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. Excessive mainstream segment has declined over the recent years, yet, Zhigulevskoe and national brands with regional links have yielded their positions to a range of new products. In our review special attention was paid to regional analysis of the markets. In 14 regions of Kazakhstan we compared the companies’ positions, the market price segmentation and DIOT channel development. Besides we have compared the beer market of Kazakhstan to neighboring countries. ...

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. ...
Vietnam’s top brewer Sabeco cleared for share listing by Dec
Phan Dang Tuat, head of the Industry and Trade Ministry's enterprise renovation and development committee, told Reuters on Tuesday that Hanoi had granted approval to list shares in a firm it first earmarked for privatisation in 2008 on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange.
Known for its Bia Saigon and 333 brews, Ho Chi Minh City-based Sabeco - formally known as the Saigon Beer, Alcohol, Beverage Corp - is valued at about $2 billion by Hanoi. With 45 percent of Vietnam's beer market, its net profit jumped 27 percent in first-half 2016 to 2.39 trillion dong ($107 million).
"(Sabeco) has 10 to 12 weeks to debut, depending on the consultative contract," Tuat said, referring to Sabeco's plans to hire a consultant firm to advise on the listing. He didn't say how much of the company will be sold in the December listing plan.
The company has received expressions of interest from major foreign brewers lured by the size of the Vietnamese market, including ThaiBev, the flagship company of Bangkok's billionaire beer magnate Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi. Sabeco sold 1.52 billion litres of beer last year, up 9 percent from 2014.
But potential partners keen to tap rising consumer spending by Vietnam's fast-growing middle class have faced repeated delays in the privatisation process. Under criticism from some investors for being slow to privatise assets, the government had said in August it would fully divest from the country's two biggest brewers, Sabeco and Habeco.
That would include selling its 89.59 percent stake in Sabeco worth $1.8 billion, by the end of 2017.
The government has also said divestment in Habeco, the maker of Bia Ha Noi beer ranked third by market share after Sabeco and Dutch brewer Heineken NV, would be completed by the end of this year.
Officials at Sabeco weren't immediately available for comment.
