Published: 30 Apr 21
While a successful Covid-19 vaccine roll-out is considered as the most important driver of the recovery from the pandemic, infrastructure investment remains as urgent as ever and is increasingly viewed as key to creating forward economic momentum.  Around the world, many governments are preparing to invest trillions of dollars in new economic and social infrastructure to address backlogs and provide the basis for future economic resiliency, with some even seeing it as an opportunity to ignite this century’s own ‘roaring 20s’.  Special priority is being given to so-called green infrastructure to help countries mitigate and adapt to climate change, as well as digital infrastructure, which is seen as a key platform for generating and sustaining higher levels of future-proofed growth.  For South Africa, the social and economic infrastructure deficits are so large that it is not going to be possible for government to deliver these on its own. The fiscal stresses are not the only constraint, with all three spheres of government facing serious capacity deficiencies.

Coal 2021: What is the future of Coal? Coal 2021: What is the future of Coal? Has PDF
Published: 01 Apr 21
Coal markets had a tough 2020. Demand collapsed as the Covid-19 pandemic swept the globe, gutting energy use and shutting down industrial activity. The pandemic came at a time when coal already faced a perfect storm of fast-expanding renewables growth, cheap natural gas prices and an increasing awareness among governments and investors of the need to reduce carbon emissions. What the future holds for coal is further clouded by the fact that many financial institutions and corporates have divested from the coal energy sector, while others have committed to reducing their investment in the sector and large coal miners are retreating from thermal coal mining. Further, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called on wealthy nations to end coal use by 2030, so that the world can meet its goal of reducing global warming and end the “deadly addiction to coal”. Creamer Media’s 'Coal 2021: What is the future of coal?' report reviews developments in South Africa’s coal sector and its prospects in the energy transition era, focusing on the business environment at home and abroad; it’s main participants and some of the smaller producers in the sector; as well as environmental considerations that have come to the fore.

Telecommunications 2020/21 Telecommunications 2020/21 Has PDF
Published: 21 Jan 21
South Africa’s telecommunications landscape has undergone significant transformation over the past decade, with a shift from offering telecommunications services to a myriad of digital services that are highly dependent on data, across some of the most advanced infrastructure in Africa. Mobile subscriptions and Internet penetration continue to increase year-on-year and data consumption continues to grow. Further, commercial fifth-generation service deployments are under way and fibre networks and data centre markets are expanding rapidly to meet the growing user base. Creamer Media’s Telecommunication 2020/21 report reviews South Africa’s telecommunications market in this context focusing on the country’s major telecommunications companies, industry trends and challenges, international connectivity and policy and regulatory developments.
Hydrogen 2020/21 Hydrogen 2020/21 Has PDF
Published: 20 Jan 21
The need to drive the world's carbon emissions down has prompted widespread interest in the development of green hydrogen, with the number of policies and projects increasing rapidly worldwide. The aim is helping countries and regions to not only meet their commitments under the Paris Agreement but also recover and rebuild, following the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Creamer Media’s Hydrogen 2020/21 report delves into the global hydrogen sector, focusing on developments in South Africa and Africa, as well as the US, Europe, Asia and Australia. The emphasis of this report is primarily the potential of this sector to be a source of clean energy that will help decarbonise world economies and assist in achieving global climate change mitigation goals.

Gold 2020: A review of South Africa's gold sector Gold 2020: A review of South Africa's gold sector Has PDF
Published: 02 Dec 20
Record-high gold prices, following the economic fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic, have left miners with plenty of cash, but they seem hesitant to immediately invest that cash in expanding output for fear of repeating mistakes made during a previous boom, when some investments failed to meet expectations. However, there is also a growing realisation in the industry that investment in growing reserves has been lacking and that new deposits urgently need to be discovered to ensure the future supply of gold. Creamer Media’s Gold 2020 report reviews the global and South African gold markets in this context. Globally, the focus is on supply and demand, and gold’s remarkable performance over the past few months. In South Africa, the focus of the report turns to rising costs and energy constraints in the sector, as well as labour challenges, the settlement of an historical class action lawsuit against the country’s major gold miners, and growing criminal activity in the sector. It also reviews the major and smaller mining companies with operations in South Africa.
