Projects in Progress 2016 (First Edition) Projects in Progress 2016 (First Edition) Has PDF
Published: 10 Jun 16
There is little question that pressing ahead with South Africa’s infrastructure programme has become even more important amid the difficulties confronting the economy and key sectors such as mining and agriculture. The country’s mining industry is having to adjust to lower commodity demand and prices that are likely to remain lower for longer, while the farming sector is in distress as a result of South Africa’s worst drought in a generation. However, reigniting growth to levels required to avoid further job losses, social dissonance and the dreaded downgrade to South Africa’s investment-grade credit rating will require even higher levels of investment. Creamer Media's latest edition of the Projects in Progress supplement provides insight into some of the larger public and private projects being undertaken across South Africa, as well as selected economies in Central and West Africa, while demonstrating that serious gaps remain in progressing some important transformational projects from planning to implementation.

Platinum 2016: A review of South Africa's platinum sector Platinum 2016: A review of South Africa's platinum sector Has PDF
Published: 02 Jun 16
Lower supply of and higher demand for platinum are expected to lead to a 455 000 oz deficit in 2016, compared with the 135 000 oz deficit previously forecast, according to the World Platinum Investment Council’s latest ‘Platinum Quarterly’ report for the first quarter of this year. Global platinum supply is forecast to decrease by 1% to 7.8-million ounces this year, from 7.9-million ounces in 2015, while global demand for platinum is expected to increase “marginally” to 8.25-million ounces this year, from 8.22-million ounces in 2015. Creamer Media’s Platinum 2016 report provides a global overview of the platinum market and an outlook for the sector, with a particular focus on South Africa’s platinum-sector business environment. The report focuses on the main participants in South Africa’s platinum industry, other platinum producers, and exploration and development companies.

Automotive 2016: A review of South Africa's automotive sector Automotive 2016: A review of South Africa's automotive sector Has PDF
Published: 26 Apr 16
Figures from the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa show that 617 749 new vehicles were sold in South Africa in 2015, marking a decline of 4% on the sales recorded in 2014 and representing the second consecutive year of decline for this indicator. In March this year it indicated that it expected overall demand for new vehicles in South Africa to decline to 564 500 in 2016, almost a 9% decrease in demand from 2015. Reasons for such a decline pertain to a generally unfavourable outlook for the South African economy, with the anticipation that domestic economic growth will remain constrained in 2016 and 2017. Creamer Media’s Automotive 2016 Report provides an overview of South Africa’s automotive industry over the past 12 months. The report provides insight into local demand and production, vehicle imports and exports, investment and competitiveness in the sector, as well as environmental considerations.
Gold 2016: A review of South Africa's gold sector Gold 2016: A review of South Africa's gold sector Has PDF
Published: 22 Apr 16
The rate of growth in global gold mine production has been slowing and mine supply is expected to record its first yearly decrease since 2008 in 2016. The lower mine supply is likely to continue for several years, owing to a thinning global project pipeline, with most projects in the pipeline for 2016/17 being small or medium-sized projects. South African gold miners have, meanwhile, benefited from a strengthening rand gold price, but production is expected to continue declining, as a result of the depth of the country’s gold mines and declining grades. Gold mining companies are also faced with rising input costs, particularly higher electricity costs, and the impact of industrial action by employees. In this context, Creamer Media’s Gold 2016 report reviews the global gold market, with a particular focus on the South African gold sector, including issues such as supply, labour, and electricity shortages, as well as major and smaller mining companies with operations in South Africa.
Iron-Ore 2016: A review of the iron-ore sector Iron-Ore 2016: A review of the iron-ore sector Has PDF
Published: 14 Apr 16
The slowest pace of economic expansion in China in 25 years has dragged the price of iron-ore down. The world’s second-largest economy is expanding at a more modest rate than expected, slowing what seemed to be an unstoppable demand for the mineral at one stage. In the low price environment, only the largest- and lowest-cost producers are surviving, with iron-ore mines in China, Canada and South Africa buckling under the pressure. High-cost producers are curtailing investment, scaling back operations, cutting costs and reducing jobs to remain viable. Meanwhile, iron-ore production, notably from major low-cost suppliers in Australia and Brazil, continues to expand. This supply growth has outpaced demand growth, creating a supply glut. Thus, the year ahead is likely to be another challenging one for iron-ore producers, with supply growth expected to continue to outpace demand growth in the near term, keeping prices subdued. Also, no major stimulus is expected from the Chinese government to boost investment. Creamer Media’s Iron-Ore 2016 report provides an overview of the global iron-ore market, with particular reference to supply, demand, trade and pricing. It provides not only information on the major global iron-ore producing companies and other significant producers but also an overview of South Africa’s iron-ore market and its major producers.

Electricity 2016: A review of South Africa's electricity sector Electricity 2016: A review of South Africa's electricity sector Has PDF
Published: 09 Mar 16
South Africa’s electricity supply crisis continues to pose a major obstacle to the country’s economic growth, despite government’s investing in new power infrastructure and inviting private companies to build new generation capacity. The International Monetary Fund has singled out delays in easing electricity shortages as one of the main constraints to economic growth, while economists estimate that the economy could have been 10% larger if power shortages did not stifle growth and investment. Creamer Media’s Electricity 2016 report provides an overview of South Africa’s electricity sector, focusing on State-owned power utility Eskom and independent power producers, electricity planning, transmission, distribution and the theft thereof, besides other issues.
