The oblast is one of the industrial areas of Ukraine. Around 17% of total Ukrainian industrial production is generated here, which corresponds to one eighth of GDP . The economic core of the region is based on mining and the so-called metallurgical industry complex , which generates 40% of Ukrainian production. 100% of Ukrainian manganese ore , 81% of all Ukrainian iron ore , 19% of coal and 12% of Ukrainian nitrogen fertilizer are mined or produced here. In addition, most of the uranium is mined here in Europe . Energy producers in the region provide 12 billion kilowatt hours annually .
In addition, agriculture, which is characterized by large farms, is one of the economic factors. 1.7 million tons of grain, 618,000 tons of sunflowers, 156,000 tons of sugar beets and one million tons of fruit and vegetables were grown here every year.
Raw materials industry
40 different types of raw materials are mined here, including large iron ore deposits (mainly in the Krywbass and Dnipro ), non-ferrous metals , uranium deposits (mainly in the Krywbass). In addition, brown / hard coal is mined here, there are deposits of rare minerals such as anduoite , kaolin , rutile and zirconium .
The good economic development of heavy industry in the region is based on the significant raw material deposits and the transport links. Abundant and easily accessible deposits of iron ore , especially in the Krywbass region, and the relative proximity to the Donbass region with its rich coal deposits and the existing waterways ensured good connections to the CIS states and economic prosperity. Many metal factories were subsequently settled here, including KrywoRischStal . The Interpipe Group is also based here. The most important metallurgy combines are Severny GOK , Mittal Steel , Nico Tube , Dnijprowskij Stahlwerke and Marganez GOK
Mechanical engineering accounts for around six percent of industrial production. A gigantic industrial complex was built here in the mid-1940s. Today the oblast is the leader in mechanical engineering in the Ukraine, most recently it was involved with a little more than ten percent of the total Ukrainian production. The mechanical engineering sector in the region has primarily focused on the manufacture of electrotechnical systems, agricultural vehicles and rail technology . The largest mechanical engineering companies in the region are: Dniprowaschmasch (systems for rolling mills), Piwdenmasch (tractors, household appliances and space technology) and Prodmasch .
The region's electricity economy is mainly based on the rich deposits of brown / hard coal . The thermal power plants "Pridniprovskaya" and "Krivorischskaja" together generate 4700 megawatts of electricity. There is also an important hydroelectric power station on the Kamjansk reservoir . The region generates around 8% of the electricity produced nationwide, making it second among the regions in terms of electricity generation.
The palette ranges from paints and fertilizers to paints and tires. In Dnipro among other things, is also Dnjeproschina , Europe's largest producer of tires, home. 40% of chemical production is sold abroad.
The upswing had also hit the construction sector. There is a dynamically growing market in the region for a wide variety of construction services with a large number of competitors. With various forms of financing, more than 400,000 square meters were completed in 2006. This corresponds to an increase of 107% over the previous year.

In the oblast there is mechanical engineering, food industry, chemical industry and steel smelting. In addition, Dnipropetrovsk was a closed city as it was one of the centers of the Soviet space and armaments industry and is still for Ukraine today.
Investments from Germany represent around one third of the total foreign investments in the region and the volume of trade with Germany increased by 37% in the first nine months of 2007.

The area has historically been regularly disputed between the Russian Empire , Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire . (see also History of Ukraine ). On February 27, 1932, the oblast was finally re-created as part of an administrative reform, which in turn was formed from the Okrugs created in 1923 (Okrug Katerinoslaw) and 1926 (Okrug Dnipropetrovsk) . Until 1923 the area of today's oblast was in the Yekaterinoslav Governorate , which had existed since 1802 . However, the borders of the oblast, created in 1932, were not comparable to today's.
The area lies in the Eastern European Plain and has many steppes, the Dnepr runs through the Oblast from the northwest directly to Dnipro and then in a southerly direction to the Zaporizhia Oblast . The oblast has a continental climate and very good soils, which makes it very productive in agriculture. The oblast borders in the north on Poltava Oblast , in the northeast on Kharkiv Oblast , in the east on Donetsk Oblast , in the southeast on Zaporizhia Oblast , in the southwest on Kherson Oblast , in the west on a shorter section on Mykolaiv Oblast and in Northwest to Kirovohrad Oblast .
The population is (as of 2014) 3,292,400 and represents 5.3% of the total Ukrainian population. According to the 2001 census, the distribution of ethnic groups in Dnepropetrovsk Oblast is as shown in the table below.
