Report Coverage

This report focuses on the Manufacture and Wholesale of Machinery for Mining, Quarrying and Construction in South Africa. It includes information on the state and size of the industry, key trends, technology and innovation and the performance, developments and corporate actions of notable players. There are profiles of 43 companies including the major players such as Barloworld, Bell Equipment and Master Drilling, local operations of international groups such as Thyssenkrupp, wholesalers such as Komatsu and equipment importer and seller Invicta.

Introduction

• Manufacturers and wholesalers of mining, quarrying and construction machinery increased sales and exports on the back of the commodities boom, which offset subdued demand from the construction industry.
• Ongoing challenges include limited construction activity, poor economic growth, high input costs, power cuts and the declining competitiveness of South African manufacturers.
• A major local company indicated it will increasingly move some manufacturing offshore to be less exposed to local risks.
• Imports of primary inputs and finished machinery and parts pose a threat to the industry.
• Companies with operations in Russia felt the effect of sanctions and cancelled orders, and suspended some operations.
• There is significant innovation including the use of telematics and autonomous and remote-controlled machinery.

Strengths

• Large, well-established consumer markets.
• Manufacturers invest in R&D and innovation.
• Manufactures high-quality products.
• The provision of good after-sales support.
• Well-established companies with a large manufacturing capacity.
• Well-located to supply machinery into southern Africa.

Weaknesses

• Low manufacturing competitiveness relative to key exporting nations like China.
• Severe skills shortages of artisans, technicians, engineers and project managers.

Opportunities

• Export growth due to the African Continental Free Trade Area agreement.
• Long-term demand from other African countries as a consequence of development and infrastructure investment.
• Mining industry growth due to the clean energy transition.
• Planned government spending on infrastructure.

Threats

• For local manufacturers, competition from numerous importers and distributors of international brands.
• Inconsistent supply of electricity.
• Increasing costs of steel, electricity, water, labour and logistics in particular, pose a threat to the industry’s profitability and sustainability.
• Poor economic growth affects demand for machinery.
• Subdued demand from the construction industry.
• Supply chain disruptions due to the impact of COVID-19.

Outlook

• Demand for metals and minerals needed for clean energy is expected to increase, requiring more mining equipment.
• Capital expenditure of the 20 largest mining companies is forecast to rise sharply in 2022 to the highest level since 2014.
• Order books of major players are strong.
• Urbanisation and the need to upgrade infrastructure in several countries present an opportunity to construction machinery suppliers.

Introduction

The latest available data from the Construction and Mining Equipment Suppliers’ Association (Conmesa) shows that a total of 5,614 new units of mining and construction equipment were sold during 2017, while South Africa exported mining, quarrying and construction machinery worth US$850.6m in the same year, according to the International Trade Centre’s (ITC) Trade Map. Currently 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.

Strengths

• Companies invest in R&D and innovation.
• Manufactures high-quality products.
• Supplies equipment used by different economic sectors.
• The provision of thorough after-sales service.

Weaknesses

• Severe skills shortages of artisans, technicians, engineers and project managers.

Opportunities

• Establishment of the Mandela Mining Precinct.
• Exports into the rest of Africa.
• Planned spending by government on infrastructure.

Threats

• For local manufacturers, competition from numerous importers and distributors of international brands.
• Rising input costs.
• Subdued demand from the mining and construction sectors.
• Weak economy.

Outlook

Manufacturers and wholesalers of mining, quarrying and construction machinery expect markets to remain flat for most of 2019. Construction and Mining Equipment Suppliers’ Association chairman Lawrence Peters expects that the impact of an upturn after the elections will only be experienced towards the end of 2019, due to long planning and tendering processes. Barloworld is hopeful that government's infrastructure fund will stimulate demand for construction equipment, and that rising commodity prices and more positive sentiment around the Mining Charter would lead to investment in new mining projects.
