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.

- 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. ...
Suntory denies in talks to buy Danone water assets
* Danone looking to sell water assets by year-end -Bloomberg
* Danone CFO declines comment, says water business "still strategic"
TOKYO, Oct 18 (Reuters) - Japanese beverage firm Suntory Holdings denied a report on Tuesday that it is in negotiations with France's Danone SA on buying the French group's water assets.
Bloomberg News said Danone is in talks with Suntory about a sale of all or part of its water business, citing three sources, in a deal Danone hopes to clinch by year-end. Suntory may only buy Danone's water operations in Asia, two of the sources said.
"We are neither in negotiations, nor bidding, for Danone's Japanese, or any other portion of, its water business," a Tokyo-based Suntory spokeswoman said.
Speaking in France, Danone CFO Pierre Andre Terisse declined to comment on the report but told analysts during a conference call that the water business was "still strategic" for Danone.
Last November, Danone, the world's No 2 bottled water producer, was in early talks with unnamed parties on such a deal, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters.
Suntory, along with Japanese brewers Kirin Holdings and Asahi Group Holdings , had previously been mentioned as potential bidders for Danone's water business, which includes Evian and Badoit bottled waters.
Japanese beverage firms have been looking abroad for growth as they battle a highly competitive and shrinking home market.
Earlier this year, Suntory entered a soft drinks venture with Indonesia's GarudaFood and in 2009 bought soft drinks maker Orangina.
