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. ...
SABMiller Revenue Beats Estimates on Premium Beer Demand
Revenue at the maker of Grolsch and Peroni rose 8 percent on an organic basis, which excludes the effects of acquisitions and disposals, the London-based company said today in a statement. That was ahead of the 6.5 percent median estimate of 11 analysts surveyed by Bloomberg News.
The report shows price increases and an appetite for more premium tipples buoyed sales in Latin America, one of SABMiller’s biggest regions, even as cold weather in China and lackluster consumer spending in Europe damped demand for thirst- quenching lagers, causing volume growth to miss analyst estimates. SABMiller’s shares rose as much as 1.4 percent in London trading to 3,000.5 pence.
“We think the revenue beat will offset the volume miss,” Anthony Bucalo, an analyst at Banco Santander SA in London, wrote in a note today. Santander recommends buying the stock.
SABMiller gets most of its revenue from emerging markets including Latin America and Africa, where volume rose 6 percent and 4 percent, respectively. The brewer said in November that it had seen “moderation of economic growth” in some countries, though emerging-market growth potential remained strong.
“The positive surprises come in high-margin areas and the misses in low ones” in the report, analysts at JPMorgan Chase & Co. in London wrote in a note.
So-called organic lager volume increased 2 percent in the third quarter, lower than the 3 percent median estimate of analysts surveyed by Bloomberg News.
Volume in Europe gained 1 percent, less than the 5 percent median analyst estimate, as markets including Poland and the Czech Republic suffered “depressed consumer confidence,” the company said. Volume in the Asia-Pacific region showed an unexpected 1 percent decline, missing the median estimate for a 5 percent gain, as China’s wet weather depressed spending. China represents about 20 percent of group volume, but only 2 percent of profit, according to analysis by UBS AG.
SABMiller bought Foster’s Group Ltd. in 2011 for about A$10.5 billion ($11.1 billion), which boosted first-half earnings in Asia. The Australian brewer has higher margins than SABMiller, which is aiming to increase sales of pricier, more profitable beers in that country as volumes wane.
Australian volume slid 4 percent in the quarter, an improvement from the first half’s 8 percent decline. Volume fell 15 percent including the loss of some discontinued brands.
Sales to wholesalers at the company’s U.S. joint venture MillerCoors LLC dropped 1.4 percent, according to the statement. South Africa, where the brewer was founded, showed a 3 percent increase in volume, ahead of estimates.
