In 2018, technology companies’ Capex towards webscale networks touched $100 billion. Investment in webscale networks include hyperscale data centers and undersea cable systems that support network traffic from the tech companies’ online retail, video, and social media platforms, along with cloud services.

The increase in Capex during the last 12 months was primarily led by global technology companies such as Alibaba, Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Baidu, Facebook, Microsoft, and Tencent.

Total debt for the sector reached $446.1 billion in March 2019 or $186.1 billion less than cash & stocks. Some individual companies could face debt issues in an economic downturn due to regulatory pressure.
