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.
Plze?sk? Prazdroj sales slightly increased, driven by lagers and speciality beers
"After the past several years affected by adverse economic conditions, the market is slowly stabilizing. Premium brands and speciality beers did particularly well last year. Further development of the market may be impacted by the insecure economic situation in Europe and subdued consumer confidence," says Doug Brodman, CEO of Plze?sk? Prazdroj.
The market is starting to stabilize with lager and speciality beer sales on the increase
Overall beer sales have stabilized at 2010 levels. Lager sales went up by 4% last year and benefited from volume growth of our Premium beer brands, particularly Pilsner Urquell. This brand outperformed the beer market and also the premium category last year. Also the Frisco brand showed strong performance with the introduction of our new Cranberry variant. Despite continuing pressure in the on-premise channel, the share of beer consumed in pubs and restaurants is around 45%, which is unique in the world and only proves how exceptional Czech beer culture is.
Record year in exports
Despite the fragile global economy, last year's exports rose mainly in countries with already high sales of Plzensky Prazdroj beers, such as Slovakia, Canada and Hungary.
Plze?sk? Prazdroj is the leading exporter of Czech beer. By 1870 the brewery already exported its beer to more than 30 countries around the world, including overseas, and has long been building a reputation for Czech beer around the world. Thanks to its reputation, but also good cooperation with exporters and an appropriate mix of marketing and trade-marketing tools, demand for Plze?sk? Prazdroj's beer brands abroad has reached 890 thousand hl, which is a new historical record.
