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. ...

Malaysia to raise drinking age to 21
The new threshold goes into effect on December 1, 2017 along with a new requirement that manufacturers add warnings on the health dangers of alcohol consumption to their product labels, Health Minister S. Subramaniam said in a statement.
Businesses serving alcoholic beverages must display similar notices.
Subramaniam said the step was in line with the "Global Strategy to Reduce Harmful Use of Alcohol", an effort spearheaded by the World Health Organization.
The New Straits Times newspaper quoted him as saying certain types of cheaply produced liquor were "creating a social problem among the lower-income group".
More than 60 percent of Malaysians are Muslim, and Islam - which bans alcohol consumption - is the official religion.
Malaysia has some of Asia's highest excise taxes on alcohol, according to the Confederation of Malaysian Brewers.
But it also has large ethnic Chinese and Indian minorities, a bustling bar and restaurant scene and widely available alcoholic beverages.
Various public-health studies have suggested that drinking rates have been rising.
The brewer's confederation says Malaysia has an estimated drinking population of 3.5 million people, out of a population of around 30 million.
Malaysia generally practises a moderate brand of Islam. But religious tensions have simmered in recent years, with Muslim moderates and followers of other religions expressing concern at a steady rise of increasingly conservative Islamic attitudes.
