of development of the woodworking industry in the Western region (in the context of productions) are defined and the basic strategies of their realization focused on the internal and external markets of production are outlined. The organizational forms of realization of the development capacity of agro-processing productions in Ukraine and mechanisms of their institutional support are offered.
