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. ...

Asahi Breweries 1Q Group Net Profit Y3.64 Billion Vs Y4.00 Million
The Tokyo-based beer maker reported a group net profit of Y3.64 billion for the three months, compared with a profit of Y4 million in the same period a year earlier.
The company said it booked a special loss of Y6.9 billion related to damages to its brewery at Fukushima in northern Japan among other facilities, which were hit by the March 11 disaster. The company aims to resume operations at the brewery by summer.
The lost production at the plant prompted Asahi to concentrate on its mainline products, thus pushing back the planned launch of some of new products. That led to fewer outlays on sales promotion, helping to underpin its bottom line.
Beer demand is usually weak during the January-March period, and Japanese breweries spend heavily to promote new products ahead of the peak summer season. That often causes relatively low profits, and sometimes losses, at brewers.
Asahi registered sales of Y280.22 billion, down 1.4% from Y284.12 billion in the same period a year earlier, while it had an operating profit of Y7.41 billion, better than a loss of Y2.46 billion a year earlier.
For the full business year ending Dec. 31, the company left its profit and sales outlook unchanged. It continues to forecast a net profit of Y57 billion, an operating profit of Y107 billion and sales of Y1.490 trillion.
The company's earnings are based on Japanese accounting standards.
