The Canadian communications market, including traditional pay-TV, generated $38.5bn in service revenue in 2008. Forty-four percent of growth in 2008 stemmed from mobile voice.We expect the market to grow at a CAGR of 2.7% from year-end 2008 to year-end 2013, reaching $44bn in 2013. Accounting for a large part of the growth, mobile data revenue will climb from $2.1bn in 2008 to $4.9bn in 2013. IP networks will also support growth. IPTV will grow from $71m in 2008 to $610m in 2013; VoIP will grow from $910m in 2008 to more than $1.6bn in 2013; In 2013, fixed broadband will be a $7.1bn market, $1.5bn larger than in 2008. The decline of PSTN voice revenue will result from the substitution of voice platforms, both as fixed operators migrate customers to all-IP voice platforms and as consumers opt for mobile voice platforms, which will increasingly become all-IP.
