Manufacture and Wholesale of Metal Fasteners in South Africa

South Africa is Africa’s largest exporter of metal fasteners, including rivets, tacks, pins, staples, washers, nuts, bolts, and screws. Key end users include the mining, automotive manufacturing, construction, rail, energy, agriculture and manufacturing industries. Factors such as the impact of the pandemic, poor economic growth and high input costs continue to have a significant impact on the performance of the metal fasteners manufacturing and wholesale industry.

Protection

The imposition of safeguard duties on imports of various types of metal fasteners over the past few years has caused demand for locally-manufactured fasteners to increase, according to industry players. During 2020 and 2021, safeguard duties were imposed on imported iron or steel bolts with hexagon heads and fully threaded screws with hexagon heads.

Global Trends

As most countries recover from the impact of the pandemic, demand for fasteners is growing in most industries, but there are problems on the supply side. Steel plants have been slow to come back online, causing a global deficit that led to ongoing higher steel prices, and as steel production increases, prices of input materials like iron ore, coking coal and steel scrap are also rising due to higher demand. Many fastener manufacturers are not accepting orders because they cannot secure steel supplies. There is a global shortage of shipping containers, which has caused a surge in freight costs.
