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. ...

SABMiller expands in Nigeria to take on Heineken
Africa's biggest brewer said on Tuesday it will build its new brewery on a greenfield site at Onitsha in southeast Nigeria, to expand its presence in the country after buying small beermaker Pabod Breweries Ltd in 2009.
Nigeria's annual beer market of around 18 million hectolitres is second only to South Africa on the continent and is dominated by Heineken, with around a 70 percent market share, and Diageo's Guinness business with over 20 percent, leaving SABMiller a share of less than 5 percent.
The fast-growing Nigerian beer market has grown at an annual rate of 9 percent in the last 10 years and Heineken acquired controlling interests in five breweries in January to expand its capacity there by nearly a third .
The SABMiller new brewery will produce local brands Grand Lager and Eagle and also Castle Milk Stout and will have an annual capacity of around 500,000 hectolitre of beer and malt beverages, and be able to bottle water and other beverages.
SABMiller Africa - which is 62 percent owned by SABMiller and the rest by privately owned drinks group Castel - will own 80 percent of the new business with the Anambra state government and other Nigerian investors holding up to 20 percent.
