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.

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. ...
Philippines’ San Miguel eyes share offer for brewery
* Plans to put up breweries in Laos, Cambodia
* To open 4 additional bottling plants in Philippines (Recasts, adds comments after stockholders' meeting)
MANILA, May 31 (Reuters) - Philippine conglomerate San Miguel Corp said on Tuesday it was talking to Japanese partner Kirin Holdings about a secondary share offer for their San Miguel Brewery unit this year to increase its public float.
San Miguel Brewery is the Philippines' most valuable listed firm. San Miguel Corp owns 51 percent and Kirin owns 48.4 percent, leaving a free float of 0.6 percent, according to stock exchange data.
The Philippine Stock Exchange has ordered listed firms to increase public ownership to 10 percent.
"We will do it just to comply with the PSE requirement," San Miguel president Ramon Ang told reporters before the brewer's annual shareholders' meeting. He said the share offer was planned for this year, but did not indicate a size.
Speaking after the meeting, Ang said San Miguel was in talks with Kirin about the share sale plan.
"There is a possibility that we will put together our shares," he said.
Ang also said San Miguel Brewery was planning to build breweries in Laos and Cambodia, each with a capacity of about 500,000 hectolitres, as it seeks new markets.
San Miguel Brewery, which makes nine out of every 10 beers sold in the Philippines, also plans to put up four bottling plants in its home market at a cost about $100 million, as it seeks to expand bottling capacity by around 30 percent.
The additional plants, each with a capacity of 30 million cases a year, will help reduce logistics cost, Ang said.
Earlier this month, he said San Miguel Corp was considering selling stakes in its power and food subsidiaries as it seeks to raise more funds to invest in new ventures, and to meet the minimum public float requirement. [ID:nL3E7GD1K0]

San Miguel has dominated the local food and beverage industry for decades, but recently has added power, mining, telecommunications, oil refining and infrastructure to its stable of businesses. (Reporting by Erik dela Cruz; Editing by Rosemarie Francisco)
