An Overview of the Creator Economy in Germany

Social media personalities’ content continues to captivate younger audiences in Germany.

While X (formerly Twitter) usage holds steady, ongoing controversies offer alternative platforms a chance at mainstream success with the attraction of celebrities and creators.

Social Media Germany Market Research: What Consumers Want and Why

  • Social Media Market Share Germany: 68% of Germans aged 16 to 34 who follow social media personalities spend more time watching content from them online than watching TV. This underpins social media platforms as a go-to media for many young consumers, with content creators receiving considerable attention and reach.
  • Germany Social Media Market Opportunities: 32% of German influencer followers aged 16 to 34 have paid a social media personality in the last three months, and another 3 in 10 would pay for exclusive content from their favourite creators. Community-based support drives quality content creation by rising creators, opening increased collaboration opportunities for brands.
  • Influencer Marketing in Germany – Challenges: Mintel’s Germany influencer market report shows that their perception is still marked by associations such as ‘superficial,’ ‘waste of time,’ and ‘fake’, which could deter particularly older German consumers from engaging with them. While younger generations have a more positive perception due to deeper experiences, negative associations remain a challenge. By addressing these concerns, influencer marketing in Germany can become more effective.

Germany Social Media Market Forecast

  • As people encounter a broader range of social media content creators in Germany, perceptions of them will gradually shift in a more positive direction. Increased creativity tools, monetisation options, and improved features for brand-personality alignment will contribute to this shift.
  • The development of AI Influencers offers brands safer and more controllable ways of collaborations, and young male social media users are most likely to be interested in social media innovations. However, virtual influencers will need to be more useful to compensate for their lack of relatability, and the value of relatable, authentic human creators for platforms or brands will not diminish despite these innovations.
