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. Besides we have compared the beer market of Kazakhstan to neighboring countries. ...

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. ...
EABL gets nod to sell stake in SABMiller’s unit
* Move will seal formal exit from TBL
* Placement set at $1.212 per share
Tanzania's stock market regulator has approved the sale of East African Breweries Ltd's 20 percent stake in SABMiller's Tanzanian unit for 121.5 billion shillings ($71.5 million), brokers said on Tuesday.
Subscriptions to the placement of 58,985,693 shares in Tanzania Breweries Limited run from Oct. 24 to Nov. 11, said Orbit Securities, sponsoring broker for the share sale.
"The Capital Markets and Securities Authority (CMSA) approved the prospectus yesterday and the share sale will start on Monday next week," Orbit Chief Executive Laurean Malauri told Reuters.
"EABL is selling its 20 percent stake in TBL for 121.5 billion shillings ... this is a placement of shares, a few shares of TBL are already listed on the Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange (DSE)."
Controlled by Britain's Diageo , EABL has set a price of 2,060 shillings per share, in what is expected to become the biggest share sale in the tiny Tanzanian bourse's history.
EABL ended a manufacturing and distribution agreement with TBL last year to buy a bigger stake in Tanzanian-based Serengeti Breweries instead and thereby boost its presence in East Africa's second-largest economy.
Serengeti, the second-biggest beer maker in Tanzania after TBL, is owned by a group of private investors.
"EABL is not raising capital or anything in the sale of the shares, it is simply exiting from TBL," said Malauri.
SABMiller and EABL have been in fierce competition for the lucrative Tanzanian beer market where sustained economic and population growth are driving the country's thirst for the alcoholic beverage.
Brokers said TBL's shares recorded a sharp price rise last week from 1,920 shillings to 2,040 shillings, as investors eye the placement of the additional shares.
"TBL's share price increase may have been driven by investors who want to take advantage of the coming mini IPO whereby the shares will be sold at a premium of up to 15 percent of the market price," Tanzania Securities Limited (TSL), a securities brokerage and investment advisory company, said in a weekly commentary sent to Reuters.
Another major player in the DSE, Tanzania's Precision Air, launched its IPO this month in a bid to raise around $17 million for fleet and route expansion.
