1. Influencer Demographics


YouTube in Vietnam has an almost equal distribution of male and female audiences, with only a 2.15% difference. Among them, Gen Zers (aged <19-25 years) use the platform most, making up 52.95% of the user base, followed by the Millennials (aged 26-32 years). According to affable.ai’s analysis, only 10.68% of the audience aged 33-39 years use YouTube, the lowest of all APAC nations, implying that the platform is used primarily by younger generations. 

2. Number of Influencers by Follower Count


Vietnam boasts a high number of micro (10k-50k followers) and nano-influencers (5k-10k followers), counting up to 9580 and 5439, respectively. In 2022, there were 2300 macro-influencers (100k-250k followers) on YouTube. The low count implies that although macro creators create viral content, they are less preferred than micro-influencers. There are a significant number of mid-tier influencers (50k -100k followers) on the platform, which are excellent for driving awareness and creating engagement. 

3. Influencer Engagement Rates


Taking average views as a primary metric for engagement for YouTube, mega influencers win the most engagement on the platform, clocking average views of 978946.46%. The percentage decreases further as we move down the follower count. The nano influencers generate the lowest average views on the platform. Seeing the number of nano and micro-influencers on the platform, it is evident that brands use macro and mega-influencers to generate awareness and go for smaller creators to win audience engagement. 

4. Influencer Posts: 2021 Vs. 2022


In 2022, Vietnamese influencers published more than 2.50 million posts, an increase from the 2.29 million posts published in 2021. The data shows that brands and audiences in Vietnam are consuming YouTube Shorts and long-form content for entertainment.
