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. ...

Relaunched Sapporo beer gaining popularity in Vietnam
In November 2015, the well-known to Vietnamese consumer re-designed products came into the market. Sapporo has changed a colour of packaging of Premium beer 330 ml from golden to silver, and improved the taste and aroma of the drink.
For those who were not familiar with the company’s activity in Japan, the new beers came as surprise, because Vietnam is not accustomed to innovation in the field of alcoholic beverages. According to Mikio Masawaki, CEO of Sapporo Vietnam, the company’s goal was to guess the tastes of consumers of premium beer in Vietnam, as it is a segment with great potential.
The company believes it is a big achievement that the sales of beer have increased sharply to 150-200% two months after the release of a new product, compared to the same period last year. In 2016 Sapporo plans to expand the distribution of the brand from 4000 to 7000 outlets. Currently, the distribution geography of Sapporo covers Hanoi and Danang, Nha Trang, Da Lat.
