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. ...

Australia. CCA to stay in beer market
International beverage giant SABMiller made a $9.51 billion cash takeover offer for brewer Foster's in June.
Foster's rejected the offer, saying it undervalued the company.
CCA has a brewing joint venture with SABMiller, called Pacific Beverages, which competes with Foster's.
Pacific Beverages makes the Bluetongue brand and distributes products such as Peroni Nastro Azzurro, Grolsch and Pilsner in Australia and New Zealand.
SABMiller did not wish to make a joint bid with CCA, and CCA did not wish to acquire shares in Foster's.
Consequently, it was agreed that should SABMiller succeed in taking over Foster's, SABMiller would buy out CCA's half-stake in Pacific Beverages for between $305 million and $380 million and CCA would have the right to acquire some of Foster's businesses.
CCA managing director Terry Davis on Tuesday said the outcome for CCA should SABMiller succeed in its bid for Foster's would be "very, very positive".
"While it's part of the Foster's deal that we will not play in the beer space for two years in Australia, we certainly intend to re-enter the beer market," Mr Davis said.
"And in the interim we would have a significantly strengthened spirits portfolio.
"I can confirm that whatever the outcome of the SABMiller bid that CCA will continue to play a very meaningful role in Australian (alcoholic) beverages in Australia and New Zealand."
r Davis said that the sale of the stake in Pacific Beverages would render a profit of $200 million to $300 million on book value, and interest savings alone would deliver an immediate lift of two to three per cent in CCA's earnings per share.
CCA would also get the opportunity to acquire all of the Foster's spirits, ready-to-drink mixed spirits and non-alcoholic brands at prices that would immediately add to CCA's earnings per share.
"More importantly, by selling our 50 per cent share of the joint venture, our capability in alcoholic beverages does not disappear. Our sales force remains the same," Mr Davis said.
"In the four years that we have been in this space (beer), our team has demonstrated the enormous value that our large-scale sales, distribution and servicing capability can do to good brands."
