The infrastructure for social care accounts for 20.9 percent of the total, with health and education accounting for 4.6 and 7.2 percent, respectively. The public sector is forecast to invest R257 billion ($17.79 billion) on infrastructure in 2019/20, up 19% from the previous year. This is largely due to higher planned investment by state-owned enterprises, which are expected to restart or launch infrastructure projects that were previously postponed.

In the midst of fear of deteriorating economic circumstances, countries and businesses that are largely dependent on outsourcing are attempting to regulate imports of South Africa paints and coatings, so that they can use their own resources. South Africa's manufacturing sector, especially paint and coatings companies, is in a state of flux, with many of them shutting down or going out of business. The novel coronavirus pandemic has put a housing development program in South Africa in jeopardy. As a result, several paint and coatings firms who may have bid or intended to bid for a share of the project's supply contracts have had their hopes diminished. Hence this pandemic has declined the paints & coatings market in South Africa.
