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.

UK: BBPA bemoans Chancellor’s duty snub
George Osborne announced a series of measures to help the UK's struggling economy today (5 December) - including cancelling a planned fuel duty rise - but over-looked alcohol duty. Since 2008, under the Labour-introduced duty 'escalator', alcohol taxes have automatically increased at least 2% above inflation annually.
Despite a vote in Parliament last month backing a review of the escalator, Osborne was silent on the controversial mechanism.
“This is a missed opportunity – employment could be boosted by 5,000, this year alone, with a freeze in beer tax – mostly jobs for younger people in Britain’s pubs," said BBPA chief executive Brigid Simmonds. "The Coalition should distance itself from the previous Government’s tax policy, and the Chancellor should now heed calls from MPs of all parties for a review."
However, the BBPA welcomed the extension of small business rate relief to April 2014, which it said "will support pubs, as will other measures to support business".
