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.
Resilient European brewing sector hit by recession but fighting back
According to the Ernst & Young and Regioplan study, beer consumption fell 8% from 2008 to 2010, cutting 260,000 jobs, of which 85% in the hospitality sector, in the sector’s value chain. Government revenues from the sector, including excise duties collection, fell a staggering 6% in one year, from 54 billion in 2008 to 50.6 billion Euros in 2009, in spite of tax increases on beer across a number of countries.
Although the overall contribution of beer to the EU economy has decreased by 10% since 2008, the contribution of the brewing sector to the economy remains very significant. According to the Brewers of Europe production and consumption of beers provides more than 2 million jobs across Europe whilst total annual sales equal around 106 billion Euros. Despite tough times, the number of breweries multiplied to over 3,600 last year, from just over 3,000 in 2008. Non-alcoholic beer sales have also increased in some countries.
“The study underlines the fact that the brewing sector has resilience, remains a global leader and has a very positive impact on the European economy,” said Alberto Da Ponte, President of The Brewers of Europe, which represents the 3,600 breweries across Europe.
In addition to the recent global downturn, the decrease in the economic contribution was driven by an increasing tax burden, higher raw material prices, new restrictions and a growing shift in consumption from the hospitality sector towards retail and home consumption, where the government revenues, value-added and employment generated by one litre of beer are significantly lower. Beer sales fell by 15% in the hospitality sector, compared to 4% in retail outlets.
As the economic crisis hit in 2008, China passed the EU as the biggest beer producer in the world, the study shows. Despite the crisis, the sector has adapted well, although relentless increases in beer excise duties will stifle any recovery and it needs supportive government policy in terms of regulation and taxation, to now help drive the growth of the wider EU economy and help prevent further job losses.
Da Ponte said, “The report shows how with the right policy from governments and policymakers, the brewing sector can play a leading role in the economic recovery that is important to us all.”
The report presents consolidated data on the 27 EU Member States. Detailed information is also provided on the EU 27 countries plus Croatia, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey.
