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. Besides we have compared the beer market of Kazakhstan to neighboring countries. ...

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. ...
UK: Charles Wells sees FY profits slide, appoints new brewing MD
Net sales flat at GBP189m
EBITDA rises by 4% to GBP17.4m
International sales up 28% year-on-year
Charles Wells has reported a slide in full-year profits as it continues to feel the impact of losing the rights to Corona Extra and Red Stripe lagers in the UK.
Profits after tax fell by 9% to GBP6m (US$9.72m) in the 12 months to the end of September, the company, which incorporates Wells & Young’s Brewing Company, Charles Wells Pub Company and John Bull Pub Company, said today (18 December). Sales in the period were flat at GBP189m.
EBITDA increased by 4% to GBP17.4m in the 12 months.
The group said it had expected a fall in overall profits as the “full effect” of losing Red Strip and Corona in 2010 was felt. However it said the drop was offset by the acquisition of McEwan’s and Younger’s brands last year.
In international makets, the Bedford-based group saw a bounce in sales, up 27.7% year-on-year.
The group's wine company, Cockburn & Campbell, reported a 6% rise in sales, with volumes up 2.8%.
Meanwhile, Charles Wells' FD Justin Phillimore has been appointed as Wells & Young's new MD, replacing Nigel McNally who left in September.
A new group HR director, Andrea Holton, has also been appointed.
Both start their roles on 7 January.
Paul Wells, Charles Wells' chairman, said the group's performance has been “in line with expectations”. He added: "Our international sales and pub operations have demonstrated that growth is possible at home and overseas, despite the difficulties of the global economy, and our wine company has also delivered excellent growth.”
