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. ...

Miller Brands Ukraine (a subsidiary of SABMiller since July 2008) achieved an impressive total volume growth of 21% in the year ended 31st March 2011. Almost half of that growth came from premium licensed brands, recently introduced by the company: Miller Genuine Draft, Velkopopovicky Kozel and Zolotaya Bochka. In this respect Miller Brands Ukraine became No. 2 among SABMiller's subsidiaries in Europe, second only to the company's UK operation which recorded 23% growth in lager volumes.
Throughout the year the Ukrainian subsidiary of SABMiller has paid a total of almost UAH 138 million in taxes, making Miller Brands Ukraine an important contributor to the country's well-being and economic development.
Igor Tikhonov, General Director of Miller Brands Ukraine, said:
"Last financial year was a good one for the company. SABMiller entered the Ukrainian market by acquiring JSC Sarmat in 2008, and since Day 1 we have been working hard on upgrading the production facilities and business processes, to meet the very demanding global quality standards of SABMiller group. We have completed the task, and to signify the considerable improvements that we have made to the original company, last year we changed the name from Sarmat to Miller Brands Ukraine. Our results in financial year 2011 prove that it wasn't a simple change of a sign-board with the company name. The improved production quality combined with efficient marketing and sales processes led to significant volume growth. I'm especially glad to note the excellent performance of our licensed brands last year. The premium segment is where SABMiller is really strong in many countries of the company's presence. This segment is also a strategic focus for Miller Brands Ukraine, the area where we see our future in this market."
