Russia: Positions of Brewing Companies

The review contains an analysis of interim performance of brewers in the first half of 2019. There are rather dynamic changes behind a modest industry growth. Baltika is again experiencing a stage of volumes and market share slid due to competition with AB InBev Efes. Because of the price competition and presence expansion in the modern trade company #2. has come close to the leading position. At the same time sales of Heineken Russia have continued growing which makes the premium part of the portfolio heavier. The market premiumization trend had been also confirmed by import brands. MBC and Zavod Trekhsosenskiy have been the most successful among federal market players. The market share of independent regional brewers and Ochakovo have continued falling as they are being squeezed out by the market leaders at their competitive fields.

Ukrainian beer market 2019: companies and brands

In 2019 beer production and market have been still fluctuating about zero point. However, the past season was successful for brewers judging by the sales profitability. The price mix has improved due to rapid general market premiumization, as well as its particular aspect, the growth of import beer sales. By the season end AB InBev Efes improved its positions considerably. It turned out that consumers had not forgot Efes brands that had to leave the market, but started to recover rapidly. Against the stagnating market that meant sales decline of other companies, in the first place Carlsberg Group that most of all beneficiated from Efes exiting the market. PPB turned out to be stable to branding activity of its competitor and Obolon kept the same volumes and at the moment it is the absolute leader of the economy segment. The share growth of independent producers took place thanks to leading craft breweries, that so far do not have a big market weight, but they are rapidly gaining it.

Brewing industry in Kazakhstan 2019

During the first half of 2019, the majority of Kazakh brewers made their contribution into positive dynamics. Yet it was companies of the lower division, not the two transnational leaders that raised their production and sales. The shares of draft beer and aluminum can which is rapidly squeezing glass bottle out of the market, have been growing. The price segmentation has remained stable despite the substantial rise of retail prices and fluctuations of brand market shares, while the borders between segments have become blurred. The main events in the industry have been: the announced revision of the beer excise policy, launch of BeerKhan brand in the strong beer segment, and most important – purchasing assets of Shymkentbeer by Arasan.

India. Goa Minister slammed for approving beer factory

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Goa, on Sunday slammed Goa Industries Minister Mahadev Naik and the State Investment Promotion Board (IPB) for approving a beer factory, a “red category” industry, in Sanguem in south Goa, thereby violating the IPB’s own mandate.

A spokesperson for AAP, Valmiki Naik, said that questions raised by them over the approval of a beer factory remained unanswered despite being raised in the State Legislative Assembly last week.

It may also be recalled that the government continues to draw criticism for passing the highly controversial ‘coconut tree amendment’ to the Preservation of Trees Act, which was seen as giving a green signal for such projects, which would otherwise encounter hurdles from environmental regulations due to their location in certain eco-sensitive areas.

Mr Mahadev Naik has not yet answered AAP’s question as to why the project was not approved in the Sanguem Industrial Estate. The Minister had admitted to the factory being in ‘red category’ after the Opposition cornered him during the Question Hour in the Assembly last week.

Mr Mahadev Naik also defended the project on the grounds that it had the potential to create 500 jobs. However, AAP had already questioned this possible defence, considering that such beer factories have fully automated processes and hence, manual intervention is minimal. Regardless, has the company in question given any guarantee of employment, and if yes, is there any assurance that preference will be given to locals? If not, then on what basis is Mr Mahadev Naik making such claims, questioned Mr Valmiki Naik.

The party is yet to get answers to points raised like the logic of having a water-heavy industry in an area with water scarcity, the adverse impact of the project on the tribal population, and the inevitable pollution in the form of effluent discharge into water bodies as well as strong odour from such units.
