Executive Summary

Jul 2019
Further price increases within alcoholic drinks

Alcoholic drinks prices continued to increase in Uzbekistan during 2018 due to higher excise rates for domestically produced drinks, with the Ministry of Finance and the State Tax Committee setting new minimum wholesale and retail prices for alcohol products. During the previous year, the same changes were applied to imported drinks.

Regulatory changes positively impact performance

In 2018, legislative measures were taken in preparation for a fundamental change in the system of control and regulation of alcoholic beverages, as well as the development of viticulture and winemaking. In particular, the government will soon establish the Viticulture Development Agency under the Ministry of Agriculture and the Inspectorate for Regulation of the Alcohol and Tobacco Market under the Ministry of Finance.

Continued protection of domestic producers

In Uzbekistan, the protectionist policy of supporting domestic producers continues, mostly through annual increases in excise taxes on imported alcohol drinks. Nevertheless, leading alcohol categories such as rum, gin, whiskies, and tequila are represented exclusively by imported brands, which are mainly sold by large retail networks like Legion and Lavini, as well as restaurants and expensive cafés.

Distribution of alcoholic drinks limited to specialists

The only off-trade distribution channels for alcoholic drinks in Uzbekistan are alcoholic drinks specialists, although some independent small grocers also sell alcoholic drinks “under the counter”. The leading alcoholic drinks retailer is the chained specialist Legion.

Positive forecast for alcoholic drinks

Over the forecast period, sales of domestically produced beer and wine are expected to be boosted by a likely relaxing of advertising restrictions. In addition, new winemaking and wine production regulations are also expected to continue to support growth.
