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. ...
Sabeco, Vietnam’s biggest brewer, to list on HOSE in December
The shares will start trading at 110,000 dong. Currently, Sabeco's shares are trading off-exchange at 130,000 dong, making the market value of the company 83.4 trillion dong ($3.6 billion).
Sabeco has charter capital of 6.4 trillion dong, equivalent to more than 641 million shares. Vietnam's Ministry of Industry and Trade holds a 89.59% stake in Sabeco, while Heineken has 5%.
Analysts speculated that the small amount of current floating shares will push the price up after the listing. The government's plans to sell a 53.6% stake in Sabeco this year and the remaining 36% stake next year following the divestment progress would make the shares more attractive to investors.
The main bourse listing process was sped up by the company and relevant authorities after Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc put the company's divestment under direct supervision of his cabinet.
Sabeco is the largest beer producer in Vietnam with 1.38 billion liters a year and held a 41% market share last year, followed by Heineken (729 million liters, 21.6% market share), and Hanoi Beer Alcohol Beverage, known as Habeco (668 million liters, 19.8% market share), according to the Vietnam Beverage Association.
In the first nine months of 2016, Sabeco's revenue grew 9% to 21.8 trillion dong, and its pre-tax profit was 4.5 trillion dong, up 21% year on year, meeting 108% of the full-year target. Net profit increased 23% to 3.5 trillion dong. The company's total assets were 22.7 trillion dong as of October.
Beer consumption in Vietnam reached 3.8 billion liters in 2015, and the industry expects annual growth of 4% to 5% for the next five years.
Local newspapers cited officials from Vietnam's Ministry of Industry and Trade saying that both Sabeco and Habeco have to list their shares on stock exchanges by the year-end, following the government's withdrawal plans from the two largest state-owned beer producers, in the market of over 93 million people.
Habeco, owned 82% by the state, launched its debut in 2008. It also plans to list on the HOSE next month. Habeco's shares closed at 100,000 dong on Thursday, double the price on its listing day on Oct. 28 on Vietnam's Unlisted Public Company Market.
Both Sabeco and Habeco stocks are expected to be on the list of stocks which have daily major impacts on the VN-Index after being listed on the HOSE.
