To recap. We have seen which are the most used dating sites in the world. But how many users and revenue are there in the dating market?
If we look at the number of users for sure we can say how the market is growing very fast. In 2015 there were 185 million users registered in dating platforms worldwide and in 2020 they became 270 million. The growth has been constant: +15 or + 20 million per year. And it is likely to exceed 300 million in 2022.
But if we have seen how users are growing, how much is the dating market worth in dollars? According to Blackstone’s estimates, the dating app market is growing steadily. The revenue generated in 2020 was $3.08 billion. Up by almost double the 2015 figure. In fact, in 2015, the revenue generated by dating apps was about half that: $1.69 billion.
Users and turnover continue to grow. It will be interesting to see how this sector develops over the next few years.
