Industry revenue of “manufacture of structural metal products“ in South Africa 2011-2023

Over the past years, housing and industrial construction and civil engineering activities have witnessed a decline in South Africa, due to cost overruns, a decline in government spending on infrastructural projects and a high unemployment rate. As a result, many related industries have witnessed only tepid growth, with one such being the structural metal products manufacturing industry, as a vast majority of structural metal products such as metal doors, shutters and window frames are used by the construction and engineering sector. Industry revenues are projected to only grow from 3.1 billion U.S. dollars in 2017 to 3.3 billion U.S. dollars by 2023. Moreover, South Africa’s overall steel consumption has also declined from 5 million tonnes in 2014 to 4.7 million tonnes in 2018.
