The Canadian telecom market generated $45.3bn in service revenue in 2011, an increase of 6.5% from 2010. While we expect to see relatively slow growth in 2012 of 3.9% reflecting the EIU prediction of a weakening currency, the strengthening Canadian dollar will lead to higher growth in the telecom market in USD in 2013, as we expect greater investment in telecom from business and government sectors moving forward, given the minimal investments these sectors have made in telecom over the recession period. We expect revenue to grow 5.1% in 2013, resulting in a 2012-2017 CAGR of 3.3%.
The most important area of growth over the forecast period will be mobile data. The 700MHz spectrum auction in early 2013 will spur investment in, and deployment of, LTE networks, which will fuel the already strong growth in mobile broadband and will help to make mobile data the most important source of service revenue by 2015, increasing at a 13.8% CAGR from 2012-2017 to reach $13.6bn in 2017.
