Liquid Fuels 2014: A review of South Africa's liquid fuels sector Liquid Fuels 2014: A review of South Africa's liquid fuels sector Has PDF
Published: 11 Dec 14
Despite South Africa’s oil and gas deposits, its current fuel-refining capacity is insufficient to meet local demand for liquid fuel products, and the shortfall is being met through imported refined products. In recent years, the country has become increasingly dependent on imported petrol and diesel. In 2013, four-billion litres of diesel and 1.2-billion litres of petrol were imported; and it has been estimated that, by 2020, South Africa will have to import 180 000 bbl/d of petrol and diesel if there is no significant investment in local refining capacity. This has made South Africa an attractive prospect to energy groups involved in importing the fuel.
Water 2014: A review of South Africa's water sector Water 2014: A review of South Africa's water sector Has PDF
Published: 08 Dec 14
As the world’s most valuable resource, water and its preservation are becoming increasingly important, with various industries noticing the scarcity of this resource. Without water, industrial activities and agricultural activities cannot take place – directly affecting the economic growth of every country. While growing water scarcity is being highlighted throughout the media and in many different industries, the challenge lies in the correct management of the resource. A multitude of factors are impacting on the water sector at global and State level, including funding constraints, climate change, lack of institutional capacity, political issues and insufficient numbers of suitably skilled water professionals. Creamer Media’s Water 2014 Report considers the aforementioned issues, not only in the South African context, but also in the African and global context, and examines the issues of water and sanitation, water quality and the demand for water, besides others.
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.
Real Economy Year Book 2014 Real Economy Year Book 2014 Has PDF
Published: 10 Jul 14
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.
