It’s a new year, and new markets are coming up, as the tech sector takes its first steps into a new world.
The US market, for instance, has been slow to take off.
The tech sector is expected to grow by 2.8 per cent in 2019.
The UK’s market is also in its nascent stages.
The technology sector is projected to grow in the UK by 1.8 percentage points in 2019, while the consumer goods sector is forecast to grow 2.3 per cent.
In Canada, the tech industry has the largest share of the country’s workforce, with just under 4 per cent of the workforce in the sector.
However, the growth rate is expected for the tech-heavy sectors of the Canadian economy, with consumer products and construction accounting for the bulk of that.
While Canada has a lot of tech talent, it’s also one of the least-developed economies in the world, with an average GDP per capita of just $19,500.
