ICT Sector Capital Expenditures, 2009 Intentions

  • ICT capital expenditures decreased by 3.7% in 2008, reaching estimated $11 billion, and are anticipated to grow by 1% in 2009. This would bring total capital expenditures by the Canadian ICT sector to $11.2 billion. Still, that is more than 11% lower than 2002's expenditure level. ICT capital expenditures intentions account for 4.7% of total Canadian investment intentions for 2009, but this share has been steadily declining since 2002 (when ICT’s capital expenditures accounted for 7.9% of total Canadian investments).
  • In 2009, capital expenditures intentions for the ICT services industries are valued at $9 billion, a 0.5% decrease from the previous year.
  • Investment by the ICT manufacturing industries are expected to increase in 2009 by 3% to $764 million. This is still nevertheless 18.1% lower than 2002 level of $933 million. However, since 2004 capital expenditures have been growing at a compound annual growth rate of 7%.
