The Manufacture and Wholesale of Basic Iron and Steel


The largest steel end user industries in South Africa are the building and construction and manufacturing sectors. Of concern to the four primary steel producers, ArcelorMittal South Africa (AMSA), Cape Gate, Columbus Stainless and Scaw Metals is the low growth rate currently being experienced in these important steel-consuming sectors. Although production capacity increased in 2017, by 3.3% for steel and 6% for iron, local apparent steel consumption dropped from 5.4Mt in 2013 to 4.8Mt in 2017. According to the Southern African Stainless Steel Development Association (SASSDA), local stainless steel consumption decreased by 5.6% in 2017.


Challenging Conditions


Factors that continue to have a significant impact on the performance of local manufacturers and wholesalers of basic iron and steel include the global oversupply of steel as well as high production costs due to inefficiencies and the country’s ageing plants caused in part by a lack of investment. The increases in electricity and gas prices, high rail and port charges and the fact that adequate amounts of affordable scrap metal are not available all contribute to the difficult conditions.
