Beer market of Russia 2016: PET goes to draftThe beer market of Russia was warmed up by the hot summer, but the preparation for large volume PET prohibition has already impacted it negatively. The year was successful for Efes, MBC and regional producers; Carlsberg’s positions were virtually stable but AB InBev and Heineken lost a part of market share having focused on the sales profitability. The dynamics of big brands was determined by how much the companies were willing to keep the prices down or by their promotional activity. In this context the economy segment of the beer market and sales of inexpensive draft beer were increasing. The premium segment started shrinking due to license brands migrating to the mainstream segment.
Beer market of Vietnam: “Young tiger”Vietnam is one of the few big beer markets that continue to grow steadily. The beer popularity results from its low price, street consumption culture, and social motives. The outlooks of beer market as well as the Vietnamese economy inspire optimism, though the country is heavily dependent on export of goods. The state regulation can be called liberal, but the key risk for brewers is harbored in intensive rising of excise. Within TOP-4 there are two leaders, Sabeco and Heineken that grow at the fastest rates. The first company effectively employs its capacities, the second one focuses on marketing technologies. Almost 80% of the market belongs to century-old brands, yet the middle class and the youth are shifting their interest toward international premium that is growing taking share from the mainstream.

Beer market of Ukraine: big three losing weightIn 2016, fast increase of excises and resulting price spike stood in the way of the beer market stabilization. Most of competition (as well as mass sorts) moved to the economy segment of the market. The biggest losses were incurred by the leading three, especially Obolon, which again experienced pressure after reallocation of Efes market share. However, one should already speak of TOP-4. Group Oasis CIS (PPB) became a strong player and competitor to transnational companies. Besides the net sales of many regional medium breweries look rather good and 16-fold cost reduction wholesale trade license for craft brewers opens up a possibility of rapid growth in 2017.
Pentair presents BMF-18 Compact at Brau Beviale
Based on the proven Beer Membrane Filtration (BMF) technology, Pentair’s BMF-18 Compact meets the needs of breweries with an annual production capacity of up to 1,500,000 hectoliters. The BMF-18 Compact, a pre-assembled, stand-alone system, offers all the advantages of the original BMF concept at a significantly lower investment cost.
The BMF-18 Compact provides very fast implementation. Its solid design allows for assembly prior to transportation. While the system is being built and tested at the factory the brewery can prepare the necessary piping. When it is delivered to the brewery, the BMF-18 Compact is installed as a plug-and- play system and tailored to the brewery’s specific conditions. This significantly shortens the commissioning period and makes it possible to filter the first beer one week after arrival at the brewery.
Just like the original BMF, the BMF-18 Compact provides reliable operation and highest beer quality while eliminating the health and safety risks of diatomaceous earth. Beer and time loss is minimized during product switchover with the BMF-18 Compact. In addition, the system requires only limited manual work. Switching between filtration and cleaning is accomplished by simply turning two swing bends. All other process steps, such as filtration, rinsing or cleaning are fully automated.
These advantages make the BMF-18 Compact the best solution for small and mid-size breweries to filter the highest-quality beer with the lowest financial and environmental impact.
