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 global outlooks of the legal market of cannabis are excellent. It is possible to simultaneously imagine dry law repeal and craft brewing boom but not in one but in several consumer categories. For alcohol is contained in liquids and cannabis derivatives can be in three physical forms. The value of legal market of cannabis and its products can reach 10% of the world beer market in five years, and in 2030-2040 even reach the same scope provided the current rates of legalization and development of market infrastructure remain at the same level. Cannabinoids are actively integrating into the food industry from chewing gum to beverages deforming the pharmaceutical and alcohol markets, they influence the trends of healthy lifestyle and beauty. ...
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. ...
GEA at Chillventa 2014 – innovations for cooling and climate control
Presentations by GEA Heat Exchangers will include new GEA Denco equipment for climate control of computer centers, heat exchangers for building services, redesigned industrial GEA Goedhardt air coolers, as well as GEA K?ba air coolers for the refrigeration of food and beverages. GEA Heat Exchangers will also present new GEA Searle gas coolers. The new GEA CAIR®pool series from the area of climate control will also be in the spotlight:
40 % less power consumption with the GEA CAIR®pool series of swimming-pool climate-control systems
GEA Heat Exchangers replaces the previous swimming-pool climate-control CAIR®fricostar range by its new GEA CAIR®pool series with its completely new internal configuration and highly efficient components. The new engineering design leads to significantly less corrosion susceptibility and reduces the danger of pollutant emission into the swimming pool. The GEA CAIR®pool series also reduces power consumption by approx. 40 % compared to standard market solutions. The gains in efficiency are the results of such improvements as EC fans, inverter-controlled compressors, electronic expansion valves, and a new closed-loop control strategy. With respect to various application and installation situations, the user has a choice of extraordinarily efficient double-plate heat exchangers, small-footprint Power Tubes, and even liquid-coupled energy recovery systems. The last-stated possibility enables heat recovery in configurations with separate installation of supply-air and extract-air units. With 13 model sizes, the series covers the entire spectrum of requirements: private swimming pools, wellness facilities and hotel pools, as well as public swimming pools and leisure centers. Accordingly, models are available with maximum air flow of 800 m?/h for the smallest units, up to approx. 36,000 m?/h for the largest models.
GEA Refrigeration Technologies, on the occasion of Chillventa 2014, will introduce a number of new developments: for example, it will premiere the new F28, an open GEA Bock piston compressor. The innovations will also include the GEA BluGenium chiller series (maximum cooling duty of approx. 280 to 1200 kW), with its outstanding European Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (ESEER value) of approx. 9.5. Likewise new is the compact G100 ice generator, made of stainless steel. The new GEA Omni control system will also surely draw the keen attention of the public.
GEA Omni™ – a control system for refrigeration and gas compression facilities
In its development of the GEA Omni™ control system, GEA Refrigeration Technologies has placed top priority on simple and intuitive operator action. This is possible by the HD multi-touch color display, which not only shows text and images clearly, but also enables context-sensitive menu navigation. This means that operators can easily find their way without a long learning curve. The product is called “GEA Omni” because it is an open system that can control the components of a refrigeration facility or a gas compressor facility – and not only GEA equipment, but also that of other manufacturers. Separate, auxiliary control systems for periphery components are therefore often unnecessary. Various maintenance functions, the support of common industrial communication standards, and a clearly organized panel simplify initial startup and plant service.
