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. ...

Global Beer Wars
As the world's largest energy companies continue to make discoveries off the eastern coast of Africa, they will soon have several choices of refreshment after a long day of drilling.
Diageo (NYSE: DEO ) and SAB Miller have both closed deals in East Africa and are poised to duke it out over market share in Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania. Diageo has invested $1 billion in Africa over the last four years. The company's Kenyan subsidiary, East African Breweries, recorded a first-half profit increase of 17%. Sales for the unit were up 36%.
SAB Miller invested $80 million to build a new beer plant and double the capacity of its Nile Brewing subsidiary. It has also invested $1.75 billion in Africa over the last four years.
Many companies are making an effort to expand their presence in Eastern Europe before this summer's Euro 2012 soccer tournament in June, and Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE: BUD ) is no exception. The company plans to open six to 10 new locations for its Belgian Beer Cafe franchise in Poland, where half of the games will be played.
Anheuser-Busch also has its eye on a pricey Czech lager. Competition is stiff for StarBev, the brewer of Staropramen, as SABMiller (SBMRY.PK), Heineken (HINKY.PK), and Molson Coors (NYSE: TAP ) are expected to look at the $3 billion operation as well.
An interesting point here is that Anheuser-Busch actually used to own StarBev and sold it to CVC Capital Partners in 2009. The potentially lucrative developing economies in Eastern Europe may prove to be a strong enough siren song for the beverage giant to repurchase the company.
Though China's economy is huge compared to the examples above, it will continue to grow at a breakneck pace. As a result, Anheuser-Busch is competing with the likes of SABMiller, Tsingtao, and China Resources Enterprise to purchase Chinese company Kingway Brewery Holdings.
Kingway is the third-largest player in Guangdong province, one of the wealthiest in China. The brand holds a 15% market share there, and the unit is expected to sell for $550 million.
China is the world's largest beer consumer, but I like the East African play the best. There isn't as much competition, and those economies could really take off as energy investments pour into the region in the next five years.
