Steel 2016: A review of South Africa's steel sector Steel 2016: A review of South Africa's steel sector Has PDF
Published: 01 Mar 16
There appears to be agreement among many commentators that 2016 will be another tough year for the steelmaking industry, with demand for the alloy poised to decline further as growth in the world’s major economies, including China, continues to slow and Chinese exports continue to penetrate foreign markets, dragging prices down. Locally, steel construction industry representative organisation the Southern African Institute of Steel Construction CEO Paolo Trinchero predicts that the steel construction industry will survive 2016, owing to several years of resilience and persistence by local steel fabrication companies through challenging times. He add, however, that large-scale stimulation is needed to grow the South African steel industry and market, as the industry has recently been fulfilling only small orders for various projects as a means of simply obtaining work and surviving. Creamer Media’s Steel 2016 Report examines South Africa’s steel industry over the past 12 months. The report provides insight into the global steel market and and particularly into South South Africa’s steel sector, including production and consumption, main producers and a brief overview of the stainless steel market.

Conditions were challenging for the South African construction industry in 2015, owing to the lack of recovery in the economy and low national infrastructure spend, coupled with overcapacity in the construction market and low margins.

Africa hosts the world’s largest mineral reserves of platinum, gold, diamonds, chromite, manganese and vanadium. It also produces about 17% of the world’s uranium. The continent’s growth in the past has mostly been propelled by exaggeratedly high prices for these commodities, driven by Chinese demand for natural resources. “The commodities boom was a period of significant investment and growth, as mining companies focused on output at any cost to take advantage of the high commodity-price environment. However, the higher prices concealed the impact of falling productivity in the mining sector,” multinational services firm EY mining and metals sector leader Wickus Botha states. The recent economic slump in the commodities market has resulted in restricted growth, not only in Africa but also worldwide, with mines now consolidating their existing assets rather than expanding operations, he adds. In addition to plummeting commodity prices, rapid political and economic changes in many African States have made it increasingly difficult for many of them to attract miners, explorers and the prospective financiers that help drive their economies. Creamer Media’s second edition of its African Mining Projects in Progress 2015 report tracks project developments taking place across various mining sectors on the continent, including coal, copper, gold, iron-ore, platinum and uranium.
Water 2015: A review of South Africa's water sector Water 2015: A review of South Africa's water sector Has PDF
Published: 09 Nov 15
The World Economic Forum’s ‘2015 Global Risk Report’ has named water crises the world’s greatest risk. The world is forecast to face a 40% shortfall in water supplies in 15 years, owing to population growth, urbanisation and increased demand for food production, energy and industry. Climate change also increases water-related risks. Ranked among the world’s 30 driest countries, South Africa is facing serious water challenges. Water infrastructure is ageing, technical skills are in short supply and demand patterns are shifting, while changing rainfall patterns are leading to inadequate supply in several areas. Vandalism and theft of public infrastructure, the nonpayment of bills, wastage through a lack of maintenance, poor water services planning and prioritisation at many municipalities, as well as increasing pollution, are further impacting on water supply. Creamer Media’s Water 2015 Report considers the aforementioned issues, not only in the South African context but also in the African and global context in terms of supply and demand, water stress and insecurity, and access to water and sanitation, besides others.
