    Kenya’s telecommunications sector grew relatively strongly in 2018, supported mainly by growth in the digital economy, mobile telephony, and internet penetration. Access to the internet is mostly obtained through mobile phones, which have become increasingly available and affordable, and data subscriptions stood at 46.8 million, out of which nearly half were on broadband. The Kenyan government identified the telecommunications industry as a key sector to aid rapid economic growth, and the sector is riding a wave of digital advancement that is expected to affect the telecommunications, digital services and cyber security markets in particular.

    June 2019 statistics indicate there are 6,808 veterinary and para-veterinary practitioners registered in South Africa, 17% more than there were in 2016. Tough economic conditions are expected to affect growth in the pet care industry. Some of the priorities for the sector include providing veterinary services to small farmers in rural areas, developing a national programme to prevent and control diseases, improving South Africa’s status as a leading country in veterinary research and diagnostics and improving accessibility, availability and affordability of veterinary services.

    The beverages industry plays a key role in the Angolan economy, contributing about 4% to GDP. Production meets about 90% of local demand of about 3 billion litres per year. With installed capacity at over 4.5 billion litres per annum, there is plenty of room for the sector to expand when economic conditions improve. Beer is the nation’s alcoholic beverage of choice and on average each Angolan consumes about 59 litres of it a year. The country also has a well-established wine drinking culture and is one of the largest markets on the continent for wine and spirits. However, given the high levels of poverty, branded products are regarded as a luxury purchase and there is a significant informal trade in liquor and non-alcoholic beverages.

    Bread is the second most important staple food in South Africa after maize meal. With the price of maize products decreasing following a good maize harvest, many people reverted to maize meal, resulting in bread consumption in South Africa declining slightly since May 2018. The manufacture of baked goods is a growing industry, and artisanal and in-store bakeries are on the increase. Higher-income consumers have variety and health requirements, while there are opportunities for emerging bakers to enter local informal markets.

    The manufacture of cleaning products, wax and polishes is a well-established industry in South Africa where several multinational companies and major home-grown players compete. The annual retail sales value of cleaning products is estimated to be around R20bn, with the largest segment being laundry care. Personal hygiene products and cleaning agents have traditionally been regarded as essential items, but economic pressures have altered consumer spending patterns and household cleaning products are no longer considered a necessity.

    In 2019, education and culture received the largest share of the budget, with a R262.4bn allocation. The country’s education system receives funding which is about 20% of the national budget and 6% of GDP, exceeding that of many sub-Saharan African countries - but they achieve far better educational outcomes than South Africa does. South Africa’s poorest learners depend on dysfunctional public schooling and achieve poor outcomes, and while enrolment at the secondary level has been expanding, completion rates are low. About 400,000 students who started grade one 12 years ago, did not reach grade 12 in 2018. In the higher education sector, universities can accommodate only 18% of South African matriculants and 47% will drop out.

    This report focuses on the manufacture of petroleum products from crude oil and natural gas and the wholesale and retail trade of these products. The liquid fuels sector is dominated by multinational petroleum companies that distribute products through partnerships with local companies. Mozambique is a net importer of petroleum products, and bitumen is the only product that is produced locally. The decision by Texas-based Anadarko to invest about US$25bn in the Rovuma liquefied natural gas (LNG) project, and other major projects in the Rovuma basin, will bring opportunities for local businesses and skills development.

    The revitalisation of South Africa’s maritime transport and marine manufacturing industries, which contribute around R56.5bn to the economy each year, continues to be driven by the government’s oceans economy programme, Operation Phakisa. In the boatbuilding sector, South Africa is the second largest producer of catamarans in the world, and local boat builders are well-regarded internationally.

    The strength of the automotive and independent power producer industries and strong energy security research and development activity continue to support growth in the battery manufacturing industry. There is significant opportunity for continued development on the back of increasing renewable generation and energy storage investment, partly to counter the increasing risk of an Eskom failure. In the past decade, the rechargeable lithium-ion battery market doubled on average every three years due to the increased usage of mobile phones, computer tablets and laptops.

    Challenging macro-economic conditions compounded by rising input costs, and growing concern about plastic products’ impact on the environment continue to have a significant effect on the performance of the local plastics and plastic products industry. Recent figures show the volume of plastic products manufactured increased by 3.3% between May 2018 and May 2019, while the sales value of these products rose by 5.3%. According to the industry association, 60,000 people are employed in the plastics and plastic products industry, while an estimated 1,800 companies operate as converters.

    South Africa’s footwear manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers are struggling in the face of tough economic conditions. South African Footwear and Leather Industry Association (Saflia) figures show that local market demand for footwear was 264 million pairs in 2018, with local production accounting for less than one-quarter of demand. While local production decreased by nearly 9 million pairs or 13.3% in 2018, imports grew by 3.3 million pairs, or 1.6%. This drop in production can, in part, be attributed to a protracted strike in the industry in the middle of 2018.

    The liquid fuels sector is dominated by private petroleum companies, as well as the state-owned Petroleum, Oil and Gas Corporation of South Africa (PetroSA). According to the South African Petroleum Industry Association (Sapia), the fuel sector contributes about 6% to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) while supplying some 18% of South Africa’s primary energy needs through annual sales of around 31 billion litres of liquid fuels. Investment in South Africa’s aging refineries is necessary to avoid widening the trade deficit for liquid fuels. With advanced technology available in South Africa, biofuels have the potential to contribute towards closing the trade deficit.

    The generator and transformer industry includes all technologies which generate and move electricity and the encompassing digital platforms which monitor and manage these increasingly complex power networks. The industry has since 2015 suffered the effects of an economy weakened by reduced investment and operational expenditure in the traditional power industry, which is represented by Eskom and municipalities, as well as in agriculture, construction, manufacturing and mining, and energy, that are all key industries which utilise industry products and services. However the industry has benefitted from rising government, corporate, industrial, agricultural and private investment in renewable energy installations.

    The agricultural sector contributed only 6.7% to Zambia’s gross domestic product (GDP) in 2017, but it is the most important to the country from a socio-economic point of view, employing almost 54% of the labour force in 2018. Zambia’s economy grew by an estimated 3.5% in 2018, but the economy is vulnerable to variations in the copper price, and to drought, and economic growth was mostly due to growth in the services and mining sectors that offset a contraction in the agricultural sector as a result of low rainfall.
