Purpose. To determine factors influencing the development process of a mining and metallurgical enterprise and trends of the market environment and to substantiate different development strategies for mining companies.

Methodology. The basic procedure for the analysis of changes in the market environment is estimation of the complex indicator of the competitive status of an enterprise in strategic areas of management. In the research we used the methods of economic analysis, mathematical statistics and forecasting, logical analysis, and others.

Findings. We have estimated the titanium-zirconium materials market potential and the potential capacity of global production of titanium dioxide (TiO2) according to actual production capacity of world mining companies, including Ukrainian companies, and determined the limits of expansion of world market capacity.

Originality. Trends in the market of titanium dioxide and titanium-zirconium materials have been determined and according to them the prerequisites for strategic development of the mining enterprise have been presented.

Practical value. We have analyzed strengths and weaknesses of the subdivision of ZAO “Krymskiy Titan”, “Vilnohirsk Mining and Metallurgical Plant” and its competitiveness at the titanium-zirconium materials market environment.
