Canadian IT Forecast, 2018–2022: By Vertical Market

This IDC study outlines IDC Canada's market size and forecast for the Canadian information technology (IT) market by industry for the 2018–2022 forecast period. It updates our previous forecast published in Canadian IT Forecast, 2017–2021: By Vertical Market (IDC #CA41260917, May 2017). This document includes data on enterprise IT markets including hardware, software, and services — it does not encompass the connectivity market. "The Canadian ICT market is going through a transformation. By 2022, the Canadian technology market will have been reshaped by the cumulative impact of analytics, cloud computing, social networks, and emerging tools like artificial intelligence, virtual/augmented reality, robotics/drones, and quantum computing," says Nigel Wallis, vice president, Industry and IoT.
