Ukrainian beer market 2018

- 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. ...

CHINA: Snow boosts China Resources Enterprise FY results
Group net sales up by 35%
Net profits up by 25%
Eyes more acquisitions
Consumer thirst for the Snow beer brand has helped China Resources Enterprise to report strong rises in net sales and profits for 2010.
The group's beer division, which operates via the CR Snow joint venture with SABMiller, reported net sales up by 14% for the 12 months to the end of December, to HKD21.5bn (US$2.7bn). Beer volumes rose by 11%, while net profits for the division increased by 27% on the previous year, to HKD685m, China Resources Enterprise (CRE) said today (24 March).
"By enhancing the product mix and fine-tuning the selling prices in certain regions, average selling prices and gross margins both increased during the year," said the firm, which owns 51% of CR Snow, versus SABMiller's 49% stake. It claims that CR Snow is China's largest brewer, with a volume share of 21%.
The strong performance helped CRE to report a 35% increase in net sales for the 12 months, to HK86.7bn. Group net profits increased by a quarter on 2009, to almost HK3.1bn.
In addition to beer, CRE also reported strong growth in its soft drinks business, which recently agreed a joint-venture with Japan's Kirin Holdings. In 2010, CRE's soft drinks sales rose by 31% to HK2.1bn, while net profits increased by 7.6% to HK155m.
"Its flagship purified water brand, 'C'estbon', continued to enjoy a leading market position in Guangdong, and achieved strong sales growth in Hunan and Sichuan due to enhanced marketing campaigns and distribution channel management," said the group.
CRE also reported net sales rises of 11.6% and 51% in its food and retail divisions respectively. During the year, it opened a wine retail chain named 'Voi_la!'.
"Looking ahead, we expect to see a robust retail market environment in China," said CRE's chairman, Qiao Shibo. "We will continue to actively look for opportunities to develop and strengthen our core businesses through acquisitions and organic growth."
