Defence 2014: A review of South Africa's defence industry Defence 2014: A review of South Africa's defence industry Has PDF
Published: 15 Oct 14
South Africa’s defence industry has sophisticated manufacturing capabilities and it has been at the forefront of many significant defence developments locally and internationally. The industry has a high level of State involvement in terms of acquisitions and production, with the largest manufacturer of defence equipment in the country being State-owned Denel. There are also a number of private-sector companies active in the market, with several having strong links to international defence manufacturers. Some companies that are active in South Africa’s defence industry are specifically focused on defence-related activities, while others are also active in nondefence markets, having diversified from defence into other markets, or having diversified from civilian activities into defence. Creamer Media’s Defence 2014 report examines South Africa’s defence industry, with particular focus on the key participants in the sector, the innovations that have come out of the sector, local and export demand, South Africa’s controversial multibillion-rand strategic defence procurement package, diversification in the sector and the outlook for South Africa’s defence industry in light of current levels of local defence spending, which have contributed to the defence force being in a “critical state of decline”.
Road and Rail 2014: A review of South Africa's road and rail infrastructure Road and Rail 2014: A review of South Africa's road and rail infrastructure Has PDF
Published: 18 Aug 14
The state of a country’s transport infrastructure is a key determinant of the performance and growth of its economy, as well as of the social and economic opportunities available to that country’s population. South Africa is investing substantially in its transport infrastructure, as the general impression is that the condition of road and rail infrastructure in the country has been in decline for several years. Creamer Media’s Road and Rail 2014 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 network, the funding and maintenance of these respective networks, and the push to move road freight back onto rail.

There have been some improvements in global economic conditions over the past few months, with the US set to grow at a better pace in 2014 than has been the case in the years following the global economic crisis. Few economic commentators are anticipating a hard landing for the Chinese economy, although it remains an outside risk, while Europe appears set to continue its slow recovery. The outlook for much of the rest of Africa, meanwhile, is for continued strength and resilience, although this growth is off a low base and is being achieved amid concerns about whether the benefits are being shared widely enough. By contrast, economic prospects for South Africa are poor, with some commentators warning that Africa’s most developed – albeit no longer the biggest – economy is running a very real risk of retreating into recession again for the first time since 2009. This edition evaluates the performance and outlook for a variety of sectors, including automotive, construction, electricity, road and rail, steel, water, coal, gold, iron-ore and platinum. The Real Economy Year Book has also been divided into individual reports under the aforementioned sectors under the banner Real Economy Insight. They are available on Creamer Media’s Research Channel Africa website and Creamer Media’s store.

Steel 2014: A review of South Africa's steel sector Steel 2014: A review of South Africa's steel sector Has PDF
Published: 11 Apr 14
Globally, the steel industry has enjoyed a decade of unprecedented growth, fuelled by the expansion of developing economies, particularly the industrialisation and urbanisation of China. The demand for infrastructure, such as buildings, roads and railway lines, has resulted in global per capita steel consumption tripling from 150 kg/capita to 450 kg/capita in the past decade and production increasing to 3.5% in 2013. However, the steel industry is moving into a lower growth phase as the Chinese economy matures, following a period of steel-intensive, infrastructure-led growth. In South Africa, output remains lower than the 7.5-million tonnes it produced in 2011 and significantly lower than the peak of 9.7-million tonnes in 2006. Steel demand has grown at 1% a year over the past 20 years, but since 2007, demand has been contracting, on average, by 5% a year. Creamer Media’s Steel 2014 report provides an overview of the global steel industry and particularly of South Africa’s steel sector over the past year, including details of production and consumption, as well as the country's primary carbon steel and stainless steel producers.
