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.

Cooperation agreement signed between Messe München and the Italian wine association UIV
The trade-fair cities of Munich and Milan have teamed up to create a special constellation in wine technology: SIMEI, the leading international exhibition for enological and bottling equipment, will in future take place every four years in conjunction with drinktec, the world´s leading trade fair, in Munich. SIMEI will still retain its traditional two-year cycle, but from now on, its venue will alternate between Italy and Munich. “This agreement is unique in the international trade-fair business,” says Domenico Zonin, President of the Unione Italiana Vini Società Cooperative (UIV):
A cooperation agreement to this effect has now been signed by the organizers of the two trade fairs—the Milan-based Unione Italiana Vini Società Cooperative (UIV) and Messe München. drinktec and SIMEI are therefore pooling their respective strengths in a twin platform that will be the world´s most important technology, trading and marketing showcase for the sector.
Reinhard Pfeiffer, Managing Director at Messe München with responsibility for drinktec, sees this cross-border cooperation as strengthening both parties: “I am very pleased that we have reached an agreement. Both trade fairs will benefit from it. The exhibitors at drinktec, of which almost half also offer solutions for the wine industry, will have access to even more potential customers as a result of the integration of SIMEI. Vice versa, too, the international scope of drinktec will benefit the SIMEI exhibitors. And not least, this agreement also strengthens the status of Munich as a top location for trade fairs.”
Domenico Zonin is also confident: “The cooperation with drinktec is the basis for the further development and internationalization of SIMEI, as the leading trade fair for wine technology.”
The next SIMEI takes place from November 3 to 6, 2015 in Milan. After that, from September 11 to 15, 2017, it will celebrate its Munich premiere, as an integrated part of drinktec. In 2019 SIMEI will then again be held in Italy, where, supported by drinktec, it will feature an extended portfolio to include further beverage categories.
The agreement between MMG and UIV makes provision for a special SIMEI exhibition space within drinktec 2017 in Munich dedicated exclusively to the wine sector. This showcase is to extend to at least two exhibition halls, and cover a total of 20,000 square meters of space. As a result the total hall space taken up by the world´s leading trade fair drinktec rises to over 150,000 square meters.
In addition to this, the organizers of the two trade fairs have agreed that SIMEI will also get involved in the worldwide events portfolio of drinktec: With drink technology India, food & drink technology Africa and China Brew China Beverage, drinktec already has a strong presence in key global markets. SIMEI has been held in Milan since 1963, and it is regarded as the world´s leading trade fair for wine technology. Over 600 exhibitors and more than 40,000 visitors are expected to attend SIMEI in 2015.
The origins of drinktec go back to the 1950s. This trade fair is regarded as the world´s No. 1 event for the beverage and liquid food industry: It covers the entire process chain from raw materials, agents and additives, to production, filling, packaging and logistics, as well as marketing.
Francesco Pavanello, Director-General of UIV, commented: “I am proud to see the attention and recognition shown to this joint project by such an important and international trade-fair company as Messe München. The most important components of this agreement in our view are: UIV retains the brand rights to SIMEI; SIMEI has high visibility at a trade fair as prestigious as drinktec; and we have the possibility of further joint projects in the medium and long-term.”
Richard Clemens, Managing Director of the VDMA Food Processing and Packaging Machinery Association (Fachverband Nahrungsmittelmaschinen und Verpackungsmaschinen), the conceptual sponsor of drinktec, sees the cooperation as above all bringing advantages to the exhibitors and visitors of both trade fairs: “The technology already showcased at drinktec for the wine industry will now be superbly supplemented by this cooperation with SIMEI. For drinktec exhibitors there will be additional visitor potential from strong wine-growing countries—above all Italy. In addition the cooperation also offers significant added value to visitors from emerging wine-growing countries, thanks to a more in-depth spectrum of products and services.”
drinktec has been held in Munich since its premiere in 1951. A four-year event cycle was introduced in 1985. drinktec is the most important trade fair for the sector. Manufacturers and suppliers from all over the world—global companies and SMEs alike—meet up here with all sizes of producers and retailers of beverages and liquid food products. Within the sector drinktec is regarded as the number one platform for launching new products on the world market. At this event manufacturers present the latest technology for processing, filling and packaging all kinds of beverages and liquid food—raw materials and logistics solutions included. The themes of beverages marketing and packaging design round off the portfolio. drinktec 2013, which took place at the Messe München exhibition center in Munich from September 16 to 20, 2013, attracted 1,445 exhibitors from 77 countries. And with 66,886 trade visitors from 183 countries, drinktec 2013 celebrated a resounding success. The next drinktec takes place from September 11 to 15, 2017 in Munich.
