Fast Market Research recommends "Canada Information Technology Report Q3 2014" from Business Monitor International, now available

[USPRwire, Tue Jul 29 2014] The maturity of the Canadian IT market means that growth rates will significantly underperform emerging markets, but in terms of spending per capita Canada will continue to be one of the most lucrative markets globally. We expect Canada's IT market to record growth of 3.2% in 2014, and forecast a CAGR of 4.1% 2014-2018. Premium consumer hardware will remain a growth area, but over the medium term the areas we identify for outperformance include enterprise adoption of cloud computing, real-time software and services and big data analytics. There is however downside to this outlook, with confidence in cloud - based solutions undermined by revelations surrounding NSA activities.

Headline Expenditure Projections

* Computer hardware sales: CAD16.8bn in 2013 to CAD17.2bn in 2014, an increase of 2.5%. As the tablet market approaches saturation we expect growth to slow from 2014, but growing demand for hybrid notebooks could compensate.
* Software sales: CAD10.8bn in 2013 to CAD11.2bn in 2014, an increase of 3.7%. There is enterprise software growth potential among SMEs, as well as for advanced deployments for large enterprises.
* IT Services sales: CAD21.2bn in 2013 to CAD22.0bn in 2014, an increase of 3.6%. Emerging technologies such as real time enterprise services and data analytics are growing segment of the market, while cloud computing adoption is widening.
