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. Tasmac beer sales get summer, election kick

This might sound like something straight out of Ripley’s Believe it or Not if you were not in Tamil Nadu.

For tipplers here, though, the heat and elections combined together are a prescription for beer. That is why after two years, beer sales at The Tamil Nadu State Marketing Corporation Limited have gone up by 20 per cent.

“Outlets which sold 50 bottles in February are now selling more than 100 bottles per day,” said one of the union members who wished anonymity. Exact figures could not be ascertained from Tasmac officials owing to the Model Code of Conduct being in force, but Tasmac union members confirmed that the graph is trending upward in the last 40 days, roughly coinciding with the onset of summer, and electioneering.

Of course, there are other reasons too, industry observers say. A SWOT (Strength, Weakness, Opportunities and Threat) analysis that Tasmac undertook a few months ago helped it strengthen its infrastructure and it is now reaping the fruits. Beer sales dropped last in 2014 (10 per cent) and 2015 (20 per cent).

The reason: liquor prices were hiked. In March 2015, 20.85 lakh cases were sold compared to 25.39 lakh cases previous year. April witnessed sale of 21.71 lakh cases in 2015 against 27.60 lakh in 2014.

There were other concerns too — one, beer needs to be served chill and Tasmac outlets had poor infrastructure. Secondly, not all brands are available in Tamil Nadu.

Tasmac, the cash cow of the State, has more than 6,000 outlets across the State where more than 70 lakh people consume liquor. Of this, more than 2,300 outlets sell beer. And yes, parties and their leaders continue to talk of prohibition.
