South Africa’s slow economic growth, a diminishing pool of construction work, increased competition and pressure by government to transform the sector are negatively affecting the country’s largest construction firms, which are facing tight liquidity, decreasing order books and margins that are under pressure. Creamer Media’s Construction 2018 Report examines South Africa’s construction industry over the past 12 months. The report provides insight into the business environment, key participants, local demand, international expansion, competition and industry settlement activities, corporate activity of the country’s major construction companies, and issues such as transformation, the shortage of skills and safety issues.

Published: 02 May 18
The acceleration of restructuring in China’s steel industry and an increasingly aggressive environmental clampdown had a significant impact on the global iron-ore industry in 2017, and according to Australia’s Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, the sector is in for a bumpy ride in 2018. Creamer Media’s Iron-Ore 2018 Report provides an overview of the global iron-ore market over the past year, with particular emphasis on supply and demand, trade and pricing. Not only does it provide information on South Africa’s iron-ore market and its major producers, but also an overview of the major global iron-ore producing companies and other significant producers.

Published: 27 Apr 18
The signing of the long-delayed agreements for 27 renewable-energy projects in April, procured by the Department of Energy in 2015, is arguably the first tangible signal that ‘Ramaphoria’ may well be starting to have positive spin-offs for the embattled domestic project economy. What is needed now is for the various obstacles blocking the investment runways in the other key sectors covered in Creamer Media's Projects in Progress 2018 (First Edition) to be progressively cleared. This will require not only policy certainty but, in some instances, also an entire overhaul of the policies that are failing to create the confidence required to stimulate the investment needed to lift South Africa from its low-growth flight path.
Automotive 2018: A review of South Africa's automotive sector Automotive 2018: A review of South Africa's automotive sector Has PDF
Published: 09 Apr 18
South African new-vehicle sales totalled 557 586 units in 2017, reversing a three-year downward trend that started in 2014, when 643 744 units were sold, followed by declines to 617 648 units and 547 547 units in 2015 and 2016 respectively. While the 2017 aggregate sales figure was significantly below the all-time high of 714 314 units posted 11 years ago, the recovery in the global economy is a cause for some optimism for the country’s automotive industry. Creamer Media’s Automotive 2018 Report examines the current market conditions in South Africa’s automotive industry with respect to local demand, trade and investment, competitiveness and sector support, environmental considerations, and the outlook for the sector.

Electricity 2018: A review of South Africa's electricity sector Electricity 2018: A review of South Africa's electricity sector Has PDF
Published: 14 Mar 18
South Africa’s main electricity supplier State-owned power utility Eskom started 2018 teetering on the brink of financial disaster, placing the country’s entire economy at risk. The parastatal, which has been embroiled in a governance crisis and allegations of undue influence in awarding contracts, is struggling to remain solvent and maintain liquidity, despite having received a 400% price increase in the past ten years. Where Eskom as recently as 2015 could not produce enough electricity to meet the demands of the industrial, commercial and residential sectors, the country now has excess capacity and electricity demand has declined. Eskom has not seen any electricity consumption growth in more than a decade, while, at the same time, the national power utility has embarked on a large, coal-fired power station expansion programme for which it has had to borrow significant amounts. Creamer Media’s Electricity 2018 Report gives an overview of South Africa’s electricity sector, with a focus on Eskom’s capacity expansion projects, financial position, governance failures and corruption allegations. It also looks at the role of independent power producers, which have attracted significant foreign investment into South Africa. The report also examines energy storage, which is increasingly becoming a reality; energy efficiency and embedded generation; as well as other areas such as transmission and distribution and electrification.
