- 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.

Suntory seeks to boost sales in China to Y100 bil
President Nobutada Saji said: ‘‘Products, even if priced somewhat high, sell well in China as a considerable number of people earn more than 100 million yen in annual income there."
‘‘Wines and whiskies have good chances'' in China, Saji said. ‘‘We may well bring water and health foods from Japan.'‘
While Suntory has no plan to take over other businesses at present, Chinese companies may become attractive merger and acquisition targets after they have achieved growth, Saji said.
In Japan, Suntory will seek to raise its share of the market for beer and beer-like beverages to 20% from the current 13% by promoting so-called third-category beer, he said.
Saji denied Suntory intends to go public for now. But ‘‘we will consider it if we need to raise capital,'' he added.
