Dmitry Nekrasov’s Philosophy — on the Past, Present and Future of Ukrainian Brewing IndustryA meeting with Dmitry Nekrasov always turns into a training course: “Introduction to brewing business“. We are talking to a clever “playing trainer“ a person that can be called a godfather of the Ukrainian craft. He has a dozen of successful projects to his name. Dmitry told us about craft beer in Ukraine, on market cycles, on specifity of operating in retail and HoReCa, on union of Ukrainian brewers and certainly, how a brewery of his own, First Dnipro Brewery is doing.
The market of import beer in Russia: review and databasesThe market of import beer is rapidly growing and changing. But while in the past years it was growing due to brands variety, in 2019 major and affordable brands from TOP-10 were developing actively. It seems that the fact of a brand origin from far abroad counties, even if it is not well known but has moderate price and good distribution provides for million liters of sales in the territory of Russia. Among distributors AB InBev Efes was far behind, yet the role of Baltika and suppliers of the second row got more important. The boom of German brands was followed by stagnation of import from other traditional regions (and Belarus) instead the supplies from Mexico, Lithuania and Asian countries grew considerably.
Russia: Positions of Brewing CompaniesThe 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 brandsIn 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 2019During 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.
The trend of complication of Russian beer market is going on and in several directions at the same time. The range has got wider, the import and small segments are growing, namely craft beer, alcohol-free beer and special flavor beer. At the same time, all ex-mega brands and light lagers by Russian brewers are experiencing a decline of their shares. AB InBev Efes, Heineken, MBC and Pivzavod Trekhsosenskiy have exceeded the market, Carlsberg was developing slower than the market and Ochakovo as well as some other mid-sized breweries have been cutting down their volumes. To a big extent brewers’ performance was connected to their ability to reach agreement with networks, sacrifice their margin and enter new markets. Craft brewers are facing a serious danger of producers’ registration introduction – de facto licensing. ...

The first InterBev Beverage in Chicago from June 10 to 13, 2014
N?rnbergMesse North America has split the InterBev product coverage into two targeted shows, InterBev Beverage and InterBev Process.With this move, the show – already well-established and highly regarded on the US market – is preparing for the future by making a clear separation between individual product categories. Exhibitors can now efficiently present their offerings to closely defined target groups.It starts with InterBev Beverage in Chicago from June 10 to 13, 2014. InterBev Process will follow in September 2015.

The two shows offer new, target group-specific venues for beverage wholesalers, retailers and online dealers, and for manufacturers and buyers of capital goods. Both shows will be held together with other events in order to provide maximum benefit for exhibitors and attendees alike.
InterBev Beverage: A new format for the beverage trade

N?rnbergMesse Group expertise in the beverage industry
The two new InterBev divisions are a perfect fit in the N?rnbergMesse Group portfolio, with its recognized expertise for the beverage and packaging industries, among others. Andrea Paulinelli, Director of InterBev with N?rnbergMesse North America, sees great value in this setting: "We are very glad that with InterBev Beverage and InterBev Process, we can draw on the extensive experience of the N?rnbergMesse Group in these areas. With BrauBeviale, FachPack and BIOFACH we have three major shows, from which these two new shows can draw great benefit." In the late 70s the beverage industry found a trade show home at BrauBeviale in Nuremberg, Germany. In 2014 BrauBeviale is the world's leading capital-goods show for beverage production. From November 11 to 13, it will bring together an extensive range of some 1300 exhibitors of raw materials, technology, logistics and marketing ideas with around 33,000 attendees who are looking to invest. FachPack is one of Europe's most important packaging shows, and in 2015 it will offer a wide range of solutions around beverage packaging and logistics. BIOFACH, the world’s leading trade fair for organic food, also makes its contribution to the beverage market with a focus on organic beverages. "So that gives us a great starting position for InterBev Beverage and InterBev Process to become the place where industry meets for the beverage trade and industry in North America," said Paulinelli.
