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.

On The Frontier Of Beer In Vietnam

Folks in Vietnam sure do like a cold one. Since gaining broad popular appreciation in the 1990s, beer sales have soared and the country has become one of the largest per capita consumers in the region.

Not that there is not a tradition of beer drinking in the country. The famous freshly-brewed bia hoi can still be found on street corners here and there, but it is in the mass-produced larger sector that things have come on in leaps and bounds.

The Vietnam Beverage Association reports that in 2015 the country consumed 3.4 billion liters of beer, roughly 38 liters for every individual in the country. This was up 10 percent on the previous year, and a whopping 41 percent compared to 2010.

Local brewing giant Sabeco and its range of mass-produced blond largers accounted for slightly less than half of market share, but foreign brewers such as Sapporo and AB-InBev are moving in aggressively also.

A lot of the uptick in consumption is down to the fact that, well, beer is cool again with young adults. Since 2010, ‘beer clubs’, as they are known, have sprouted all over the country. These drinking palaces are pretty much as the name describes: lavishly decorated venues pumping out dance music, with crowds of people gathered in groups drinking beer from a tower device so they can self-serve. The bathrooms come complete with basins set aside for drinkers to purge themselves before returning to the action.

But there are signs, albeit small in the big picture, that the beer market in Vietnam is evolving. Craft beer is ubiquitous in much of the Western world, and local craft brewers are starting to make their presence felt in Vietnam.

Arguably the first to really get the ball rolling was the Pasteur Street Brewing Company, named after the venerable boulevard that bisects downtown Saigon. Unlike most start-up small brewers, they initially only sold their product through their own taproom, located, naturally, on the same street.
