Beer market of Kazakhstan acquired both traits of East European countries and South Eastern Asia taking a transitional position between them by many criteria and consumption style. Yet there is a positive trend in beer production which differs Kazakhstan from most of the neighboring countries. The market has remained consolidated in the hands of two international players because of its small size. However, it faces dynamic processes such as fast growth of draft beer sales, up and downs of regional companies and Carlsberg Group’s ultimate expansion. Excessive mainstream segment has declined over the recent years, yet, Zhigulevskoe and national brands with regional links have yielded their positions to a range of new products. In our review special attention was paid to regional analysis of the markets. In 14 regions of Kazakhstan we compared the companies’ positions, the market price segmentation and DIOT channel development.

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. ...
AB InBev to reap benefits of price hikes in Q2
* Core Q2 profits expected to rise 11 percent
* Beer volumes seen flat, after Q1 drop
Anheuser-Busch InBev , the world's largest brewer, is set to show a 11 percent rise in second-quarter profits on Thursday as price rises offset weak markets for beer in its two key markets of Brazil and the United States.
The maker of Stella Artois and Budweiser sells roughly three-quarters of its beer in the Americas region after its takeover of Anheuser-Busch in 2008, and around 40 percent of its beer sales come from Latin America.
Worries over rising unemployment and stagnant wages pushed U.S. consumer sentiment to a two-year low in July, while in Brazil consumer sentiment also reached a two-year low in June due to concerns over inflation.
MillerCoors, the second-largest brewer in the U.S. owned by SABMiller and Molson Coors , said earlier this month that it managed to increase profits in the second quarter by raising beer prices and cutting costs in the face of a tough market.
A Reuters poll of 15 banks and brokerages has forecast that AB InBev's second-quarter core EBITDA profit (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation) would rise by 11 percent to $3.7 billion.
They also forecast that beer volumes would remain flat at 101 million hectolitres. In the first quarter, AB InBev suffered its first drop in beer sales for a year and a half.
SABMiller, the world's second-largest brewer, reported its April-June underlying beer volumes rose 5 percent helped by growth in emerging markets, while the third-largest Heineken reports H1 results on Aug. 24, and fourth-largest Carlsberg (CARLb.CO) a week earlier on Aug. 17.
