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. ...
Zimbabwe. Delta invests $100m in two years
Dube claimed Delta now controlled 96% of the beer market in the country.
Speaking at the official commissioning of a $14,5 million new beer and lager packaging line in Bulawayo on Friday, Dube said, “This is Delta’s third major packaging line in the past 24 months.”
“In addition to these we have also invested shake-shake plants at a number of our factories around the country,” said Dube.
“By March this year Delta will have spent a total of $129 million since March 2009. These critical investments take Delta to a new level of competitiveness. We are determined to meet tomorrow’s challenges from a position of strength.” In December 2009, Delta commissioned a $12,5 million plant in Harare.
In July 2010, the company commissioned a new packaging Polyethylene Terephthatlate Packing (PET) line at its Granite site in Harare.
The packaging line was commissioned by the Acting president, John Nkomo.
Also in attendance at the ceremony were the Deputy Prime Minister Thokozani Khuphe, the Industry and Commerce minister Welshman Ncube, Bulawayo governor Cain Matema, Parastatals and State Enterprises minister Gorden Moyo and Water Resources Development and Management minister Samuel Sipepa Nkomo. Dube said what underpinned his company’s growth was the recovery of the country’s economy.
“Underpinning this growth in our turnaround is stability in the macro economic factors.
“Although companies continue to face challenges, the Zimbabwean economy is on a recovery path and we hope the momentum will continue. The return of economic stability has provided Delta with the opportunity to recapitalise its businesses. As a company, we take a long-term view and are not deterred by short-term difficulties,” he said.
Dube said Delta will in March this year commission a $1,4 million carbon dioxide plant which will boost the production of soft drinks.
The company, he said, will also commission a boiler at its Belmont site.
“This is a testimony to our commitment to the city of Bulawayo and the southern region of the country,” he said.
On Wednesday last week Delta made a donation of 300 bins, 200 trolleys, 100 uniforms and 50 can collection cages to the Bulawayo city council.
The company also handed over the resurfaced Leamington Road in Belmont that it repaired at a cost of $25 000.
