The South African mining explosives market for coal, iron ore, PGMs, and gold was worth $530.7 million in 2015 and its growth will be limited (CAGR of 1.2%) over the next five years. This is due to the global oversupply of metals and minerals and low commodity prices that are hindering the growth of explosives in the local mining sector. Mining of major commodities is expected to gradually regain momentum, as global demand and prices slowly recover, although this falls outside the current forecast period. Worth $223.8 million in 2015, the bulk emulsion explosives segment is expected to reach $238.6 million by 2020 at a CAGR of 1.3%. In comparison, the packaged explosives segment is expected to grow from $149.3 million in 2015 to $158.2 million by 2020 at a CAGR of 1.2%, while initiating systems will expand from $157.5 million in 2015 to $167.6 million by 2020 at a CAGR of 1.2%. The South African mining explosives market is a very competitive and price-sensitive market. Weak global demand for commodities, combined with low commodity prices, has forced mining companies to take a closer look at reducing variable costs to ensure the viability of mining operations. The top three market participants (AEL Mining Services, BME South Africa, and Sasol Explosives) had a combined revenue market share of over 82.0% in 2015. Major contract gains or losses periodically shift the market shares between the top three competitors, but ultimately these competitors dominate the market. With slow, stagnant growth in mining production and in both green and brownfield projects, competitor growth is dependent on the status of these contracts.
