This report focuses on the casting of finished or semi-finished products of iron or steel, viz. ferrous castings. During 2012, South
Africa’s 180 foundries produced 375,000 tonnes of castings. 338,000 tonnes of these were ferrous. Foundries contributed R9bn to the
South African gross domestic product (GDP) and employed 24,000 people in 2011. Since the publication of the previous sector
report in 2009 the number of ferrous foundries has decreased from 139 to 89, mainly due to rapidly increasing energy and labour
costs, lack of access to capital and a lack of skills development and training. During this time ferrous castings production decreased
from 425,908 tonnes.
