Defining the industrial dynamics is needed to identify the important prerequisites that support the achievement of a sustainable industrial and economic growth. The industrial dynamics could be used as an instrument to analyze future economic behavior. In the paper we step on the basis of existing state of the art. In section one the methodology is presented: designed and used industrial dynamic function and its components. Section 2 focuses on one of the traditional industrial sectors in Bulgaria - Food and beverage production, its state and key characteristics. In Section 3 the implementation of the industrial dynamic function is illustrated to forecast the future development of the Food and Beverage production sector in Bulgaria. On the basis of dataset perspectives for future development of food and beverage development in Bulgaria are analyzed and recommendations for concrete measures are provided.
