Beer market of Kazakhstan acquired both traits of East European countries and South Eastern Asia taking a transitional position between them by many criteria and consumption style. Yet there is a positive trend in beer production which differs Kazakhstan from most of the neighboring countries. The market has remained consolidated in the hands of two international players because of its small size. However, it faces dynamic processes such as fast growth of draft beer sales, up and downs of regional companies and Carlsberg Group’s ultimate expansion. Excessive mainstream segment has declined over the recent years, yet, Zhigulevskoe and national brands with regional links have yielded their positions to a range of new products. In our review special attention was paid to regional analysis of the markets. In 14 regions of Kazakhstan we compared the companies’ positions, the market price segmentation and DIOT channel development. Besides we have compared the beer market of Kazakhstan to neighboring countries. ...

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. ...
Molson Coors 4Q net declines as it sells less beer
The Denver-based brewer reported Thursday that it earned $109.8 million, or 58 cents per share, for the quarter that ended Dec. 25. That's down from $222.1 million, or $1.19 per share, a year earlier. Adjusted earnings amounted to 66 cents a share.
Last year's quarter was boosted by an unusually high tax rate, the company said.
Revenue excluding excise taxes rose 1.7 percent to $835.1 million because of higher prices.
The results fell short of analysts' forecasts. They were looking for earnings of 69 cents per share on revenue of $837.4 million.
The Denver company raised prices in the downturn to protect profit margins, even if the amount of beer sold suffered as a result. Before the fourth quarter, cost-cutting had been helping its profits rise.
Molson Coors says it sold 1.9 percent less beer globally. The United Kingdom was particularly weak, with beer sold falling 4.9 percent.
To offset weakness in more established markets, Molson Coors is increasingly trying to expand in emerging markets such as China. The aim is to woo new drinkers to its Coors Light brand. The unit that includes sales outside the U.S., Canada and Britain saw volume rise 55 percent, though it is a still a tiny portion of Molson Coors' business.
Molson's U.S. joint venture with SABMiller, Miller Coors, performed better. The venture's net income rose 41 percent to $144.2 million as costs fell and prices for beer rose.
