Canadian ICT 2011 - 2015 Forecast Summary

This IDC study outlines our forecast for the Canadian information, communications, and technology markets for the five-year period from 2011 to 2015. It provides an update to Canadian ICT 2010–2014 Forecast Summary (IDC #CA3ES10, May 2010), and it provides information on the trends and direction of all three major IT markets (hardware, software, and services) as well as the top-line communications market over our five-year 2011–2015 forecast period. Five years of historical data are also included for your reference. It is the single most comprehensive forecast study on the Canadian ICT market produced by IDC Canada.

2010 was a rebound year for both the economy and the ICT industry, with growth in most markets well in excess of the long-term trend. With the catch-up year behind us, IDC expects that 2011 will see ICT spending growth below GDP, followed by spending growth slightly higher than GDP in subsequent years, barring further unforeseen major catastrophes.

"In 2011, we will experience a mild backlash from last year's recovery," says Chris Sullivan, vice president of Finance and Operations at IDC Canada. "Spending growth in both IT and telecom will slow down now that buyers have gone ahead with purchases postponed from 2009. With new equipment, software, and projects under way, we won't return to our long-term trend until 2012."
