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. ...

- 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. ...
Mexico’s Modelo profit up 33 pct on weak peso
* Revenue up 1.4 percent to 23.551 bln pesos
* Costs seen rising in Q4
Oct 21 (Reuters) - Mexican brewer Grupo Modelo benefited from the weak peso in the third quarter, posting an almost 33 percent jump in profit even as revenue rose only slightly.
Modelo, which exports popular brands such as Corona, got a boost as the peso saw its steepest slump in September since the 2008 financial crisis. As the peso fell, the value of the company's sales in the United States, its biggest export market, rose.
The brewer reported on Friday that third-quarter profit climbed to 3.310 billion pesos ($238 million) from 2.496 billion pesos a year earlier.
Modelo -- half-owned by the world's biggest brewer, Anheuser-Busch InBev -- said revenue rose 1.4 percent to 23.551 billion pesos.
The brewer could take a hit in the fourth quarter from higher grain costs, Chief Financial Office Emilio Fullaondo warned analysts on a conference call.
A cold snap in September and heavy rains in Mexico's southwest damaged as much as 70 percent of the country's second barley crop of the year, and this mean Modelo will have to import barley at higher prices, Fullaondo said.
Export sales dropped 4.1 percent in the third quarter, hurt by lower sales in the United States. Sales in Latin America and Europe increased.
Modelo is introducing new brands, such as Victoria and Pacifico, and expanding its draft offering in the United States.
"We are committed to developing the new brands that we're launching into the U.S., but that takes time," said Fullaondo. "It's still a very complicated environment in the U.S."
Exports accounted for 32.7 percent of total sales in the quarter, compared with 34.5 percent a year earlier, Modelo said.
Domestic sales were up 9.6 percent.
Modelo shares were up 2.2 percent at 80.64 pesos in local trading on Thursday.
