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. ...

China Resources Beer appoints advisers on SABMiller joint venture
China Resources Beer had picked advisers including HSBC, Nomura, Rothschild and UBS, said the people, who asked not to be identified as the information is private.
The state-backed company has been weighing a purchase of all or part of SABMiller’s 49% stake in China Resources Snow Breweries, maker of the world’s best-selling beer, people with knowledge of the matter said last month.
Anheuser-Busch InBev may need to sell the stake in the brewer of Snow lager to secure Chinese antitrust approval for its $109bn acquisition of SABMiller, which will create a beer maker controlling about half the industry’s profits.
SABMiller’s stake in the Chinese venture could fetch as much as $3.6bn, Nomura wrote in a November 16 research report.
Frank Lai, China Resources Beer’s chief financial officer, declined to comment. Spokesmen for HSBC, Nomura and UBS declined to comment, while a representative for Rothschild did not immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment.
China Resources was seen as the logical buyer if AB InBev decides to sell, as it has a right of first refusal, people with knowledge of the matter said last month.
AB InBev had not yet decided whether it would sell the stake, and China Resources was not set on any particular course of action, the people said at the time.
Beer sales in China will expand 41% in the five years to end-2019 to reach $105bn, according to a June report from research firm Euromonitor.
SABMiller said its Chinese beverage volumes declined 3% in the first half of its fiscal year due to crimped consumer spending, even as China Resources Snow outperformed the market.
Snow beer, which had a 23% market share in China last year, outsells all other beers globally, Euromonitor data show.
The partnership between SABMiller and China Resources, which began with two breweries in 1994, operates more than 90 breweries across China and employs more than 59,000 staff, according to SABMiller’s website.
