10+1 trends of Russian beer market 2015-2017Despite of the moderately negative prognoses for 2017, the beer market can be stabilized soon. Yet the years of the negative dynamics have resulted in marketing being limited just to “optimization” and the art of balancing between price and volumes. Bigger supermarkets share means stronger trade marketing. These processes are connected to the majority of the described trends. At the same time, the federal brands inflation leads to searching for new tastes, sales channels and contact formats that expand the product range and diversify the beer market, but do not imply a substantial volume increase. Let us enumerate and further discuss the ten trends of the beer market we can see in 2015-2017 as well as the major event of 2017.
Beer market of Ukraine 2017In the first half of 2017, the Ukrainian beer market goes on decreasing slowly. Yet, the companies manage to compensate their lost volumes by raising prices and improving the sales structures. This results in the mid price market segment reduction while the sales of premium brands are rising. These processes are connected to position strengthening of companies Carlsberg Group and Oasis and the market share reduction of Obolon. Most of the novelties by the market leaders belong to craft or hard lemon categories.
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.
With its GEA EcoServe product line GEA is offering a tailor-made service for optimum plate heat exchanger availability
The costs for servicing and maintenance of machinery and equipment are regularly not weighted anything close to the initial capital investment, but these follow-up costs are of enormous importance. In Germany they make up almost six per cent of the gross national product and are therefore approximately at the average level of gross capital investments in the German commercial sector. And these figures do not include any costs for downtimes and equipment failure, which experts estimate to be possibly three to four times higher than the actual maintenance costs. Success in commercial manufacturing depends quite considerably on the availability of the production equipment.
The GEA EcoServe product line combines a range of top-class services in a single system to ensure optimum management of lifecycle costs. Preventative maintenance with the goal of avoiding plant downtimes is a central feature. As with the procurement of high quality spare parts for all makes or in training courses GEA customers benefit from the know-how and experience of a manufacturer – and also from the fact that experience from the service operations flows directly into design and production.
The GEA EcoServe service provided by GEA PHE Systems stands for tailor-made customised solutions. The objective is always to achieve individual service agreements, with parameters exactly matched to the specific requirements of the customer and agree these in binding
contracts. As industrial insurers generally demand that the plant operator uses high quality spare parts, all GEA components are available quickly and at all times, are subject to stringent quality testing, are certified and ensure compliance with your manufacturer warranty.
