The paper deals with a study of cluster-type development of regional economic systems. Positive influence on the social and economic growth of a number of regions in the Russian Federation has been evaluated owing to generation of territorial cluster-type formations. The paper includes findings of an investigation into theoretical nature of «cluster» as an economic category. As an example of positive influence of the clusterization strategy, the project of formation and development of the regional cluster of Nizhnekamsk Municipal District of the Republic of Tatarstan has been offered and validated from economic effectiveness point of view. For the purpose of the project feasibility validation, a methodological approach has been specifically designed for evaluation of economic potential of the city-forming enterprises. During approbation, the above mentioned approach brought to the front a number of intensive growth prospects for the enterprises in question in the course of integration, and, consequently, viability of the regional cluster became worthy of notice. At the same time, the project in question was rationalized from economic effectiveness perspective. For this line of the investigation a special methodological approach has been developed so as to allow predicting a level of synergetic effect of the clusterization.
