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.

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. UBL land issue: Chief Minister clarifies
The land was allotted to the company by the Palakkad Collector in 2013 after it went through a long process dating back to 1971. ‘’The government is now being made a scapegoat in the issue and it is regrettable,’’ he said. All the allegations against the UDF government are not factually correct, he added.
The process of allotting land to Premier Breweries Ltd at Kanjikode started in 1971 when the then Industries Minister N E Balaram, through a telex message, directed the then Palakkad collector to allot land. The Collector had then given 20 acres of land on lease. In 1985, Palakkad Tahalsidar issued a temporary title-deed for the land, Chandy said.
The company, in 1995, merged with United Breweries Limited (UBL). As per the demand of the company, the Collector had taken steps to transfer the land to UBL in 2002. The Collector, in 2003, informed the Revenue Department that the land can be transferred to the company at a cost of Rs 20,000 a cent. And in 2005, the government decided to allot the land. But the company moved the High court against the order stating that the amount was higher. Later, they paid Rs 14.04 crore towards the cost of the land and withdrew the petition. Subsequently, the Palakkad Collector directed the Tahasildar to allot the land to the company.
