Manufacture of General Purpose Machinery


Sales of general purpose machinery were worth some R36.2bn in 2016 up from R34.1bn in 2015 and according to the Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Services Sector Education and Training Authority (merSETA), employment in the metals chamber stands at 298,000. General purpose machinery is typically defined as machinery that is used in a wide variety of industries, as opposed to machinery put to a specialised use in a single sector, such as agricultural equipment. There are 13 major product categories within the sector and there are a handful of major manufacturers or distributors active in each category with some 70 large or medium-sized businesses active in the sector as a whole.


A Sector Under Pressure


Despite annual sales increases, the volume production of general purpose machinery has been declining for some years and the industry is experiencing subdued demand and increasing competition from imports. According to the South African Manufacturing Circle, the poor performance of the segment is at least partly a function of the fragile state of the manufacturing sector as a whole. Many other sub-industries of manufacturing are key consumers of general purpose machinery and drive demand. Therefore, poor performance of overall manufacturing is particularly negative for machinery producers as they suffer doubly, first from generally depressed economic conditions and demand, and secondly from reduced orders from other manufacturers.
