Manufacture and Wholesale of Machinery for Mining, Quarrying and Construction


The volume of special purpose machinery produced increased by 5.5% between December 2017 and December 2018, while the sales value of these products at current prices rose by 8.2% over the same period. Seasonally adjusted sales value of special purpose machinery was R5.55bn in December 2018. Manufacturers and wholesalers of mining, quarrying and construction machinery are experiencing subdued demand for their products due to low levels of investment in the mining industry and limited activity in the construction sector.


Industry Developments


A number of initiatives aimed at boosting the sector include the launch of the Mining Equipment Manufacturers of South Africa, which aims to develop a world-class mining equipment manufacturing sector, as well as government’s announcement of a R400bn infrastructure fund and the new Mining Charter which has brought some policy certainty to the sector. However, a recent report said the competitiveness of South African manufacturers is being reduced by import competition, especially from China. Manufacturers blame this on a lack of protection in the capital equipment industry and the fact that state-owned companies and municipalities prefer imported equipment.
