    The tree care and landscaping services industry in South Africa comprises a small, well-organised formalised sector and a larger fragmented informal garden services sector. The performance of the landscaping industry is affected by economic conditions and closely allied to the performance of the property industry, and both the economy and property fundamentals remain weak. The invasion of shothole borer beetles in Gauteng, which is killing trees, has, however, led to uncharacteristic growth in the tree care sector. Drought conditions and runaway fires have increased the need for the eradication of woody alien invasive species which are water hungry and produce intense heat in a runaway fire.
  • Manufacture of Insulated Wire and Cable

    The insulated wire and cable industry in South Africa is largely dependent on infrastructure development. Reduced public sector infrastructure spending and challenges such as unstable power supply, rising input costs and a severe lack of technically trained professionals to provide cables at the same cost and quality as competing countries, is making the manufacturing environment significantly more difficult for local manufacturers. There is no confirmed value of the annual turnover of the industry, but the electrical cable market’s turnover is valued at approximately R8bn per annum.

    This report focuses on the paint industry in South Africa from 2017 to April 2019. The industry is valued at R13bn and employs approximately 15,000 people. The market is dominated by decorative paint manufacturing and sales, which account for around 80% of the market, with major players, and brands, including Kansai Plascon Africa and ICI Dulux. The paint industry in South Africa has continued to adopt manufacturing strategies to meet environmental and other regulations, including the recent move to further reduce the lead content in paint. The most significant challenges facing the industry are skills shortages and competition from cheap imports.

    The value of the South African market for medical devices was estimated at over R20bn in 2018, and it is expected to grow by 7.7% in 2019. While local manufacture continues to grow, it remains a small part of the industry, as fewer than 5% of local industry players manufacture devices. As most devices are imported, the industry is extremely sensitive to currency volatility.

    The South African motorcycle sector continues to experience declining sales as the weakening rand has caused the cost of bikes to double in the past two years and as economic conditions restrained consumer spending. Revenue of members of the Association of Motorcycle Importers and Distributors was approximately R1.42bn in 2018, down from R1.57bn in 2017. The number of registered motorcycles was 15,359 in 2018 compared to 23,304 in 2015. There are no local manufacturers, and all units and parts are imported.

    South African telecommunications operators experienced positive, if muted, growth in 2018 as total subscriptions, device ownership, internet penetration, and data usage continue to increase. The South African telecommunications sector grew by over 14% and was worth R187bn in 2018. Mobile subscriptions, device ownership, and internet penetration continues to grow and the majority of service revenue growth is due to double-digit increases in the value of data. South Africa’s fibre and data centre markets are expanding rapidly.

    South Africa’s management consulting and business advisory industry has been under growing pressure since 2017. The industry has been rocked by revelations that numerous consulting firms, including several global market leaders, have facilitated and/or been complicit in irregular activities and misdeeds, including fraud, state capture and corruption. Revelations that consultants from several multinational firms were found to be complicit have rocked the industry. The consequences of these developments, consulting expenditure cutbacks and economic conditions have affected the traditionally lucrative industry. Some role players say that knowledge management is increasingly being regarded as a potential game-changer with the advent of the fourth industrial revolution and the internet of everything.

    South Africa’s restaurant, fast food and catering sector generated revenue of R68.27bn in 2018, representing real revenue growth of 2.8%. While technology continues to disrupt the industry, particularly with the rapid growth in fast food delivery, a consumer revolution is gaining momentum. Menus are increasingly reflecting consumer demand for nutritious ingredients that are procured in a sustainable and ethical manner. Damning allegations made at the Zondo commission into state capture have placed the outsourced catering segment under the spotlight.

    IT spend in South Africa is forecast to increase at a higher pace than the economy in 2019. Although the general state of the economy has a direct impact on the growth of the ICT sector, its customers continue to invest in technology and the sector consistently shows a growth rate that is higher than GDP. Cybersecurity is a high priority, with global statistics indicating that South Africa is the third most targeted country in the world for cyber-attacks. Alleged IT-related procurement irregularities revealed through a number of commissions of inquiry and investigations continue to affect the reputation of some industry players. It is estimated that there are over 13,000 IT companies and over 3,000 electronics companies in South Africa with the vast majority being small companies employing less than 50 people.

    The furniture and appliance industry’s contribution to overall retail sales continues to contract from 5.4% of total retail sales in 2016 to 4.25%, equating to R44.48bn, in 2018. However, household furniture, appliances and equipment sales grew 10.6% in 2018 against overall retail sales growth of 2.1%, despite the fallout from the revelation of accounting irregularities at Steinhoff International in December 2017. Steinhoff owns a majority stake in Pepkor, the country’s largest furniture retailer through JD Group.

    Volumes of raw milk and other dairy products grew in 2017 and 2018 after five years of challenges including continuous decline in demand, contraction in producer numbers, low producer prices, shrinking margins and growing competition from within the sector and other beverage industries. Raw milk production increased by 2.7% in 2017 and almost 4% in 2018. Sales of UHT (long-life) milk, fermented milk product maas and packaged cheese grew strongly, but sales of butter and yoghurt declined due to high prices.

    The pharmaceutical sector, which researches, develops, markets and distributes drugs, as part of the wider healthcare system, is valued at R50bn at manufacturers’ exit price and R68bn using retail sales. The industry faces the challenge of expanding access to and affordability of drugs, on the one hand and growing South Africa’s drug manufacturing capacity on the other. The sector seeks to meet this challenge in the context of implementation of the National Health Insurance (NHI) and rapid technological developments.

    In 2017 the estimated value of purchases in the fertiliser industry was R13.8bn, representing 9.5% of total purchases in the agricultural sector, according to Statistics South Africa. South Africa remains a relatively small player internationally but it has one of the largest and most sophisticated fertiliser markets on the African continent. The fertiliser industry will be affected by the delay in the 2018/19 planting season due to drought, where it has been estimated that maize plantings reduced by 20%.

    South Africa’s two-tiered healthcare sector is supported by more than 252,650 registered practitioners providing essential services through 7,90 public healthcare facilities and 524 private healthcare facilities. Expenditure on human health activities and services exceeded R400bn in the 2017/18 financial year, with private healthcare accounting for approximately R213bn of total spend. With an allocation of 12.3% of the total budget, health expenditure represents the third largest item of consolidated state expenditure, but the public healthcare system continues to decline.

    South Africa’s accommodation industry is highly seasonal and its success is dependent on the economic well-being of local and international tourists. Income from accommodation (excluding restaurant and bar sales and other income) stayed flat in 2018 at R24.96bn compared to R24.97bn in 2017. The number of available units in December 2018 decreased across all types of accommodation compared to 2017. The sector has the potential to be a major contributor to the economy and enterprise development, especially among women and youth.

    Kenya is a net importer of petroleum products and its petroleum sector is dominated by foreign-owned companies. The sector is characterised by a large number of players that import, export, distribute and transport petroleum products. The majority of market share is held by UK-owned and JSE-listed Vivo Energy, and Nairobi Stock Exchange-listed KenolKobil and Total Kenya. Foreign investors are developing the country’s oilfields for crude oil production and exports by 2021 pending their final investment decision.

    The metal packaging sector, which is valued at approximately R5.9bn per annum, accounts for 9.2% of the South African packaging market. Demand for packaging products was subdued in 2018 as a poor economy, joblessness and an increase in VAT, fuel, electricity and other prices put pressure on consumers’ disposable income. The metal packaging sector continues to have the highest recycling rate of all packaging, with almost 76% of all metal packaging in South Africa being recovered.

    Livestock farming is the largest agricultural sector and continues to suffer the consequences of reduced rainfall since 2014, ongoing drought and drought-induced losses, excessive temperatures which affect breeding, rising input costs, increasing crime, stock theft and predation, diseases, reduced consumer spending and limited access to land, water and resources. The sector continues to decline in terms of number of farmers and livestock. Despite all this however, gross animal product income for 2017/2018 of R142.97bn was 13.3% higher than the R126.16bn reported in 2016/2017, largely due to better prices received by farmers.

    South African horticulture plays an increasingly key role in the wider agricultural sector and is a particularly important category for the country’s agricultural exports. Horticulture’s contribution to the value of total agriculture has steadily increased over the past two decades and fresh fruit and vegetables accounted for 28.8% of annual gross value of agricultural production in the 2017/2018 season. The horticultural industry accounts for over one third of total employment in South African agriculture.
