Real Economy Yearbook 2019 Real Economy Yearbook 2019 Has PDF
Published: 01 Jul 19
It has been a difficult time to be a South African over the past few years and doubly so if you happen to be a South African businessperson. ​​​​​​​ Social cohesion has weakened, government has underperformed across all three spheres, unemployment and poverty remain at extreme levels, crime and violence are constant threats, the nation’s finances have become increasingly fragile, business confidence has all but flatlined and load-shedding has remained a real and present danger. What has worried business people the most, however, has been the poor performance of the economy, which, at best, has put a squeeze on profits and, at worst, resulted in confidence sapping business failures. This weakness was epitomised by South Africa’s alarming 3.2% economic contraction in the first quarter of this year and is also reflected in this year’s edition of the Real Economy Yearbook. Nevertheless, there are a few weak signals that reforms are under way, which, if strengthened, could improve the outlook materially and lift the mood.

Road & Rail 2019: A review of South Africa's road and rail sector Road & Rail 2019: A review of South Africa's road and rail sector Has PDF
Published: 23 May 19
While the South African government continues to invest billions of rands in its transport networks, there remains a large funding gap that needs to be filled so that the country has sufficient capacity to meet demand. However, public funding is stretched and insufficient to cover all expansion and maintenance requirements. This has placed the country’s national roads agency in a difficult position in terms of how it funds new infrastructure, while road congestion remains a significant problem, especially in the metropolitan areas, with road users sometimes spending as much as three hours a day in traffic. Government is advocating that more people use public transport rather than their own vehicles to limit the impact of increasing vehicle ownership on South Africa's roads, as well as the resultant carbon emissions. Further, government is advocating for more freight to be moved onto the rail network, but massive investment is also needed in the freight rail system to ensure adequate capacity and performance. Creamer Media’s Road and Rail 2019 Report considers these 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.
Steel 2019: A review of South Africa's steel sector Steel 2019: A review of South Africa's steel sector Has PDF
Published: 16 May 19
The $900-billion-a-year global steelmaking industry continues to have excess capacity, putting many producers under pressure. The installed steelmaking capacity, which totalled 1.66-billion tonnes in 2018, exceeds demand by more than 500-million tonnes and this trend is expected to continue. The Global Forum on Steel Excess Capacity has stated that it expects the significance of the gap between steelmaking capacity and demand to continue, and to threaten the industry’s long-term viability for many years. In this context, Creamer Media’s Steel 2019 Report examines the global steel industry over the past 12 months and provides insight, particularly into South Africa’s steel sector, including production and consumption, steel prices, import protection and the impact of US steel tariffs.

Projects in Progress 2019 (First Edition) Projects in Progress 2019 (First Edition) Has PDF
Published: 03 May 19
It is no secret that South Africa’s construction sector is in an extremely perilous state. The decline in workflow and the squeeze on margins have left large and small construction companies struggling for survival. Some of the country’s biggest firms have applied for business rescue while others have sold or are planning to sell their South African general construction divisions to focus on global niche markets, such as mining, or infrastructure opportunities abroad. This unsupportive environment has been made all the more hostile, as several construction sites have become targets for criminality and violence. These difficulties are partially reflected in this Projects in Progress supplement, with very few new projects being featured. Amid the gloom, however, there are a few behind-the-scenes developments that, if successful, could offer hope.
