Steel 2017: A review of South Africa's steel sector Steel 2017: A review of South Africa's steel sector Has PDF
Published: 08 Feb 17
While 2015 was considered an annus horribilis for the global steel industry, with the price of the alloy falling to its lowest level since 2004 and consequently causing several steel producers to cut capacity or simply close shop, there was a slight recovery in 2016 and the industry seems to be on the mend going into 2017. Still, the problem of supply exceeding demand is expected to persist. Creamer Media’s Steel 2017 Report examines South Africa’s steel industry over the past 12 months. The report provides insight into the global steel market and particularly into South Africa’s steel sector, and covers production and consumption, main producers and a brief overview of the global and local stainless steel market.
Construction 2017: A review of South Africa's construction sector Construction 2017: A review of South Africa's construction sector Has PDF
Published: 03 Feb 17
The low-growth forecast for the South African economy does not bode well for the short-term prospects of the local construction industry, although the medium- to long-term outlook appears more favourable. The International Monetary Fund has forecast economic growth of less than 1% for the country in 2017, while the National Treasury has pegged its growth estimate at 1.3% for the year, improving to 2% in 2018 and 2.2% in 2019. Nonetheless, government infrastructure investment programmes are expected to continue over the medium term, despite pressure on public capital expenditure, owing to fiscal concerns. Substantial investments are expected in energy, transport, housing, water and sanitation. The bleak outlook for economic growth will continue to weigh on private-sector project investments. However, construction activity is expected to increase, although at a subdued pace. Creamer Media’s Construction 2017 Report examines South Africa’s construction industry over the past 12 months. The report provides insight into the business environment, key participants, local demand, international expansion, competition and industry settlement activities, corporate activity of the country’s major construction companies, and issues such as the shortage of skills and safety issues.

While the African continent remains “a treasure trove” of metals and minerals, with some of the last unexplored mineral tenements on earth, investment is needed in new exploration projects to ensure the long-term sustainability of its mining sectors. Further, Deloitte Emerging Markets & Africa MD Dr Martyn Davies said in November 2016 during a webcast precursor to the 2017 edition of the Investing in African Mining Indaba: “Bold, progressively minded leadership is what is . . . required for Africa to unlock its full potential in the mineral resources sphere.” Given this setting, the second edition of Creamer Media’s Africa Mining Projects in Progress 2016 showcases some of the many mining projects across the continent that are progressing, despite the sector facing many challenges, including the difficulty of raising capital, as well as socioeconomic and regulatory challenges.

Telecoms 2016: A review of South Africa's telecommunications sector Telecoms 2016: A review of South Africa's telecommunications sector Has PDF
Published: 10 Nov 16
The South African telecommunications industry has grown into a multibillion-rand business, generating revenue of R147‑billion in 2015 and providing employment for about 31 000 people. In line with global trends, the country’s telecommunications industry is constantly changing, as consumer and business users require more bandwidth and processing speed. Network operators are focusing on meeting this demand, which is reflected in major capital investments in infrastructure. Further, to help bridge the digital divide, the Department of Telecommunications and Postal Services has released a National Integrated Information and Communications Technology Policy White Paper, which details how government plans to provide access to modern communications infrastructure and services for all citizens. Creamer Media’s Telecoms 2016 report reviews South Africa’s telecommunications market and the major companies operating in the sector. The report provides information on the country’s voice and data communications, network investments, international connectivity and corporate activity in the sector. It also provides an overview of policy and regulatory developments in the sector, among other aspects.

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.
