The woodworking industry is one of the most critical components of the forest sector in Ukraine and world countries. This paper aims to develop directions for ensuring the competitiveness of the woodworking industry in the post-pandemic period. The study resulted in the elaboration of the theoretical framework for identifying the main substantive determinants of industrial competitiveness in world countries through bibliometric analysis using VOSviewer v.1.6.10. The conducted cluster analysis provided for the identification of 4 clusters of scientific research dealing with issues of industrial competitiveness (Cluster 1 is focused on the formation of a competitive business strategy for the development of industrial enterprises; Cluster 2 – on the development of the export-import potential of industrial enterprises; Cluster 3 – on the identification of relationships between ensuring industrial competitiveness and globalisation processes; Cluster 4 – on the implementation of Industry 4.0 and innovative technologies). The obtained theoretical conclusions and generalisations became the basis for forming a system of indicators for assessing the competitiveness of economic activities in the country's woodworking industry. An integrated assessment of the competitiveness of the woodworking industry in Ukraine and world countries was carried out. Using cluster analysis (k-means), world countries, including Ukraine, were clustered according to the value of composite indicators for assessing the competitiveness of individual economic activities in the woodworking industry. Ukraine fell into the cluster characterised by the high competitiveness of individual economic activities in the woodworking industry. Measures were formulated to ensure the competitiveness of the Ukrainian woodworking industry in the post-pandemic period.
Key words: competitiveness / woodworking industry / a composite indicator / cluster analysis / bibliometric analysis / post-pandemic period
