DUBLIN – (BUSINESS WIRE) – The report “The Construction Industry in South Africa 2020” has been added ResearchAndMarkets.com Offer.

This report focuses on the construction industry in South Africa and provides comprehensive information on the state and size of the sector, developments, corporate actions and influencing factors.

The construction industry in South Africa:

The South African construction sector is a driver of socio-economic development and an important employment multiplier. Despite its strategic importance, declining infrastructure spending and mothballed public sector projects have impacted the sector.

The added value of the construction sector amounted to around 4% of GDP in 2019 and employed well over 1.3 million people.

Industry performance:

The ailing construction industry had a turbulent decade and was in distress before the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis. The performance was exacerbated by a decline in government and private investment

Some local construction companies have diversified into other sectors while others have ceased or sold their local construction business to focus on other markets. Construction companies in the rescue service include Basil Read, Esor Construction, and Group Five.


The construction industry was not classified as an essential service prior to the lockdown on March 27, 2020. With the exception of the health sector works and urgent repairs and maintenance, work on the construction sites has ceased and projects have slowly resumed with the gradual reopening of the economy.

The impact of the pandemic on large construction companies has been mixed with many operating in other countries. In view of the effects of the lockdown on the economy, analysts assume that the demand for general building technology will remain severely restricted in the short term and possibly in the medium term.

There are profiles of 58 companies that include major JSE-listed companies such as Murray & Roberts, Wilson Bayly Holmes-Ovcon, and Raubex. Other high profile companies include Concor, formerly Murray & Roberts Construction, owned by a consortium led by the Southern Palace Group, Calgro M3, which operates in the affordable housing and memorial park markets, and Isowall, the largest manufacturer of structural insulated panels in South Africa .
