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. A question to Congress, on bars in Karnataka
Speaking to mediapersons on the sidelines of the party’s pre-election roadshow ‘Janakeeya Yatra’ here on Thursday, Mr. Rajendran wanted Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi to clarify on the issue. He said the Congress government in Karnataka was in the process of sanctioning 1,500 bars, most of them in areas bordering Kerala.
Reacting to a question Mr. Rajendran said the Left Democratic Front stance on liquor policy was clear as the front stood for temperance and not liquor ban. The details of the policy would be delineated either in the election manifesto or after coming to power. The CPI leader alleged that the government claim on closing down the bars was false as 418 of them had already been turned into beer and wine parlours.
“This has resulted in soaring consumption of beer which has gone up by 95 per cent and that of wine, by 131.7 per cent. There has also been a quantum jump in the consumption of hard liquor in December compared to November,” he said. On the expansion of LDF base, Mr. Rajendran said parties would be inducted on the basis of their policies. Kerala Congress (M) should first redefine its policies and specifically reject their support for the regional trade agreement with ASEAN for the LDF to consider its induction into the coalition, he said.
