Defence 2017: A review of South Africa's defence sector Defence 2017: A review of South Africa's defence sector Has PDF
Published: 14 Dec 17
Following the passing of the Defence Review by Parliament in June 2015, the South African government has continued to espouse its commitment to supporting the local defence industry, with the establishment of the South African National Defence Industry Council in March 2016. Through the Defence Review, government has recognised the importance of the industry in stimulating high-technology development, manufacturing activities and job creation. It has, moreover, indicated its intent to harness the potential of the industry to ensure that the South African National Defence Force is adequately equipped and trained to conduct its duties. However, despite explicit governmental recognition of the importance of the sector, low levels of domestic spending continues to be a key challenge for defence companies. Creamer Media’s Defence 2017 report examines key developments in South Africa’s defence industry, with particular focus on key participants, innovations in the sector, local and export demand, international collaboration and corporate activities, and the outlook for the country’s defence industry in light of current levels of local defence spending.
Coal 2017: A review of South Africa's coal sector Coal 2017: A review of South Africa's coal sector Has PDF
Published: 07 Dec 17
The South African mining industry has had a tough 2017 – a year of uncertainty and questions about the sustainability of the sector, as policy and regulatory concerns are stalling new investment. A downturn in the global coal industry has also affected investment in South African coal mines, as many of the large producers and exporters have embarked on a global reassessment of their coal strategies. There is also investor pressure on companies holding significant carbon resources. Creamer Media’s Coal 2017 report examines South Africa’s coal industry with regard to the business environment, the main participants, local demand, coal exports and coal logistics, projects being undertaken by the large and smaller participants, as well as various issues affecting the sector, including labour issues and environmental considerations.

Australia Mining Projects in Progress 2017 Australia Mining Projects in Progress 2017 Has PDF
Published: 21 Nov 17
Mining has been the driving force behind much exploration in Australia’s remote inland and its industrial development – from the gold rush in the nineteenth century, and the iron-ore and nickel booms of the 1960s to the later expansion of the coal industry. Mining comprises about 10% of Australia’s gross domestic product. Currently, the Australian mining industry is on the verge of a new mining boom, based on so-called tech metals. However, Australia's mining sector is awash in red tape, with overlapping legislation and replication between state and federal governments creating significant obstacles to the industry’s development. Mining companies prospecting, investing and pursuing new mining opportunities spend a considerable amount of time and money dealing with bureaucracy – eliminating this in mining, particularly the project approval process, is, therefore, crucial to take the growth and prosperity of Australia’s mining sector forward.

Telecoms 2017: A review of South Africa's telecommunications sector Telecoms 2017: A review of South Africa's telecommunications sector Has PDF
Published: 03 Nov 17
The global telecommunications market has undergone considerable change in the past few years, with a shift in the importance of various services – from fixed, wired networks to mobile networks, and from voice services to data services. The shift has also been prevalent in the South African market, where mobile services revenue has overtaken that of fixed-line services, and demand for high-speed, affordable data is expanding rapidly. Creamer Media’s Telecoms 2017 report reviews South Africa’s telecommunications market and the major companies operating in the sector. The report provides information on the country’s voice and data communications, network investments, international connectivity and corporate activity in the sector. It also provides an overview of policy and regulatory developments in the sector.
Diamonds 2017: A review of Southern Africa's diamond sector Diamonds 2017: A review of Southern Africa's diamond sector Has PDF
Published: 30 Oct 17
The diamond industry has faced much volatility in recent years and, although there were signs of improving market conditions in 2016 and so far in 2017, some uncertainty remains. Some market analysts questioned whether the industry has reached peak supply and point to the unlikelihood of mining companies finding any further large diamond deposits. Many believe that the best resources have been discovered. Miners worldwide, however, continue to explore for new deposits, and the biggest miners are also investing in expansion projects while smaller miners are working to bring new mines into production. Creamer Media’s Diamond 2017 report provides an overview of the world diamond market, which includes a look at rough diamond production, supply and demand, imports and exports, and synthetic diamonds. The report emphasises diamond mining activities in South Africa over the past 12 months, and provides information on the country’s major and midtier diamond producers, junior diamond mining companies, explorers and developers.

Projects in Progress 2017 (Second Edition) Projects in Progress 2017 (Second Edition) Has PDF
Published: 29 Sep 17
South Africa’s project economy continues to tick over, albeit at an uninspiring pace. Some State-owned enterprises, such as Transnet, have confirmed a significant pull-back in investment plans, while private fixed investment remains under pressure as a result of weak economic growth and ongoing policy uncertainty, particularly in the mining industry. Nevertheless, Creamer Media’s second Projects in Progress supplement for this year includes valuable updates on and insights into some of the largest fixed investment programmes under way in South Africa.
