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. Tamil Nadu government plans to shut 1,000 more Tasmac shops
With protests like the vocal one in Foreshore Estate demanding closure of a Tasmac shop located in a residential area gaining momentum, the state government asked officials to compile a list of shops that are located in proximity to educational institutions, temples, hospitals and public places like bus stands and bus terminuses.
Once officials complete the process of identifying shops and a report is sent, the government is likely to announce closure of 1,000 shops in the next couple of months. A formal announcement in this regard is expected during the Budget Session of the Tamil Nadu Assembly, which is expected to convene during this month.
Sources said the shops near these places would be the first to shut down once the top brass receive the report. Since the government is receiving complaints from various quarters about Tasmac shops creating trouble, it is understood that it was decided to close shops located in proximity to public places.
If the government shuts down 1,000 shops in addition to the 500 shops which were closed on June 19, the number of liquor shops in the state would come down to around 5,300.
Chief Minister .J Jayalalithaa had promised staggered prohibition in Tamil Nadu during her campaign for the May 16 Assembly elections and reduced the working hours of Tasmac by two hours on the day she assumed office again on May 23.
Once an additional 1,000 shops are closed, the government is expected to incur heavier losses.
