Russia: Positions of Brewing Companies

The review contains an analysis of interim performance of brewers in the first half of 2019. There are rather dynamic changes behind a modest industry growth. Baltika is again experiencing a stage of volumes and market share slid due to competition with AB InBev Efes. Because of the price competition and presence expansion in the modern trade company #2. has come close to the leading position. At the same time sales of Heineken Russia have continued growing which makes the premium part of the portfolio heavier. The market premiumization trend had been also confirmed by import brands. MBC and Zavod Trekhsosenskiy have been the most successful among federal market players. The market share of independent regional brewers and Ochakovo have continued falling as they are being squeezed out by the market leaders at their competitive fields.

Ukrainian beer market 2019: companies and brands

In 2019 beer production and market have been still fluctuating about zero point. However, the past season was successful for brewers judging by the sales profitability. The price mix has improved due to rapid general market premiumization, as well as its particular aspect, the growth of import beer sales. By the season end AB InBev Efes improved its positions considerably. It turned out that consumers had not forgot Efes brands that had to leave the market, but started to recover rapidly. Against the stagnating market that meant sales decline of other companies, in the first place Carlsberg Group that most of all beneficiated from Efes exiting the market. PPB turned out to be stable to branding activity of its competitor and Obolon kept the same volumes and at the moment it is the absolute leader of the economy segment. The share growth of independent producers took place thanks to leading craft breweries, that so far do not have a big market weight, but they are rapidly gaining it.

Brewing industry in Kazakhstan 2019

During the first half of 2019, the majority of Kazakh brewers made their contribution into positive dynamics. Yet it was companies of the lower division, not the two transnational leaders that raised their production and sales. The shares of draft beer and aluminum can which is rapidly squeezing glass bottle out of the market, have been growing. The price segmentation has remained stable despite the substantial rise of retail prices and fluctuations of brand market shares, while the borders between segments have become blurred. The main events in the industry have been: the announced revision of the beer excise policy, launch of BeerKhan brand in the strong beer segment, and most important – purchasing assets of Shymkentbeer by Arasan.

drinktec brews its own beer

The drinktec team has been having a go at brewing. The result is an ingenious combination of malt and hop varieties rounded off with a note of orange in a "bockbier" christened "Orange Spirit by drinktec Biermanufaktur".

In Elixhausen near Salzburg the entire team of organizers behind drinktec, the Worldґs Leading Trade Fair for Beverage and Liquid Food Technology, was treated to a two-day introduction to the art of making beer: they learned about the raw materials, how to make malt and what happens in the brewing room, about yeast, fermentation and storage, as well as filtration. All of this under the expert guidance of Dr. Michael Zepf, of Doemens Academy GmbH. Also on the program of course was a session in the sensory experience of beer, with participants trying out a variety of combinations of beer and food resulting in surprising taste revelations.

The highlight of the seminar was the chance to then put this new knowledge into practice. In the BIERkulturHAUS in Obertrum, a historic brewery in which beer is made purely by hand, the drinktec team then had a go at brewing a "bockbier" with a fine note of orange inspired by the brand visuals behind the fair. The name of this beer? "Orange Spirit by drinktec Biermanufaktur".

Petra Westphal, Exhibition Director of drinktec, felt very at home in her role as beer guide: "We wanted to learn the ABC of beer-brewing for ourselves. Now we feel like real insiders and share with our customers not only the passion for beer, but also for the craft of making beer." Everyone at drinktec is now looking forward to the first tasting of this special drinktec beer - but they will have to wait five weeks before this limited edition beer can be bottled.
