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 To Unload Stake In China’s Hangzhou Beer To Local Brewer
The Japanese brewer will hand over the shares, which are held by a Hong Kong subsidiary, to joint venture partner China Resources Snow Breweries (China) Investment Ltd. It will also sell its stake in Hangzhou Beer's production subsidiary, Zhejiang Xihu Beer Asahi Co., to the Beijing-based brewer.
The total value of the sale is 300 million yuan, or roughly 3.7 billion yen. The transfer of shares is expected to be completed by the end of September.
Asahi invested in Hangzhou Beer in 1994 to bolster its Chinese operations. China Resources Snow Breweries took a 45% interest in the firm last November by buying stock through a public bidding process.
Talks were then held toward creating a three-way partnership between Asahi, China Resources Snow Breweries and Tsingtao Brewery Co. -- a rival of China Resources Snow Breweries that is 20%-owned by Asahi. However, these negotiations apparently fell through.
In a statement, Asahi said it is selling off the Hangzhou Beer shares because "continuing the current management amid an unstable shareholder situation would lead to a decline in corporate value."
In addition to its stake in Tsingtao Brewery, Asahi has four beer-making facilities in the Chinese cities of Beijing, Yantai, Shenzhen and Hangzhou. By withdrawing from management of Hangzhou Beer, Asahi will lose sales volume equivalent to slightly more than 10% of the total for its four Chinese facilities.
