A comprehensive overview of the current economic environment in South Africa. Learn potential scenarios to watch coming into 2020, key trends impacting the region, and industry impacts of these trends.

Overview, Table of Contents & Sample Pages below


The economy will grow below 1.0% for a third consecutive year, weighed down by persistent structural challenges, cooling export demand, fragile public finances, and weak domestic confidence. Yet the lackluster outlook masks varying performance across different consumer segments, industry verticals, and public sector customers, with resilient pockets of demand still offering MNCs scope to increase sales. As companies double down on these priority customers, competition for market share is likely to intensify, pressuring executives to refine their South Africa strategies by deepening customers insights, while focusing on developing and marketing the value-added aspects of their products and services.
