The market of import beer in Russia: review and databasesThe market of import beer is rapidly growing and changing. But while in the past years it was growing due to brands variety, in 2019 major and affordable brands from TOP-10 were developing actively. It seems that the fact of a brand origin from far abroad counties, even if it is not well known but has moderate price and good distribution provides for million liters of sales in the territory of Russia. Among distributors AB InBev Efes was far behind, yet the role of Baltika and suppliers of the second row got more important. The boom of German brands was followed by stagnation of import from other traditional regions (and Belarus) instead the supplies from Mexico, Lithuania and Asian countries grew considerably.
Foster’s loses ground to rivals in packaged beer segment
As Foster's robustly defended its reporting practices before the Takeovers Panel yesterday, figures from market researcher Neilsen showed that CUB's share of the local packaged beer market declined over the three months to the end of July.
The brewer had 47.8 per cent of packaged beer sales by volume for the quarter, compared with 49.9 per cent for the same period a year earlier.
The decline was compounded by the fact that overall beer market volume fell by 6.8 per cent in the 12 months to the end of July, with the biggest declines in Carlton United Brewers' VB, Pure Blonde and Carlton Cold brands.
At the same time, rival brewer Lion increased its market share from 41.9 per cent to 43.1 per cent.

Packaged beer accounts for about 70 per cent of the market, so SABMiller is likely to seize on the latest Neilsen data to strengthen the case for its bid.
Foster's, for its part, said at its annual result last month that its "total" market share had stabilised in the 2010-11 financial year, correcting long-term trends.
However, this included the draught as well as the packaged beer market.
In a Citi report last month, before the annual result, analyst Andy Bowley said CUB's market share had "dropped dramatically" in recent months.
Mr Bowley said the brewer's share, having progressed on a flat to slightly positive trajectory for 12 months until February, had since gone into steep decline.
"In part, the decline in share reflects a more positive company pricing approach since late 2010," he said.
"However, it also reflects more aggressive competitor pricing."
Foster's has emphatically rejected SABMiller's $4.90-a-share pitch, lodged last month.
While the board said the offer significantly undervalued the company, the brewer's share price remains below the offer, easing 1c yesterday to $4.85.
Meanwhile, the Takeovers Panel yesterday considered SABMiller's complaint that there was no reasonable basis for several forward-looking statements by Foster's in presentations to investors.
The bidder asked the panel to consider whether Foster's claims about growth prospects for earnings before interest and tax were misleading and deceptive in the context of a takeover bid.
It also questioned the group's reported net debt figure of $887 million, asking whether it conformed with Australian accounting standards.
The panel normally considers written submissions from both parties on such matters, with each side responding to the claims of the other.
If the matter is not dismissed in the early stages, the hearing normally proceeds for about a week.
The outcome of the panel's deliberations is subject to final approval by the corporate watchdog, the Australian Securities & Investments Commission.
