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. ...

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. ...
India. Plan to rid A.P. of illicitly distilled liquor by April-end
The Excise Department has already intensified its efforts to rein in the well-entrenched trade in the last two months.
Officials admit that the drive against illicit liquor has not been effective over the years for the simple reason that though thousands of cases are booked, they are not be taken to their logical conclusion. “Thus, there is no deterrence for those indulging in hooch trade. However, we are now planning and finalising a strategy to rid the State of ID liquor through a two-pronged strategy — drive against illicit liquor and strict regulation,” official sources told The Hindu .
The department is gearing up to make a presentation before Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu to expose the roots of illicit liquor trade and how the kingpins get away by using political connections. Once the strategy has the approval of the Chief Minister, a clear signal will go against political interference as in the case of red sanders, sources say. As a first step, the department has involved 200 Inspector of Circles and they have been keeping an eye on 1,991 locations where ID liquor is either manufactured or sold. The department has also been making district-wise assessment on the illicit trade.
“We are now in the process of preparing dossiers on the persons involved in the illegal business,” sources disclosed.
The department began with binding over of persons involved in the ID liquor business with a surety of Rs.50,000. If such persons indulged in the offence again, they would be taken into custody. Clear instructions were given to the district-level officers to track the kingpins behind the trade, apart from rounding off those commissioned by the big players to brew illicit liquor involving tribal people and other vulnerable sections, sources said.
The PD Act would be slapped against repeat offenders, and for this case files have already been opened in some districts. “In the first phase, Kurnool and Prakasam will be rid of ID liquor by February-end. The next target is to declare East Godavari, Visakhapatnam, Anantapur, Chittoor ID-free by April-end,” sources said.
