BMI View:
The maturity of the Canadian IT market prohibits the high growth rates observed in emerging markets during the period of rapid 'catch-up' growth, but it nonetheless remains a highly lucrative market for vendors in per capita spending terms. Despite the fact that PC hardware prices have declined, Canada will continue to be one of the most lucrative markets globally in terms of spending per capita, with consumers exhibiting a strong preference for premium hardware. There are also areas of enterprise spending outperformance, including enterprise adoption of cloud computing, real-time software and services and big data analytics. We expect Canada's IT market to record growth of 3.6% in 2015, and forecast a CAGR of 3.9% 2015-2019.


Headline Expenditure Projections
- Computer hardware sales: CAD19.1bn in 2014 to CAD19.3bn in 2015, an increase of 1.0%. Growth expected to decelerate from 2015 as a more subdued tablet market is only partially offset by growth in the notebook category.
- Software sales: CAD12.1bn in 2014 to CAD12.7bn in 2015, an increase of 4.6%. There is enterprise software growth potential among small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), as well as for advanced deployments in the large enterprise market.
- IT Services sales: CAD23.3bn in 2014 to CAD24.5bn in 2015, an increase of 5.3%. We expect cloud computing and big data deployments will drive IT services outperformance in 2015 and over the medium term.
