Abstract

Synopsis

This report provides detailed market analysis, information and insights into the South African construction market, including:

  • The South African construction market's growth prospects by sector, project type and type of construction activity
  • Analysis of equipment, material and service costs across each project type within South Africa
  • Critical insight into the impact of industry trends and issues and the risks and opportunities they present to participants in the South African construction market
  • Assessment of the competitive forces facing the construction industry in South Africa and profiles of the leading players
  • Data highlights of the largest construction projects in South Africa

Summary

The South African construction industry recorded a CAGR of 13.72% during the review period. The construction industry output slowed following the 2010 FIFA World Cup, but has started to recover. Under the National Infrastructure Plan (NIP) that was adopted in 2012, the government will invest ZAR827 billion (US$100.8 billion) in infrastructure development over the forecast period. The country faces a substantial housing deficit and will need government support to develop public housing and drive the residential construction market. The industrial sector, which had benefitted from low wages, now faces labor unrest and will have to focus on increasing productivity to remain competitive. While the large number of projects announced provides hope for the construction industry, corruption, mismanagement and price fixing threaten to undermine the proper implementation of these developments. Timetric expects the South African construction industry to record a CAGR of 10.87% over the forecast period.
