DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "South African Cement: Need For Better Co-Ordination 2017 - 2020" report to their offering.
This report highlights recent and forecasted trends in the South African cement industry.
Despite the cyclical nature and the recent decline in the South African construction sector, some cement companies have defied these odds to achieve higher sales in an environment where earnings have, in some instances, fallen by 55%.
Meanwhile, African growth in the sector is achieving significantly higher levels of volume on the back of newly commissioned plants and increased development in, among other, Rwanda, Botswana and Zimbabwe. This is providing local companies with opportunities to expand their market capitalisations in Africa.
It undertakes an analysis of industry statistics, participants and JSE-listed Construction & Materials companies and Indices to provide greater insight into the dynamics of this market.
Statistics assessed include Order books, profit margins, cyclical nature of the market and the lack of a significant economic recovery in South Africa. The report concludes how these variables will affect local companies, particularly as African economic growth has turned local companies' attention to more lucrative markets.
In addition, cement companies have been affected by labour unrest in the market in general and, more specifically, at their clients' businesses, which resulted in substantial delays at some of the country's major construction projects.
The past few years have highlighted the need for better coordination and monitoring within the cement industry. Will the South African Government roll-out its National Infrastructure Plan improve financial conditions for these companies?
