The global social media management market was valued at USD 23.50 billion in 2023. The market is projected to be worth USD 28.49 billion in 2024 and reach USD 134.07 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 21.4% during the forecast period (2024-2032). Social media management is collecting and analyzing target groups and developing marketing and influence strategies tailored to specific groups of people or target groups. Creating and distributing online social media content, monitoring online conversations with customers and followers, interacting with influencers, providing community service, and monitoring, measuring, and reporting social media performance and ROI are part of social media management.

Rising demand for work-from-home policies during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic is driving the growth of the global social media market, thereby increasing the demand for social media management solutions. Additionally, the growing demand for easily accessible short-form entertainment and media is impacting the growth of the market. However,  privacy and sharing challenges in social media management platforms are likely to impact the market. Further, integrating advanced tools, such as machine learning and data analysis, with social media management solution suites is expected to provide valuable opportunities for the expansion of the industry during the forecast period.

The pandemic positively impacted the growth of the social media management market as the use of social media increased drastically. According to the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, over 70% of Spanish adults claimed a rise in social media use during the first wave of the pandemic in 2020. In addition, around 87% of respondents claimed a rise in their social media use during the second wave in 2021. This rise in the use of social media was found across every country globally, which further positively influenced the market.

Social Media Management Market Trends

Growing Adoption of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality into Social Media to Boost Market Growth

Integrating Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) into social media platforms catalyzes a significant transformation within social media management. This innovation is sparking a surge in demand for comprehensive social media marketing solutions that can effectively harness the potential of AR and VR for enhanced user engagement and marketing. Social media networks leverage these technologies to create immersive content, from interactive filters and 3D ads to virtual showrooms and live VR events.

This trend drives the development of analytics tools that track AR and VR engagement metrics and content creation features tailored to these technologies. Additionally, social media managers seek platforms that integrate seamlessly with AR/VR capable networks, enabling them to manage campaigns across multiple platforms efficiently. As the adoption of such technologies continues to grow, marketers and businesses recognize the need for versatile social media marketing and management solutions that can adapt to this evolving landscape, ensuring they stay at the forefront of engaging their audiences and delivering memorable brand experiences.

Social Media Management Market Growth Factors

Integration of AI-driven chat-bots and Machine Learning Capabilities to Enhance the Initiatives toward Social Media Management Solutions

Artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven chatbots are becoming increasingly sophisticated, capable of understanding natural language and context and providing real-time responses. This enables businesses to offer immediate support and information to their social media followers, enhancing customer satisfaction and retention. Furthermore, Machine Learning (ML) algorithms analyze vast amounts of data to derive valuable insights about audience behaviour, content performance, and trends. This data-driven approach empowers businesses to fine-tune their social media strategies for maximum impact and return on investment. As AI and ML continue to evolve, their integration into social media management solutions redefines how brands interact with their audience and extract meaningful insights from the digital noise. For instance,

In April 2023, Sprout Social, a cloud-based social media management software provider, launched new ML and automation features with OpenAI’s GPT model. These enhancements expanded their ML capabilities and integrated Repustate acquisition, enabling organizations to work smarter and maximize their social media impact.


Growing Skepticism among Consumers Regarding Influencer Authenticity to Hamper Market Expansion

One of the primary reasons for the skepticism toward modern influencers is the lack of credibility. It profoundly impacts businesses and brands that rely on influencer marketing as a core component of their social media strategies. When end users perceive influencers as inauthentic or insincere, it damages their reputation and harms their associated brand. This makes it challenging for social media management tools to measure influencer campaigns' return on investment accurately.

Additionally, as regulatory bodies pay increasing attention to influencer marketing, social media marketing tools may need to evolve to ensure compliance with emerging guidelines and regulations to maintain consumer trust.
