Key Highlights

The utilities industry consists of the electricity, gas and water markets.

The South African utilities industry had total revenues of $13.8bn in 2016, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.7% between 2012 and 2016.

The electricity segment was the industry's most lucrative in 2016, with total revenues of $11.1bn, equivalent to 80.6% of the industry's overall value.

South African utilities companies are also lacking investment and suffer from poor efficiency. ‘Load shedding’, the practice of rolling blackouts, have been in place since November 2015 as the nation’s public electricity board, Eskom, is unable to meet demand. Eskom in June 2017 announced that there would be no more load shedding and any further outages would be due to maintenance.
