This IDC study outlines IDC Canada's forecast for the Canadian information, communications, and technology (ICT) market for the 2018–2022 forecast period. It updates our previous forecast published in Canadian ICT Forecast, 2017–2021 (IDC #CA41245017, July 2017).
"The Canadian ICT market grew 4.0% in 2017 — faster than expected — as it goes through a transition to the 3rd Platform. Canadian ICT spending surpassed C$105 billion last year. By 2022, the end of our current forecast period, ICT spending will reach almost C$117 billion. This will be dominated by 3rd Platform's pillar and innovation accelerator technologies, making the Canadian market look very different than it does today with vendors pursuing expanded market opportunity in adjacent segments," says Jason Bremner, research vice president, Industry and Business Solutions.
