BMI View: Canada is an advanced and high-value IT market, both in terms of spending by households and ente rprises and the ecosystem of local vendors. This will make it a strong market for the adoption of the latest software and services solutions around cloud computing and the Internet of Things. The hardware outlook is , however , subdued due to PC saturation but it will continue to be lucrative with high device prices and growth potential in hybrid notebooks.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

  • Hardware Sales: CAD10.9bn in 2016, forecast to reach CAD11.8bn in 2020. A lucrative but low-growth hardware segment is envisaged, where replacement spending on premium PCs will be the largest share of sales.

  • Software Sales: CAD14.3bn in 2016, forecast to reach CAD17.0bn in 2020. Data analytics demand growth will be an area of outperformance, with upside potential in cybersecurity.

  • IT Services Sales: CAD40.7bn in 2016, forecast to reach CAD48.0bn in 2020. Cloud computing and Internet of Things adoption are positive trends that will help to offset saturation of the core market.
