Dating site market analysis
Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.
Today, 12% of 55- to 64-year-olds report ever using an online dating site or mobile dating app versus only 6% in 2013.
Digital technology and smartphones in particular have transformed many aspects of our society, including how people seek out and establish romantic relationships.
Few Americans had online dating experience when Pew Research Center first polled on the activity in 2005, but today 15% of U. adults report they have used online dating sites or mobile dating apps.
Disapproval has gotten especially rare among now spend more time on dating apps than they do on the sites themselves.
And by 2018, more than 80 percent of the population will own a smartphone up from 46 percent in 2012, according to IBISWorld.
That means making a dent as a new player will be harder than ever since many will have to build a database of users from scratch, says IBISWorld analyst Jeremy Edwards.
That is a substantial increase from the 43% of online daters who had actually progressed to the date stage when we first asked this question in 2005.
Even if you choose not to have your activity tracked by third parties for advertising services, you will still see non-personalized ads on our site.
This statistic gives information on the mobile dating market revenue in the United States from 2009 to 2011 with forecast until 2017.
One factor behind the substantial growth among younger adults is their use of mobile dating apps.
About one-in-five 18- to 24-year olds (22%) now report using mobile dating apps; in 2013, only 5% reported doing so.
