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. ...
“Catalogue of Russian Beer Producers 2018” includes 1070 businesses ranging from large subsidiaries of international companies to rather small restaurant and craft microbreweries.The catalogue includes 32 large breweries, 75 regional breweries, 693 industrial mini- and microbreweries as well as 270 restaurant breweries. ...
More British breweries than since the Blitz
The pressure group’s Simon Reed told FoodManufacture.com: “100 new breweries opened only last year. We believe the total could reach 1000 within the next year to 18 months.”
Factors behind the boost for British breweries are: Their higher profile since the closure of Young's Brewery two years ago, heightened awareness of food and drink provenance and an influx of innovative people into the brewing industry, said Reed.
There has also been a 40% increase in the number of drinkers trying real ale for the first time, according to CAMRA.
Meanwhile, the first pints in CAMRA’s Great British Beer Festival will be pulled at Earls Court in London tomorrow (Wednesday, August 3.) Britain’s biggest beer festival is expected to attract 65,000 thirsty visitors over the five-day event.
Colin Valentine, CAMRA national chairman said: “There are promising times ahead for the industry when a new era of discerning consumers are demanding quality products that are locally produced and represent good value for money.
"The fact many brewers in the current climate are reporting record like-for-like sales increases shows this renewed interest is not about to end, and the Great British Beer Festival is the showcase for the present growth of the industry.”
