Although the South African biofuels markets are currently only theoretical, they offer several promising opportunities due to the government’s commitment to establishing the industry. However, delays in government decisions have dampened investments and will continue to hamper growth in the short term.

New analysis from growth consulting company Frost & Sullivan (chemicals.frost.com) South African Biofuels Markets, finds that the market could earn revenues of $872.0 million in 2010 and as much as $1,039.0 million in 2013.

"The market for biofuels production in South Africa offers real potential, as South Africa has much to gain from decreased dependence on imported fossil fuel products," comments Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Cornelis van der Waal. "Biofuels utilisation will also form the cornerstone of the government’s strategy to reduce greenhouse gasses under its Kyoto commitments."

Biofuels can also play an important role in stimulating economic activity in agricultural communities and boosting employment. As South Africa is a net importer of petroleum products, any additional local production should be encouraged. There will be significant opportunities for new and established companies to get involved in the lucrative petroleum sector that is currently dominated by a small number of large competitors.

However, the manufacture of biofuels requires feedstock and these could potentially conflict with food production. It is, therefore, of the highest importance that a cohesive strategy is developed at a central level with contributions from all stakeholders.

"Current agricultural activities in South Africa are mostly geared to meet local requirements and any additional demand for the same products will increase prices and reduce availability," says van der Waal. "While there is a delay in the development of the national strategy for biofuels, the planning and investment from the private sector has come to a halt. As long as there is no further clarity on the opportunities, it can be expected that very few new companies would be willing to invest in this industry."

Market participants need to carefully plan their area of involvement in the biofuels industry. There are various opportunities in the agricultural and production industries, but competition could become fierce, especially if government subsidies are favourable.
