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.

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. It is clear that the construction industry is continuing to struggle. The outlook for 2016 is not optimistic, with analysts forecasting a further weakening in construction activity. Creamer Media’s Construction 2016 Report examines South Africa’s construction industry over the past 12 months. The report provides insight into the business environment; key participants; local demand; geographic diversification; corporate activity; black economic empowerment; competition; the sector’s shortage of skills, which threatens to derail government’s plans to spend R4-trillion on infrastructure over the next 15 years; safety issues and environmental considerations.
