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. Habeco, Carlsberg deal not yet finalised: officials
At a meeting held yesterday between the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Prime Minister’s working group, officials said that it would take a while to complete the deal due to its complexity and its involvement of other ministries and sectors.
“Habeco and Carlsberg have discussed the deal, however, the two sides have not come to a final agreement yet,” Dung said. “The negotiation was quite complicated and we need to handle it carefully.”
"The sale of the State’s stake in Habeco must be transparent and based on market rules. It requires a lot of time and procedures," he said.
The department has sent a request to the Ministry of Justice for consultancy on the contract between Habeco and Carlsberg, the official said.
According to the strategic co-operation agreement between the two companies, Carlsberg is obliged to support Habeco in its development. In return, the Danish brewer can be prioritised to purchase Habeco’s strategic shares in case the MoIT decides to sell its stake to a strategic partner.
Hebeco was traded on the Unlisted Public Company Market (UPCoM) with code BHN and the company was now finalising the proposal to be listed on the HCM Stock Exchange, where the Sai Gon Beer, Alcohol and Beverage Corporation (Sabeco) has recently completed its process for trading, Dung added.
The two local brewers were expected to be traded on the stock market by December 20 and their trading prices would be used for selling the State’s stakes in those firms, he said.
The Minister of Industry and Trade Tran Tuan Anh said that some other ministries and sectors had their stakes in the two brewers. “The deals cannot be speeded up” and “careful steps must be taken” to assure the Government receives a sufficient return and the companies will be able to retain their brand names.
The MoIT now owns nearly 81.8 per cent of Habeco’s chartered capital on behalf of the Government and Carlsberg owns nearly 17.1 per cent. However, the percentage of floating shares is just nearly 1 per cent, equal to 2.3 million shares. Total State’s capital in Habeco to be sold this year is about VND9 trillion (US$400 million).
