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.

Base Metals 2015: A review of Africa's base metals sectors Base Metals 2015: A review of Africa's base metals sectors Has PDF
Published: 16 Oct 15
The outlook for base metals is not particularly encouraging, given the continuing strengthening of the dollar and slowing economic growth in China. Advisory services firm Moody’s stated in September 2015 that a perceived sharper-than-expected slowing of the Chinese economy, limited supply response from commodity producers, overcapacity in global steel markets, reduced energy costs and a strong US dollar were creating unprecedented adverse conditions for base metals, driving prices down to levels close to those achieved in the 2008/9 financial crisis, but with drawn-out recovery prospects. Moody’s states that there is little impetus to materially reverse the recent slide in base metals prices, which it expects to remain in the lower ranges for a relatively long timeframe. In light of these developments, Creamer Media’s Base Metals 2015 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.
Input Sector Review: Pumps 2015 Input Sector Review: Pumps 2015 Has PDF
Published: 09 Oct 15
South Africa has an established pumps industry that is considered to be well equipped and highly professional. The quality of pumps produced locally is of a high standard, with several local manufacturers producing pumps in accordance with international standards. Further, it is believed that South Africa can manufacture pumps economically. There are more than 100 companies active in the local market. About half of these companies manufacture locally, although many of them specialise in a certain range of products while importing others because it is more cost effective. The balance of the companies engage entirely in the supply of imported products. Some local pump manufacturers are private entities, producing pumps from their own design. Others produce from their own design, and manufacture locally and elsewhere, while others manufacture locally, but under licence to international operators. Creamer Media’s 2015 Input Sector Review on Pumps provides an overview of South Africa’s pumps industry with particular focus on pump manufacture and supply, aftermarket services, marketing strategies, local and export demand, imports, sector support, investment corporate activity, regulatory requirements, availability of materials and skills, electricity and environmental considerations, as well as innovations in the sector.
