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.

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. ...
Singapore. TCC Extends Deadline for Fraser & Neave to Jan 2
Mr. Charoen's offer of 8.88 Singapore dollars (US$7.27) for each Fraser & Neave share that he doesn't already own, made through his unlisted investment vehicle TCC Assets, will now close on Jan. 2, TCC said in a filing to the Singapore Exchange. The offer price remains the same.
The offer, which was first made in September, was to have closed Tuesday and this extension is the fourth time that TCC has pushed back the deadline.
Mr. Charoen currently owns about 35% of Fraser & Neave, a real-estate and soft-drinks company.
Last month, Overseas Union Enterprise Ltd. (LJ3.SG), owned by Indonesia's Riady family, made a S$9.08 per share bid for Fraser & Neave, raising the specter of a bidding war. The US$10.6 billion offer led by OUE, a Singapore-based property developer, expires Jan. 3.
A sleepy Singaporean conglomerate with 129 years of operations, Fraser & Neave came into play in July, when Mr. Charoen started building up his stake in the conglomerate. That prompted Heineken, which had an 80-year-old partnership with Fraser & Neave in brewing Tiger beer, to make a bid for the Singapore company's beer assets, which were eventually sold to the Dutch brewing giant.
