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.

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. Finally, Tamil Nadu administration shuts seven Tasmac shops
When the Tasmac shop located at Perur Chettipalyam was shut by the district administration, the entire area celebrated the event like a festival. Crackers were burst, functions were held and sweets were distributed.
"We feel like we are liberated after 15 years. We have been protesting for several years. Last June, more than 400 women united to protest against the shop. Every time we visited the temple, the medical shop or returned home, we were humiliated by these men who passed lewd comments about us. We are glad that it will all come to an end now," said R Padmavathi who has been residing at Perur Chettipalayam for over 20 years.
Residents of other areas were also happy and grateful to the administration. A woman whose 25 year-old son was a regular visitor to the Tasmac shop in Cheripalayam said, "Though, this would not stop my son from consuming alcohol, it will at least stop him from visiting the shop every hour," said the woman who did not want to be named. The district administration officials said that since most of these shops were in a dilapidated condition and located in areas where there were schools, temples and shops, the shops were shut down.
A Radhika, district secretary of All India Democratic Women's Association (AIDWA) said that their job was not over yet. "We have petitioned the district collector to close down many other shops that are located in prime areas near schools and temples. There is a Tasmac shop functioning at Kamarajapuram in Ganapthy, one at Udayampalayam, Karamadai and Sundarapuram which should also be shut down. We were told that these shops will also be shut down within a month. We are hopeful that action is taken as soon as possible," she said.
