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. Beer parlours in Kerala: Sudheeran hits hut at UDF policy
While lauding the government’s liquor policy which had brought down consumption by 20.27 per cent in the past 18 months, Sudheeran drew attention to the fact that wine and beer sales had increased. “This is due to the licensing of 730 new beer-wine parlours since April 2015. I suggest that an in-depth study of various aspects related to the trend may be conducted under the Subodham programme and corrective measures be initiated,’’ he said.
Sudheeran trashed the argument that prohibition would hit the tourism industry. Tourists visit Kerala to savour natural beauty and not for liquor, he said. ‘’They never come with an intention of consuming liquor. Tourists are also attracted to the culture and legacy of Kerala. The number of those tourists coming for ayurvedic treatment is also not less. Actually alcohol consumption is not permitted along with ayurvedic treatment,’’ he said. ‘’I feel that tourists were afraid of coming to Kerala because of liquor-related crimes against women,’’ he said. He also suggested a campaign against liquor and drugs right from the primary school level as part of a catch-them-young policy.
Terming the UDF government’s liquor policy a ‘’classic case of knee-jerk reaction,’’ T N Seema MP called for its modification. ‘’The CPM sincerely believes that the present policy was formulated without any scientific deliberations and that it is a classic case of knee-jerk reaction. The present policy needs to be examined and corrective action taken,’’ she said. To questions from the audience on whether the CPM would ban beer and wine parlours if it came to power, she said that an appropriate decision would be taken at that time. ‘’We are never for promoting alcohol,’’ she said.
