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. ...
Kirin Holdings 1Q Group Net Loss Y2.11 Billion Vs Y6.16 Billion Profit Year Earlier
The Tokyo-based company, which holds a 100% stake in Australia's Lion Nathan Ltd. (LNN.AU) and 48% of the Philippines San Miguel Brewery Inc., posted a net loss of Y2.11 billion, compared with a year-earlier profit of Y6.16 billion.
Kirin halted operations at its Sendai brewery, which was hit by the massive March 11 earthquake and tsunami, leading the company to book a special loss of Y5.1 billion for the first quarter for related damage.
The disaster damaged four of 15 large beer storage tanks at the plant and flooded the brewery's packaging facilities and warehouse. But key parts of the brewery, including much of the equipment, weren't damaged, thus Kirin aims to restart operations at the plant by the autumn.
Sales climbed 10.4% to Y488.92 billion from Y442.77 billion. The steep gain is ascribed to strength in its drug-making unit Kyowa Hakko Kirin Co. In addition, sales got a one-off boost from a change in the business year of its Australia-based National Foods Ltd.
Kirin's quarterly operating profit gained 38% to Y32.99 billion, buoyed by strong sales and cost reductions.
For the full fiscal year, Kirin kept unchanged the earnings outlook it released earlier this year. The company continues to predict a group net profit of Y58 billion, an operating profit of Y152 billion and sales of Y2.140 trillion.
But the company said that as it is hard to gauge the impact of power outages on economic activity and the prospects of uncertain consumer sentiment, these debilitating effects have not been factored into the earnings outlook. Kirin added that it may release an outlook revision if necessary, after mapping out the impact of the quake.
Overall beer shipments in March for Japan's five top brewers including Kirin plunged 10.9% from a year earlier, their first double-digit decline in 14 months, due to lost output at quake-damaged breweries, according to beer shipment data by the companies.
Kirin's earnings are based on Japanese accounting standards.
