This report attempts to provide an overview of South Africa's industrial landscape during the 1990s, with specific emphasis on growth and sectoral shares in exports at a detailed 46-sector level. If one of the objective of the policies adopted during the middle of the 1990s was to bring about a shift in resources towards more tradable goods producing industries, then it is important to examine the trade performance of South Africa's industries in both the first and second halves of the 1990s.
