Summary/Abstract: The current report aims to provide insight into the nature and main characteristics of the global environmental goods and services market by studying its dynamic development and structural particularities. First, the paper discusses the difficulties encountered in the process of classifying certain goods and services as environmental and the lack of classification criteria. The intensive development of the environmental market and the factors that influence its dynamics are examined, including the implementation of the sustainable development strategy, consumer preferences for environmental goods, and national and international legislation in that sphere. Next, the author looks at the division of environmental technologies into end-of-pipe and integrated technologies depending on which stage of the production process they are used in. The report analyses the concentration of environmental market activities in different regions and touches on the relationship between degree of development of "green" industries and level of overall economic development and per capita income. The structure of international trade is outlined and the different segments of the environmental goods and services market are described and its significance for the global economy is highlighted.
