The market of import beer in Russia: review and databasesThe market of import beer is rapidly growing and changing. But while in the past years it was growing due to brands variety, in 2019 major and affordable brands from TOP-10 were developing actively. It seems that the fact of a brand origin from far abroad counties, even if it is not well known but has moderate price and good distribution provides for million liters of sales in the territory of Russia. Among distributors AB InBev Efes was far behind, yet the role of Baltika and suppliers of the second row got more important. The boom of German brands was followed by stagnation of import from other traditional regions (and Belarus) instead the supplies from Mexico, Lithuania and Asian countries grew considerably.
Instead of local Sabeco beer, will Vietnamese choose beer from Thailand?
Experts have warned that more and more Thai goods will penetrate the domestic market, especially when they are backed by powerful distribution networks.
Thai Central Group has taken over Big C retail chain and joined forces with Nguyen Kim to buy Zalora, an online shopping system. A source said Thais now control 50 percent of the Vietnamese retail market.
Sources said it was highly possible that Vietnamese would also have Thai beer to drink in the future.
Sabeco has submitted to the government the plan to divest 53 percent of Sabeco’s stakes to reduce its ownership ratio from 89 percent to 36 percent.
The sources said more than 10 investors, both Vietnamese and foreign, have registered to buy Sabeco’s stakes. There are big names among Vietnamese potential investors, such as Saigon Securities Incorporated (SSI), Anh Duong Company and Duc Binh Group.
Meanwhile, Japanese Ashahi, Dutch Heineken, Thai ThaiBev and US SAB Miller are included on the list of foreign investors.
Of these, ThaiBev is believed to be the most active investor who shows strong desire to buy Sabeco’s stakes.
The information about Sabeco’s sale of 53 percent of stakes appeared in mass media first in November 2014. At that time, ThaiBev, which owns Chang beer and Oishi green tea brands, expressed its willingness to buy the lot of shares, valuing Sabeco at $2 billion.
At that moment, Sabeco held 46 percent of the domestic market share with two well-known brands – 333 and Bia Sai Gon.
In early 2015, ThaiBev once again voiced its wish to buy 40 percent of Sabeco’s stakes at $1 billion, which means total value of $2.5 billion for Sabeco. However, the deal failed as Sabeco thought the offered price was lower than its actual value.
Analysts commented that ThaiBev is attracted by the Vietnamese attractive market. With 90 million people, in the first four months of 2016, Vietnam consumed over 1 billion liters of beer, or 10 million liters a day.
If ThaiBev can acquire Sabeco, it would be able to have 40 percent of the domestic market.
The owner of ThaiBev proves to have good understanding about the Vietnamese market. He now holds 11 percent of Vinamilk through Fraser & Neave, a subsidiary, and runs 5-star hotel Melia Hanoi through TTC Land.
