Russia: Positions of Brewing Companies

The review contains an analysis of interim performance of brewers in the first half of 2019. There are rather dynamic changes behind a modest industry growth. Baltika is again experiencing a stage of volumes and market share slid due to competition with AB InBev Efes. Because of the price competition and presence expansion in the modern trade company #2. has come close to the leading position. At the same time sales of Heineken Russia have continued growing which makes the premium part of the portfolio heavier. The market premiumization trend had been also confirmed by import brands.

The market share of independent regional brewers and Ochakovo have continued falling as they are being squeezed out by the market leaders at their competitive fields.

Ukrainian beer market 2019: companies and brands

In 2019 beer production and market have been still fluctuating about zero point. However, the past season was successful for brewers judging by the sales profitability. The price mix has improved due to rapid general market premiumization, as well as its particular aspect, the growth of import beer sales. By the season end AB InBev Efes improved its positions considerably. It turned out that consumers had not forgot Efes brands that had to leave the market, but started to recover rapidly. Against the stagnating market that meant sales decline of other companies, in the first place Carlsberg Group that most of all beneficiated from Efes exiting the market. PPB turned out to be stable to branding activity of its competitor and Obolon kept the same volumes and at the moment it is the absolute leader of the economy segment. The share growth of independent producers took place thanks to leading craft breweries, that so far do not have a big market weight, but they are rapidly gaining it.

Brewing industry in Kazakhstan 2019

During the first half of 2019, the majority of Kazakh brewers made their contribution into positive dynamics. Yet it was companies of the lower division, not the two transnational leaders that raised their production and sales. The shares of draft beer and aluminum can which is rapidly squeezing glass bottle out of the market, have been growing. The price segmentation has remained stable despite the substantial rise of retail prices and fluctuations of brand market shares, while the borders between segments have become blurred. The main events in the industry have been: the announced revision of the beer excise policy, launch of BeerKhan brand in the strong beer segment, and most important – purchasing assets of Shymkentbeer by Arasan.

Creativity requires more than a standard solution

ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA at the CBC focussing on innovative brewhouse solutions

At this year’s Craft Brewers Conference in Nashville Ziemann Holvrieka will showcase its comprehensive product and service portfolio, which is particularly interesting for craft and creative brewers. The focus of the exhibition at booth 344 is on a brewhouse solution, specially developed for the requirements of the North American craft brewers. This solution is offered from a cast-out wort volume of 50 bbl. In addition, ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA will present its innovative brewing process OMNIUM, which celebrated its world premiere last year and which represents a completely new way of wort production.


Standardized and technically reduced brewhouse modules restrict the flexibility and thus the creativity of the brewmaster. Consequently, ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA offers all services and current brewhouse innovations, such as SHARK, LOTUS, COLIBRI or our whirlpool, also for plant sizes from a cast-out wort volume of 50 bbl. For the craft brewer, this means: Firstly, he operates an energy and yield optimized plant. Secondly, he benefits from the high quality and efficiency of the industrial plant manufacturing of ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA. And thirdly: he receives the highest level of flexibility and quality in what is the essential – the brewing process. Last but not least, the ZIEMANN innovations already provide the infrastructure needed to convert the brewhouse or later even the complete brewery to renewable energy sources.


The second focus of the exhibition is on OMNIUM, a completely novel brewing process. Here, the brewhouse tasks are divided into subprocesses, which are treated individually and, by subsequently combining partial flows, finally completed in an optimal way. The core component and centrepiece of OMNIUM are NESSIE, a separation and extraction system, a fractional wort boiling and hop isomerization as well as the wort saccharification with malt enzymes. Significantly shorter process times, more flexibility and higher raw material yields are the result of OMNIUM. The process also has a positive effect on the quality parameters of the wort, which accelerates the fermentation and increases both the capacity of the brewhouse and the cellar.
