Influencer Marketing Germany: Current Market Landscape

Due to the cost-of-living crisis consumers’ budgets are still strained, causing brands to scale back their spending on ads, and consumers to spend more cautiously. Nevertheless, influencers in Germany can be used as a valuable source for reassurance and advice, resonating with consumers’ prioritisation of value purchases.

Moreover, as mid-aged users increase their presence on social media platforms, e.g. for entertainment or content creation, influencer marketing in Germany will become increasingly applicable beyond a younger target group.

Germany Influencer Marketing: What Consumers Want and Why

  • Consumer Behaviour towards Influencer Marketing in Germany: With 93% of 16 to 24-year-old social media users following and viewing content from influencers, they are the main target group of influencer marketing in Germany. Young men especially look up to them, underpinning their role model function. This creates opportunities for brands to appeal to this target group through closer collaborations with influencers.
  • Influencers in Germany: 56% of 16 to 34-year-olds trust that the influencers they follow actually like the products they advertise. Simultaneously however, 48% think that influencers tend to say what their followers want to hear. This calls for more authenticity in Germany influencer marketing to build up a solid level of trust. Mintel’s experts will be able to give you actionable insights to increase consumers’ trust.
