The market of import beer in Russia: review and databasesThe market of import beer is rapidly growing and changing. But while in the past years it was growing due to brands variety, in 2019 major and affordable brands from TOP-10 were developing actively. It seems that the fact of a brand origin from far abroad counties, even if it is not well known but has moderate price and good distribution provides for million liters of sales in the territory of Russia. Among distributors AB InBev Efes was far behind, yet the role of Baltika and suppliers of the second row got more important. The boom of German brands was followed by stagnation of import from other traditional regions (and Belarus) instead the supplies from Mexico, Lithuania and Asian countries grew considerably.
CHINA BREW CHINA BEVERAGE 2020 is planned to take place as scheduled
The outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has strongly impacted developments worldwide. Stephen Lu, Chief Operating Officer Messe Muenchen Shanghai, explains: “We are taking the spread of the Coronavirus very seriously and have been monitoring the local situation closely. Based on the current developments in China, we are confident that the conditions for holding the trade fair are in order.” After intense communication with the exhibitors, Petra Westphal, Exhibition Group Director Messe München, believes that “despite the current uncertainties, the importance of our trade fair remains intact. Maybe even more than before. Especially in these times, a leading trade fair like the CBB is extremely important for the Asian beverage industry to stimulate the market.”
This is underlined, among others, by Endress+Hauser (China) Automation, Husky Injection Molding Systems, Kieselmann, Krones and Ziemann Holvrieka Asia. The companies report that their Chinese offices are fully working again and the planning process for participating at CBB is in full progress. The Krones AG is “looking forward to being a part of this year’s CBB, because meeting face-toface is really important – and the CBB is the ideal platform for that.”
The supporting program of CBB 2020
Doemens, the internationally renowned and successful academy for training, further education and consulting for the brewing, beverage and food industry, will organize a forum, supported by the Institute for Brewing and Destillery (IBD), and the media partners Soft Drinks International (SDI) and hbMedia. Topics will range from craft and German style beer, non-alcoholic beer to tea based beverages, mineral water and water as well as packaging.
Demand for machinery and equipment is expected to remain stable
In a cautious forecast, the VDMA Food Processing and Packaging Machinery Association expects the Chinese beverage market to remain on growth course. China continues to be one of the top sales markets for suppliers of machinery and systems for the production, filling and packaging of beverages. Although China has a strong local engineering base for the food and beverage industry, the local supply is, according to the VDMA, not sufficient for the Chinese beverage producers to meet their often large-scale investment projects. Particularly in the high-performance sector, they continue to rely on imported machines, which they procure mainly from European countries. In numbers: Between 2015 and 2019 Chinese manufacturers imported packaging machinery for the beverage industry and brewery machinery worth a total of 2.8 billion euros.
CBB therefore remains an important meeting place for the industry in Asia and shows what is driving the industry today and will drive it tomorrow.
