Base Metals 2016: A review of Africa's base metals sector Base Metals 2016: A review of Africa's base metals sector Has PDF
Published: 02 Nov 16
Given expectations of a recovery in demand in China – a major producer and consumer of base metals – many commentators seem to agree that base metals prices have now bottomed, with investor services and ratings agency Moody’s stating in August 2016 that it had revised its outlook for the global base metals industry from ‘negative’ to ‘stable’. Creamer Media’s Base Metals 2016 report examines the global base metals market, with a particular focus on supply and demand; the production of copper, zinc, nickel and lead in the African market, and on selected base metals operations and projects in Africa.

Diamonds 2016: A review of South Africa's diamond sector Diamonds 2016: A review of South Africa's diamond sector Has PDF
Published: 26 Oct 16
Although the first half of 2016 has signaled more stability in the diamond market after a turbulent 2015, volatility has become the near normal and the industry maintains a cautious outlook in the near term as significant global economic uncertainty remains. Ratings agency Moody’s believes that diamond miners will be under pressure until the end of 2016 or mid-2017, owing to a temporary supply and demand mismatch, which has resulted in lower rough diamond prices. Although, it notes that production cutbacks should help to rebalance the market. In the long term, however, a lack of new diamond discoveries and high depletion rates for existing mines should prevent a supply glut. Creamer Media’s Diamond 2016 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 2016 (Second Edition) Projects in Progress 2016 (Second Edition) Has PDF
Published: 30 Sep 16
Notwithstanding the feeble global economic condition, there is little doubt that internal dynamics, especially in the political environment, have emerged as the main constraint to growth in South Africa. These domestic pressures are weighing on confidence and, in turn, on levels of fixed investment. Those companies most exposed to the South African project economy are struggling to sustain order books, while margins have come under pressure. There has also been a concerted effort by a number of engineering contractors, in particular, to seek work elsewhere as South Africa’s project pipeline fails to live up to its earlier promise. These fragilities are apparent in this Project in Progress supplement, where very few brand new projects are featured. Nevertheless, there are still a number of developments under way across a broad range of resources and industrial subsectors. There is, however, little question that South Africa’s fixed-investment environment is nowhere near as lively as it could be in light of the country’s resources potential.
Water 2016: A review of South Africa's water sector Water 2016: A review of South Africa's water sector Has PDF
Published: 28 Sep 16
Ensuring water security is a top global priority, with the 2016 edition of the World Economic Forum’s (WEF’s) ‘Global Risks Report’ identifying water shortage as the third-greatest risk for the next ten years. South Africa could in future face disruptions in water supply akin to the load-shedding that State-owned electricity utility Eskom has had to implement in recent times. The country’s water supply challenges are the result of limited available resources, population growth of 1.3% a year and about 20 years of underinvestment in infrastructure. The situation is exacerbated by South Africa’s suffering from the proxy impacts of the El Niño and La Niña through feedback loops in the tropics, which cause extremes in weather patterns that are associated with droughts and floods. This edition of Creamer Media’s Water Report considers the aforementioned issues in not only a South African context but also an African and global context in terms of supply and demand, water stress and insecurity, and access to water and sanitation, besides others.

Liquid Fuels 2016: A review of South Africa's liquid fuels sector Liquid Fuels 2016: A review of South Africa's liquid fuels sector Has PDF
Published: 15 Jul 16
Under Operation Phakisa, an initiative launched by the South African government in 2014 to accelerate the delivery of some of the development priorities highlighted in the National Development Plan, government aims to accelerate oil and gas exploration and development. However, while considerable interest has been shown in South Africa’s liquid fuels industry, particularly in offshore exploration – following large gas discoveries off the coast of neighbouring Mozambique in recent years – potential investors are hesitant because of regulatory uncertainty, with the low oil price exacerbating the situation. Creamer Media’s Liquid Fuels 2016 report examines these issues in the context of South Africa’s business environment; oil and gas exploration and projects currently under development; fuel pricing; the development of the country’s biofuels industry; the logistics of transporting liquid fuels; and environmental considerations, including the proposed introduction of the government-gazetted Clean Fuels 2 specifications.
Road and Rail 2016: A review of South Africa's road and rail sectors Road and Rail 2016: A review of South Africa's road and rail sectors Has PDF
Published: 15 Jul 16
The South African government is striving, through its National Development Plan, to ensure that the country has an efficient, competitive and responsive infrastructure network, including transport infrastructure, which is essential to transport people and goods and, thus, support the country's economy. The Department of Transport has, for the 2016/17 financial year, budgeted R24.5-billion to spend on road transport, R19-billion on rail transport, R11.7-billion on public transport and R79-million on integrated transport planning. Many national and provincial road projects are under way, despite the challenges of funding expansion and maintenance projects. Creamer Media’s Road and Rail 2016 report examines South Africa’s road and rail transport system, with particular focus on the size and state of the country’s road and rail infrastructure, the funding and maintenance of these respective networks, and efforts to transfer road freight back onto rail.
