This IDC study, based on IDC Canada's custom Communications Market Model, presents our updated five-year telecom services forecast as well as summary-segmented forecasts by customer segment, company size, industry sector, and region. It is an essential document for any player in the Canadian telecom services market.
IDC expects the Canadian telecom services market to generate revenue of C$45.5 billion (including wholesale) in 2015 and have only a 1.8 per cent CAGR over the next five years.
"CSPs must urgently make the transition to becoming the service providers of the future to face the twin challenges of market erosion by telecom and cable players in each other's core markets coupled with lower-than-expected growth and stalled penetration in wireless," says document coauthor Lawrence Surtees, vice president and principal analyst in the Communications Practice at IDC Canada Ltd. "New opportunities may be had in IT services and video markets, but disruptive technologies such as SIP trunks and global transformation of ICT platforms are spawning new competitors while changing the economics of service delivery."
