Vogošća greatly prospered during the 1980s, as part of Sarajevo’s great boom in the latter half of the 20th century. It grew to prominence in large part due to its automobile manufacturing industry, having deals with German and Swedish companies, including Volkswagen Group. By the late 1980s, it was the second most industrious and productive municipality in former Yugoslavia.
Vogošća was heavily damaged during the exodus of the Serbs who controlled that territory during the war. The Dayton Agreement provided Vogošća to be a part of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Today, Vogošća is rebuilding and its industries are on the rebound thanks to aid and funds.
