Automotive 2020: A review of South Africa's automotive sector Automotive 2020: A review of South Africa's automotive sector Has PDF
Published: 05 Jun 20
Prior to the Covid-19 Level 5 lockdown, announced in March 2020, the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa expected the declining trend in new-vehicle sales to continue in 2020, as the macroeconomic environment remained weak. New-vehicle sales in South Africa have been declining for a number of years, and 2019 was no exception, with 536 611 units sold, compared with 552 227 units sold in 2018. With gross domestic product growth forecast at only 0.80%, the association said before the Covid-19 outbreak that vehicle sales were likely to deteriorate further to 525 500 units in 2020. These figures are expected to trend substantially lower in the current Covid-19 environment. Creamer Media’s Automotive 2020 Report examines the current market conditions in South Africa’s automotive industry, including manufacturing and investment, sector support, transformation and labour, as well as the outlook for the sector.

The May 2020 roundup covers activities in April 2020, and includes details of State-owned electricity producer Eskom’s plans to implement so-called ‘philosophy maintenance’ as a centralised project across its unreliable coal fleet; the South African Photovoltaic Industry Association’s letter to President Cyril Ramaphosa; and details of Eskom’s proposal to repurpose three coal-fired power stations that are scheduled to cease producing electricity between 2022 and 2026.
Electricity 2020: A review of South Africa's electricity sector Electricity 2020: A review of South Africa's electricity sector Has PDF
Published: 30 Apr 20
Engulfed in an electricity crisis that has pushed South Africa’s economy into its second recession in two years, the country is proceeding to fundamentally restructure the industry to secure the supply of reliable, affordable and, ultimately, sustainable energy. Prior to South Africa's Covid-19 lockdown, which started on March 27, 2020, South Africans had been warned to brace for more frequent load-shedding until at least mid-2021, as planned maintenance on the Eskom coal-fired fleet could no longer be deferred. Solutions to the power crisis have been widely debated. The so-called war room to solve Eskom’s operational and financial issues has been revived. Government is also forging ahead with a plan to split the utility into separate generation, distribution and transmission businesses under a State holding company. Further, President Cyril Ramaphosa has committed to scale up generation capacity from outside State-owned power utility Eskom, whose aged and overworked power stations cannot provide enough for uninterrupted electricity supply. Creamer Media’s Electricity 2020 Report provides an overview of South Africa’s electricity sector, with a focus on Eskom’s restructuring, generation performance and new build programme, as well as issues of coal management and the company’s financial performance. It also covers the changing electricity landscape, the role of independent power producers and embedded generation in the country’s energy mix, as well as transmission, distribution and electrification, besides others.

Construction 2020: A review of South Africa's construction sector Construction 2020: A review of South Africa's construction sector Has PDF
Published: 30 Mar 20
Stagnant economic growth and limited investment in new infrastructure in South Africa in recent years have taken a toll on the construction majors, some of which are in business rescue and have been forced to sell or close down operations. Others continue to restructure and rightsize their operations to better match market demand, putting further pressure on South Africa's already high unemployment rate. Construction companies also face the prospect of financial ruin, as a result of coordinated attacks on their projects and operations by a growing number of racketeers. In this context, Creamer Media’s Construction 2020 Report examines South Africa’s construction industry over the past 12 months. The report provides insight into the business environment in the construction sector, key participants, local demand, corporate activity of the country’s major construction companies and issues, such as transformation, employment and the dearth of skills in the sector, as well as safety.
Africa Mining Pip 2020 – First Edition Africa Mining Pip 2020 – First Edition Has PDF
Published: 12 Mar 20
Africa currently offers a very compelling mining proposition, with several excellent prospects in many parts of the continent, including gold projects in West Africa; the solid momentum building in the East African corridor, particularly in Tanzania and Ethiopia; and even advances in Eritrea, which has recently opened its doors to mining investment. However, while mining prospects are undeniably very positive across the continent, opening and operating a mine comes with a set of fairly unique risks. The first edition of Creamer Media's Africa Mining Pip 2020 considers these in the context of several selected projects that have been announced over the past 12 months.

Defence 2020: A review of South Africa's defence sector Defence 2020: A review of South Africa's defence sector Has PDF
Published: 11 Feb 20
The South African defence landscape, driven by a shifting political landscape, has changed significantly since the country became a democracy. A shrinking local acquisition budget, and limited funding for research and development have contributed to a decline in the industry’s predominance. The country’s defence industry, once a behemoth – employing 130 000 people, including 10% of the country’s engineers and scientists – is now small, employing about 15 000 people. However, the South African government continues to espouse its commitment to supporting the local defence industry, which currently contributes about only 0.47% of gross domestic product. Creamer Media’s Defence 2020 report examines key developments in South Africa’s defence industry, with particular focus on key participants, innovations in the sector, local and export demand, international collaboration, and the outlook for the country’s defence industry in light of current levels of local defence spending.
