Ukrainian beer market 2018
- Better than yesterday
- Performance by value
- Positions of Ukrainian brewers
The beer market dynamics in Russia is approaching zero, yet major brewers are divided into those who developed considerably in 2017 and those who considerably reduced their volumes. For instance, company Efes has managed to substantially extend their sales due to restrained pricing policy and activity in the modern trade. Heineken has also demonstrated an excellent performance promoted by significant increase of advertisement budgets launching a non-alcohol sort of the title brand and unusual activity in the economy market segment. Carlsberg and AB InBev have been focusing on margins and lost a market share of their inexpensive brands. Serious dependence on PET package and mass enthusiasm about Zhigulevskoe have negatively impacted the most of big regional brewers, that have been for the first time pressed by the leaders in the key sales channels, especially in Volga and Central regions. In the small business there has been a noticeable slowdown in appearing of new restaurant breweries, yet the number of craft breweries has been growing rapidly. In 2018, the beer market is likely to grow a little, while the share of AB InBev Efes may decrease due to the integration. ...

UK: Beer sales continue to fall in 2010 — figures
Beer sales fell by 4% in volume for the 12 months to the end of December, as a 7.5% drop in the pub sector overshadowed a slight increase of 0.6% in the off-trade, the British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA) said today (25 January).
The figures underline the pressure on the UK beer sector, exacerbated by pub closures, and follow declines of 4% and 5.5% in beer volumes in 2009 and 2008 respectively. In 2010, a record drop in demand in the third quarter and poor weather before Christmas helped to offset a boost from the FIFA World Cup in June.
BBPA chief executive Brigid Simmonds used the figures to argue that there is no scope for further tax rises on beer. "Beer has always been a rich revenue source for Government – but they may now be cooking the golden goose," she said.
"The Government should abandon plans for above inflation hikes in beer tax in the Budget, as further rises are simply unsustainable," she added.
Duty tax on beer has risen by around 25% in the last two-and-a-half years and duty on beer, wine and spirits is set to increase by another 2% above inflation in the Government's 2011 Budget, to be announced in March. Pub beer sales have slumped by a fifth in the last three years, the BBPA said.
