The South African Generator and Transformer Industry: Since 2015 the South African generator and transformer industry has suffered the effects of an economy weakened by reduced investment in energy and mining, declining manufacturing output and the impact of the drought on the agricultural sector. Above average winter temperatures and rising renewable energy production combined with Eskom’s stabilising of the grid, have resulted in an energy surplus that has negatively affected the growth of the generator industry. Growth in the transformer sector has also slowed because of reduced capital investment. Fraud and corruption remain prevalent and despite an increased focus on localisation, South Africa imported electrical transformers, static converters and inductors to the value of approximately R4.7bn in 2016.

Opportunities: Although markets slowed in 2017, prospects are considered positive on local and African growth in the traditional and renewable electricity sectors. Climate change and the green economy are expected to play vital roles in the adoption of diesel generators in Africa. The implementation of the Carbon Tax in 2018 will impact the generator market and stakeholders believe that manufacturers of reduced noise and emissions level generators are more likely to achieve end-user acceptance.

Report Coverage:
