Dating Services in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Dating Services in Canada

The Dating Services industry in Canada has exhibited strong growth over the five years to 2019 as a growing number of Canadians use the internet to seek love. The proliferation of broadband internet connections and greater cultural legitimacy surrounding online dating have helped the industry outpace the overall economy and capture a rising share of the consumer dollar. Consumer demand for online dating and matchmaking services has been growing due to fading social stigmas associated with online dating and busy work schedules that limit alternative ways of meeting potential partners. The industry will likely continue to benefit from rising demand. However, revenue growth is expected to decelerate over the five years to 2024.

This industry helps clients pursue romantic relationships, usually via mobile telephones, the internet and magazines and newspapers. Industry operators also organize events, such as speed dating. This industry does not include social networking websites.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
