January 15, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 15, 2019--The “Wholesale of Other Machinery in South Africa 2018” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The Wholesale of Other Machinery focuses on the wholesale of capital equipment and other machinery in South Africa.

The key wholesale markets which are examined include mining and construction machinery, agricultural machinery, fire extinguishers, generators and transformers, and pumps and valves. The report describes current conditions in the local sector and factors influencing the success of the industry.

The report profiles 163 companies including key players Bell Equipment, Barloworld, and ELB. It includes comprehensive reports on these and companies such as Master Drilling, which announced the acquisition of Atlantis Group and recently unveiled its new blast-free mobile tunnel borer.

The metals and machinery sector employs around 295,000 people and has turnover of over R70bn across relevant machinery sub-sectors while total wholesale trade in machinery, equipment and supplies totalled R297.7bn in 2016. There are just under 5,000 formal enterprises active in the manufacture and distribution of capital machinery and other machinery.

Machinery suppliers face challenges related to South Africa’s poor economy and the country’s declining competitiveness relative to major machinery exporting nations such as China. The Steel and Engineering Industries Federation of Southern Africa said the machinery sector faces worrying levels of competitive imports combined with slow economic growth and declining global competitiveness.

After-market maintenance and servicing of machinery represents a stable source of business regardless of annual sales, and many companies rely on their value-added services to increase revenue in a difficult business environment.
