Ukrainian beer market 2018

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. ...

Carlsberg says to own 30 pct of new China venture
* It will own 30 pct of new J/V with Chinese partners
* New company will operate 12 breweries in China (Adds details, quote, share price)
Danish brewer Carlsberg (CARLb.CO) said on Monday it would own 30 percent of a new joint venture to be formed by Carlsberg, its Chongqing Brewery unit and Chongqing Light Textile Holding to boost its China business.
Carlsberg became the biggest shareholder in Shanghai-listed Chongqing Brewery (CBC) in 2010 with a stake of nearly 30 percent and expressed interest in expanding the Chinese operations in cooperation with CBC's other main owner, Chongqing Light Textile Holding (CLT).
"CBC will own 51.42 percent of the joint venture, CLT 18.58 percent and the Carlsberg Group will own 30 percent," Carlsberg A/S said in a statement.
The venture, Chongqing Xinghui Investment Co., Ltd, will operate 12 breweries in China located in the provinces of Chongqing, Sichuan, Guangxi, Guizhou and Hunan, Carlsberg said.
CBC will contribute its ownership of five breweries, CLT will contribute seven breweries and the Carlsberg Group will make a cash contribution of about 160 million Danish crowns ($30.90 million).
"The transaction is conditional upon a number of steps and approvals by authorities and minority shareholders," Carlsberg, the world's fourth biggest brewer, said.
Shares in Carlsberg were little changed, up 0.1 percent at 1440 GMT on a slightly soft Copenhagen bourse .
