The Steel and Engineering Industries Federation of Southern Africa (SEIFSA) is the undisputed voice of the metals and engineering sector in South Africa and the region. Its knowledge and understanding of the sector is unequalled.

Over the years, the Federation has seen the metals and engineering sector go through great times and – especially in recent years – challenging times. Not only has it kept pace with developments in the sector, but often it has  been a crucial – and sometimes indispensable – part of those developments and a reliable voice of the sector.

Our revered Economics and Commercial (EC) Division is a repository of much of the information on the sector’s economic performance over the years. For more than half a century, the EC Division has published the unique and indispensable SEIFSA Price and Index Pages (PIPS). Over the past two decades, the Division has also conducted traning for those keen to benefit from our training in Contract Price Adjustments (CPA).

To mark our 75th anniversary, this year we publish our biggest and most authoritative State of the Metals and Engineering Sector 2018 to 2019, which has much more information than any of its predecessors. Compiled by Dr Michael Ade and Ms Marique Kruger, this publication is brimming with invaluable information on the sector’s historical and expected future performance.

Those who closely monitor the fortunes of the broad metals and engineering sector and its sub-sectors in Southern Africa, and those with even a passing interest in it and its related sectors, will find this Report invaluable.
