Infrastructure Insight: South Africa
The report provides a detailed look into the infrastructure sector in South Africa, including analysis of the state of the current infrastructure, the regulatory and financing landscapes, and the major projects in the construction pipeline.
The report covers all key infrastructure sectors: roads, railways, electricity and power, water and sewerage, communication, and airports and ports.
Infrastructure expenditure in South Africa is forecast to increase over the 2016–2020 period.
According to Timetric’s Infrastructure Intelligence Center (IIC), the infrastructure construction market’s value rose from ZAR152.5 billion (US$11.1 billion) in 2010 to ZAR222.3 billion (US$16.1 billion) in 2015, and is projected to reach ZAR335.3 billion (US$24.3 billion) by 2020 in nominal value terms.
This is based on the assumption that a number of major infrastructure projects will proceed as planned, including the 5,000MW Upington Solar Power Park project, the Gautrain Commuter Expansion, the Gauteng Freeway Improvement: Phase II Bulk Distribution System, the Port of Ngqura Manganese Export Terminal Expansion and the Johannesburg–Durban High-Speed Rail Link.
