Analyst Opinion

The Influencer Advertising market is experiencing significant growth and development Worldwide.

Customer preferences:
Influencer advertising has become increasingly popular among consumers due to its authenticity and relatability. Customers are more likely to trust and engage with influencers who they perceive as genuine and knowledgeable in a specific niche. As a result, brands are leveraging the power of influencers to promote their products or services and reach a wider audience. Additionally, customers are also seeking personalized experiences and recommendations, which influencers are able to provide through their content.

Trends in the market:
One of the key trends in the Influencer Advertising market is the rise of micro-influencers. These are individuals with a smaller following but a highly engaged audience. Brands are recognizing the value of micro-influencers as they often have a more targeted and niche audience, resulting in higher conversion rates. This trend is particularly evident in countries like the United States and United Kingdom, where micro-influencers are gaining popularity among brands across various industries. Another trend in the market is the increasing use of video content by influencers. Platforms like YouTube and TikTok have provided influencers with a powerful medium to engage with their audience through video content. This trend is driven by the growing popularity of video consumption among consumers, especially among younger demographics. Brands are capitalizing on this trend by collaborating with influencers to create engaging and entertaining video content that resonates with their target audience.

Local special circumstances:
In countries like India and China, the Influencer Advertising market is experiencing rapid growth due to the large population and increasing internet penetration. These countries have a thriving social media landscape, with platforms like Instagram and WeChat being widely used by consumers. Influencers in these countries have a massive reach and are able to connect with a diverse audience. Furthermore, the rise of local influencers who cater to specific cultural and regional preferences has contributed to the growth of the market in these countries.

Underlying macroeconomic factors:
The growth of the Influencer Advertising market is also influenced by macroeconomic factors such as increasing disposable income and changing consumer behavior. As economies grow and individuals have more disposable income, they are more likely to spend on products or services recommended by influencers. Additionally, the shift towards online shopping and e-commerce has created opportunities for influencer marketing, as consumers are looking for trusted recommendations and reviews before making a purchase. In conclusion, the Influencer Advertising market is witnessing significant growth and development Worldwide. Customer preferences for authenticity and personalized experiences, along with trends such as the rise of micro-influencers and video content, are driving the market forward. Local special circumstances in countries like India and China, as well as underlying macroeconomic factors like increasing disposable income, are also contributing to the growth of the market. As the market continues to evolve, brands and influencers will need to adapt to changing consumer preferences and leverage new platforms and technologies to stay relevant and impactful.


Data coverage:

Data encompasses enterprises (B2B). Figures are based on influencer advertising spending and exclude agency commissions, rebates, production costs, and taxes. The market covers advertising fees paid directly to influencers to post sponsored content.

Modeling approach:

Market size is determined by a combined top-down and bottom-up approach. We use market data from independent databases, influencer marketing platforms, and third-party reports to analyze and estimate global influencer advertising spending. We start by researching on the average cost per content post on each social media platform, the number of influencers available on advertising platforms (breakdown by tier: nano, micro, macro, and mega), and the average number of posts per year. Then we estimate the market size for each country individually. We use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific industry associations, such as GDP, social media users, and digital consumer spending. Lastly, we benchmark key countries or regions (global, United States, China, etc.) with external sources.


We use a variety of forecasting techniques, depending on the behavior of the market. For instance, 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.

Additional notes:

Data is modeled using current exchange rates. The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war are considered at a country-specific level. The market is updated twice per year in case market dynamics change.
