Russia: Positions of Brewing Companies

The review contains an analysis of interim performance of brewers in the first half of 2019. There are rather dynamic changes behind a modest industry growth. Baltika is again experiencing a stage of volumes and market share slid due to competition with AB InBev Efes. Because of the price competition and presence expansion in the modern trade company #2. has come close to the leading position. At the same time sales of Heineken Russia have continued growing which makes the premium part of the portfolio heavier. The market premiumization trend had been also confirmed by import brands. MBC and Zavod Trekhsosenskiy have been the most successful among federal market players. The market share of independent regional brewers and Ochakovo have continued falling as they are being squeezed out by the market leaders at their competitive fields.

Ukrainian beer market 2019: companies and brands

In 2019 beer production and market have been still fluctuating about zero point. However, the past season was successful for brewers judging by the sales profitability. The price mix has improved due to rapid general market premiumization, as well as its particular aspect, the growth of import beer sales. By the season end AB InBev Efes improved its positions considerably. It turned out that consumers had not forgot Efes brands that had to leave the market, but started to recover rapidly. Against the stagnating market that meant sales decline of other companies, in the first place Carlsberg Group that most of all beneficiated from Efes exiting the market. PPB turned out to be stable to branding activity of its competitor and Obolon kept the same volumes and at the moment it is the absolute leader of the economy segment. The share growth of independent producers took place thanks to leading craft breweries, that so far do not have a big market weight, but they are rapidly gaining it.

Brewing industry in Kazakhstan 2019

During the first half of 2019, the majority of Kazakh brewers made their contribution into positive dynamics. Yet it was companies of the lower division, not the two transnational leaders that raised their production and sales. The shares of draft beer and aluminum can which is rapidly squeezing glass bottle out of the market, have been growing. The price segmentation has remained stable despite the substantial rise of retail prices and fluctuations of brand market shares, while the borders between segments have become blurred. The main events in the industry have been: the announced revision of the beer excise policy, launch of BeerKhan brand in the strong beer segment, and most important – purchasing assets of Shymkentbeer by Arasan.

Grain values drop in latest CWB PRO for 2011-12

The CWB on Thursday released its latest Pool Return Outlook (PRO) for the 2011-12 crop year. Wheat values have declined from last month’s PRO between $22 and $39 per tonne, depending on class, grade and protein level. Durum values are down by $22 per tonne since the June PRO. Malting barley values decreased by $11 per tonne and Pool A feed barley is down $13 per tonne. Malting barley trade is forecast similar to last year, with increased demand for early delivery periods due to tight supplies coming into 2011-12. Prices in North America will be sheltered to some extent from lower international prices because a smaller U.S. barley crop will provide a higher-priced market for malting barley trade this year. China, the largest importer of barley, is forecast to have strong barley demand in 2011-12. However, China is expected to defer some demand until purchases can be made from Australia and Argentina, the CWB said.

Feed barley

The barley price structure in 2011-12 will be set by exports available from the Black Sea region. Ukraine, the largest of the Black Sea exporters, will help cover demand from the Middle East this year, but is forecast to increase exports by only 800 thousand tonnes. Tight supplies in Europe and Canada will help prices remain firm until January, when new-crop barley supplies become available from Australia and Argentina, which are both forecast to have large barley crops. The world’s largest feed buyer, Saudi Arabia, is showing signs of tight barley supplies and is forecast to increase its feed barley demand moving into 2011-12. If this demand is realized it will help mitigate the downside price impact. Like the other return projections this month, barley is being impacted by the strong Canadian dollar.

Designated barley

The weather market in Europe has subsided and prices have made their inevitable corrections over the last month and a half. Prices decreased by $50 to $70 U.S. before levelling off when end users stepped in to take further coverage. Lower European production estimates and reduced planted area in North America have decreased the potential supply of malting-quality barley, keeping prices volatile over the last month. Now that harvest has begun in the Northern Hemisphere, the focus will switch from overall production size to quality results. New-crop malting barley supplies are highly dependent on harvest weather, and prices will remain volatile as we move into August and September. Prices are expected to remain firm until January when production in Australia and Argentina is expected to cause a decrease in values. The overall supply of malting-quality barley from these two countries is expected to be large, as Southern Hemisphere production typically has less quality risk than in the Northern Hemisphere.
