Canadian Wireless Services Forecast, 2018–2022: Wireless Wars 15 IDC Canada

Lawrence Surtees, Nikhil Anand

2018-08-08

Aug 2018

This IDC study updates IDC Canada's annual forecast of the Canadian wireless communication services market.

"The burgeoning popularity of wireless, coupled with a growing mobile workforce and increasing wireless substitution, strengthens the primacy of wireless as the preferred method of communications and the engine of telecom revenue growth in Canada," says Lawrence Surtees, study author and vice president of Communications Research at IDC Canada. "The advent and need for next-generation 5G wireless networks will further drive use of and spending on wireless data at the end of the current forecast period and beyond."

This IDC study is the fourth iteration of the Canadian business TV services forecast and updates Canadian Business TV Services Forecast, 2017-2021 (IDC #CA41921117, July 2017).

"This changing nature of video delivery technology means providers will be challenged in attempting to grow the business video market."

Canadian Telecom Services Forecast, 2018–2022: Telecom Inside Out IDC Canada

Lawrence Surtees, Nikhil Anand, Manish Nargas, Emily Taylor

May 2018

This IDC study presents IDC Canada's five-year forecasts for communications services spending by customer segment, company size, industry sector, and region for 2018–2022 based on the annual update of IDC Canada's custom Communications Market Model and replaces our previous comprehensive forecast document (see Lawrence Surtees, Nikhil Anand, and Manish Nargas, Canadian Telecom Services Forecast, 2017–2021: Telecom Inside Out, IDC Canada #CA41246217, May 2017).

Readers should note the adjustments made in this study and rely on this forecast for 2018 planning purposes. This study addresses the following questions:

How does current and projected spending on Canadian telecom services differ by:
- Market segment?
- Customer segment?
- Company size?
- Region?
- Industry vertical sector?

Which industry sectors, customer segments, company size, and regional segments of the Canadian communications services market are poised for growth, and which are the best opportunities for communication service providers (CSPs) over the new five-year forecast period?

CSPs continue to face twin challenges of market erosion by new and established entrants in their core markets, coupled with stalled penetration in wireless. The advent and adoption of lower-cost technological substitutes such as SIP trunks and new software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) data service along with increased wireless substitution will further exacerbate revenue erosion in traditional telecom market segments over the five-year forecast period.
