Automotive 2018: A review of South Africa's automotive sector Automotive 2018: A review of South Africa's automotive sector Has PDF
Published: 09 Apr 18
South African new-vehicle sales totalled 557 586 units in 2017, reversing a three-year downward trend that started in 2014, when 643 744 units were sold, followed by declines to 617 648 units and 547 547 units in 2015 and 2016 respectively. While the 2017 aggregate sales figure was significantly below the all-time high of 714 314 units posted 11 years ago, the recovery in the global economy is a cause for some optimism for the country’s automotive industry. Creamer Media’s Automotive 2018 Report examines the current market conditions in South Africa’s automotive industry with respect to local demand, trade and investment, competitiveness and sector support, environmental considerations, and the outlook for the sector.

Electricity 2018: A review of South Africa's electricity sector Electricity 2018: A review of South Africa's electricity sector Has PDF
Published: 14 Mar 18
South Africa’s main electricity supplier State-owned power utility Eskom started 2018 teetering on the brink of financial disaster, placing the country’s entire economy at risk. The parastatal, which has been embroiled in a governance crisis and allegations of undue influence in awarding contracts, is struggling to remain solvent and maintain liquidity, despite having received a 400% price increase in the past ten years. Where Eskom as recently as 2015 could not produce enough electricity to meet the demands of the industrial, commercial and residential sectors, the country now has excess capacity and electricity demand has declined. Eskom has not seen any electricity consumption growth in more than a decade, while, at the same time, the national power utility has embarked on a large, coal-fired power station expansion programme for which it has had to borrow significant amounts. Creamer Media’s Electricity 2018 Report gives an overview of South Africa’s electricity sector, with a focus on Eskom’s capacity expansion projects, financial position, governance failures and corruption allegations. It also looks at the role of independent power producers, which have attracted significant foreign investment into South Africa. The report also examines energy storage, which is increasingly becoming a reality; energy efficiency and embedded generation; as well as other areas such as transmission and distribution and electrification.

Uranium: A review of the uranium mining industry in Africa Uranium: A review of the uranium mining industry in Africa Has PDF
Published: 15 Dec 17
The uranium industry has continued to face challenges, as low uranium prices have persisted for the sixth consecutive year amid bear market conditions, following the Fukushima nuclear disaster, in Japan, in March 2011. The impact of this uranium market downturn has taken a toll on uranium production, with cutbacks becoming the norm as higher-priced legacy long-term contracts come to an end. Nonetheless, nuclear energy continues to expand globally, owing to its ability to deliver large amounts of reliable and constant baseload energy without carbon emissions or air pollution at competitive generating costs, compared with alternative forms of electricity. Creamer Media’s Uranium 2017 report examines the global uranium market in the context of demand, supply, pricing and market outlook, with a particular focus on the African uranium market, and the mines, projects and exploration that are under way on the continent.
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.
