The Manufacture of Metal Containers: This report focuses on the manufacture of all types of metal containers, a sector that is valued at an estimated R5.57bn per annum. Companies in the South African metal packaging industry supply cans, pails and drums in a variety of shapes and sizes to a variety of markets and end-users. As with most domestic manufacturing sectors, this industry has to compete with cheap Chinese imports of containers as well as the steel and aluminium required for manufacture.


Challenges and Opportunities : With the weak economy and a struggling local manufacturing industry, companies such as Rheem South Africa and multinational Greif are looking at the rest of the continent for growth opportunities. However, opportunities do exist locally. In September 2015 Nigerian aluminium beverage can maker GZ Industries and South Africa’s Golden Era Packaging entered into a R1bn joint venture to set up a 1.2 billion can a year manufacturing plant. The new company, Gayatri GZI Beverage Cans is expected to commence operations during 2016. Increasing overall demand in the beverage can sector has been accompanied by a growing demand for aluminium cans. In response, role players Nampak, aluminium producer, Hulamin and the two largest users of cans, South African Breweries (SAB) and Coca-Cola Southern Africa, have spent more than R1bn converting their production lines to aluminium.
