Russia: Positions of Brewing CompaniesThe review contains an analysis of interim performance of brewers in the first half of 2019. There are rather dynamic changes behind a modest industry growth. Baltika is again experiencing a stage of volumes and market share slid due to competition with AB InBev Efes. Because of the price competition and presence expansion in the modern trade company #2. has come close to the leading position.

Ukrainian beer market 2019: companies and brandsIn 2019 beer production and market have been still fluctuating about zero point. However, the past season was successful for brewers judging by the sales profitability. The price mix has improved due to rapid general market premiumization, as well as its particular aspect, the growth of import beer sales. By the season end AB InBev Efes improved its positions considerably. It turned out that consumers had not forgot Efes brands that had to leave the market, but started to recover rapidly. Against the stagnating market that meant sales decline of other companies, in the first place Carlsberg Group that most of all beneficiated from Efes exiting the market. PPB turned out to be stable to branding activity of its competitor and Obolon kept the same volumes and at the moment it is the absolute leader of the economy segment.

Brewing industry in Kazakhstan 2019During the first half of 2019, the majority of Kazakh brewers made their contribution into positive dynamics. Yet it was companies of the lower division, not the two transnational leaders that raised their production and sales.

The price segmentation has remained stable despite the substantial rise of retail prices and fluctuations of brand market shares, while the borders between segments have become blurred. The main events in the industry have been: the announced revision of the beer excise policy, launch of BeerKhan brand in the strong beer segment, and most important – purchasing assets of Shymkentbeer by Arasan.

The range has got wider, the import and small segments are growing, namely craft beer, alcohol-free beer and special flavor beer.

To a big extent brewers’ performance was connected to their ability to reach agreement with networks, sacrifice their margin and enter new markets.

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.
