Ukrainian beer market 2019: companies and brands

In 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 2019

During 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.

ZIEMANN at the BrauBeviale 2014

Focus on lautering technology – lauter tun and mash filter from a single source

At this year’s BrauBeviale ZIEMANN International GmbH, located in Ludwigsburg, will be focussing on the lautering technology. In this respect, Ziemann takes into account that the lautering process plays an important role in terms of efficiency, wort quality and the brewing sequence. Furthermore, the current market trends have a direct influence on the design and areas of application of a lauter tun or mash filter.

On the one hand, there are the craft breweries, whose production is oriented towards the traditional brewing process. Currently, these craft breweries are very successful with their special craft beers. For this segment Ziemann offers its new LOTUS lauter tun design from a cast-out wort volume of 50 hl. Ziemann will be presenting the new lauter tun design during the BrauBeviale. Lotus is particularly suitable for craft breweries, since the lauter tun efficiently processes different types of grist and original wort and impresses with its simple and smart design.

Global large-scale breweries, however, also need the right tools for the production of beer. For this segment Ziemann offers its proven high-performance lauter tun as well as its self-developed mash filter TCM (Thin Layer Chamber Mash Filter). The mash filter system has established itself in the market, especially where high-gravity beers are brewed with raw grains or an alternative source of starch. Under these conditions, the mash filter TCM processes up to 25 tons of grist and brew sizes of up to 1,500 hl. Moreover, the Ziemann mash filter accomplishes up to 16 brews per day.
