Australia Mining Projects in Progress 2017 Australia Mining Projects in Progress 2017 Has PDF
Published: 21 Nov 17
Mining has been the driving force behind much exploration in Australia’s remote inland and its industrial development – from the gold rush in the nineteenth century, and the iron-ore and nickel booms of the 1960s to the later expansion of the coal industry. Mining comprises about 10% of Australia’s gross domestic product. Currently, the Australian mining industry is on the verge of a new mining boom, based on so-called tech metals. However, Australia's mining sector is awash in red tape, with overlapping legislation and replication between state and federal governments creating significant obstacles to the industry’s development. Mining companies prospecting, investing and pursuing new mining opportunities spend a considerable amount of time and money dealing with government bureaucracy. Cutting the unnecessary red tape on mining, particularly the project approval process, is, therefore, crucial to take the growth and prosperity of Australia’s mining sector forward.

Telecoms 2017: A review of South Africa's telecommunications sector Telecoms 2017: A review of South Africa's telecommunications sector Has PDF
Published: 03 Nov 17
The global telecommunications market has undergone considerable change in the past few years, with a shift in the importance of various services – from fixed, wired networks to mobile networks, and from voice services to data services. The shift has also been prevalent in the South African market, where mobile services revenue has overtaken that of fixed-line services, and demand for high-speed, affordable data is expanding rapidly. Creamer Media’s Telecoms 2017 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.

Published: 29 Sep 17
South Africa’s project economy continues to tick over, albeit at an uninspiring pace. Some State-owned enterprises, such as Transnet, have confirmed a significant pull-back in investment plans, while private fixed investment remains under pressure as a result of weak economic growth and ongoing policy uncertainty, particularly in the mining industry. Nevertheless, Creamer Media’s second Projects in Progress supplement for this year includes valuable updates on and insights into some of the largest fixed investment programmes under way in South Africa.
Liquid Fuels 2017: A review of South Africa's liquid fuels sector Liquid Fuels 2017: A review of South Africa's liquid fuels sector Has PDF
Published: 15 Sep 17
According to the South African Petroleum Industry Association, about 20% of the country’s fuel needs are being met by refined product imports. These are expected to continue to increase, unless significant investments are made in the country’s six refineries. Some have argued that South Africa should take advantage of the global glut of liquid fuel refining capacity and rely increasingly on fuel imports. Government contends, however, that importing fuel is not positive – neither in respect of energy security nor for the enhancement of industrialisation. It also believes that a high level of refined fuel imports exposes South Africa to foreign exchange fluctuations and could place energy security at risk. Thus, much uncertainty remains in the domestic upstream and downstream oil and gas sectors.

Water 2017: A review of South Africa's water sector Water 2017: A review of South Africa's water sector Has PDF
Published: 25 Aug 17
An estimated two-thirds of the world’s population lives in areas that have water scarcity at least once a month, with about 500-million people living in areas where water consumption far exceeds locally renewable water resources. In fact, the High Level Panel on Water warned in a statement released on March 21, 2017, that the world might face a 40% water shortfall by 2030, affecting at least 1.80-billion people. South Africa could become one of these statistics, given that it is considered to be the world’s thirtieth-driest country. According to current projections, water demand in South Africa will increase by 1% each year from 15-billion cubic metres a year in 2016 to 18-billion cubic metres in 2030, resulting in a 17% supply deficit. Already, 30% of the country’s towns and cities have a water deficit and the situation is expected to be exacerbated by the effects of climate change. 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, and the challenges that come with these issues.

Road & Rail 2017: A review of South Africa's road and rail sectors Road & Rail 2017: A review of South Africa's road and rail sectors Has PDF
Published: 04 Aug 17
South Africa’s rail network has been neglected for decades and is considered an ageing and ailing system, particularly the commuter component. Commuters are increasingly shunning rail services in favour of minibus taxis, buses or private vehicle ownership, which is accelerating rapidly, as more people are progressing into the middle class. The fast growth of road-based transport is putting infrastructure under pressure, underscoring the need to continue to invest in road projects to provide extra capacity and shift more freight from road to rail. Creamer Media’s Road and Rail 2017 considers the aforementioned issues, with a particular focus on the size and state of the country’s road and rail infrastructure, the funding and maintenance of these respective networks, and efforts to transfer road freight back onto rail.
