With the widespread adoption of smartphones and the increasing use of mobile internet, SMS advertising has become an effective and efficient way for businesses to reach their target audience. SMS messages are easily accessible and have a high open rate, making them an attractive option for advertisers.

Trends in the market:
One of the key trends in the SMS Advertising market in France is the increasing use of personalized and targeted messages. Advertisers are leveraging customer data and analytics to create customized SMS campaigns that resonate with individual recipients. This approach helps to improve engagement and conversion rates, as customers are more likely to respond to messages that are relevant to their interests and needs. Another trend in the market is the integration of SMS advertising with other marketing channels. Businesses are combining SMS campaigns with social media, email marketing, and other digital platforms to create a cohesive and integrated marketing strategy. This multi-channel approach allows advertisers to reach customers at different touchpoints and reinforce their brand message.

Advertisers need to consider these local special circumstances when planning their SMS advertising campaigns. For example, urban areas may have a higher concentration of smartphone users and tech-savvy consumers, while rural areas may have different communication preferences.

Data coverage:

The data encompasses B2B enterprises. Figures are based on SMS Advertising spending and exclude agency commissions, rebates, production costs, and taxes. The market covers the advertising budget used for creating and sending SMS advertisements.

Modeling approach:

Market sizes are determined through a bottom-up approach, building on specific predefined factors for each market. As a basis for evaluating markets, we use annual financial reports of the market-leading companies and industry associations, third-party studies and reports, survey results from our primary research (e.g., the Statista Consumer Insights), as well as performance factors (e.g., user penetration, usage). In addition, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific associations, such as GDP, number of internet users, and internet coverage. This data helps us estimate the market size for each country individually.


In our forecasts, we apply diverse forecasting techniques. The selection of forecasting techniques is based on the behavior of the relevant market. For example, the S-curve function is well suited to forecast digital products due to the non-linear growth of technology adoption, whereas exponential trend smoothing (ETS) is more suited for projecting steady growth in traditional advertising markets. The main drivers are GDP per capita, consumer spending per capita, and internet coverage.

Additional notes:

The data is modeled using current exchange rates. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war are considered at a country-specific level. The market is updated twice a year. In some cases, the data is updated on an ad hoc basis (e.g., when new, relevant data has been released or significant changes within the market have an impact on the projected development). Data from Consumer Insightsis reweighted for representativeness.
