The Manufacture of Explosives and Pyrotechnics: This report focuses on the explosive and pyrotechnic manufacturing sector in South Africa, which has an estimated value of R5bn. Environmental and safety concerns as well as technological advancements are key drivers of innovation in this fiercely competitive industry.


A Challenging Market: Industrial action in the mining industry has had a negative impact on the explosives sector. During 2014 for example, market leader African Explosives Ltd (AEL) Mining Services reported that its explosives manufacturing business lost R170m as a result of strikes in that sector, with volumes of explosives and initiating systems sold to mining companies decreasing by 4% and 19% respectively. Another large consumer of explosives is the construction sector, also under pressure due to muted economic growth and the slow roll-out of government’s infrastructure plan, originally valued at R4-trillion over 15 years.


Looking at New Markets: In response to local market conditions companies have turned their attention to the mining and construction sectors in sub-Saharan Africa. Even though the International Monetary Fund’s Regional Economic Outlook downwardly revised its 2016 forecast for the region to 4.25%, growth in this region is still stronger than that in many other regions, and certainly that of South Africa where growth of 1.3% is forecast for 2016. A shift in company focus is also apparent, with the AECI group diversifying into higher-margin products such as water treatment chemicals and Omnia focusing more on its agricultural and chemical manufacturing divisions.



Report Coverage:
