What’s Hot in the Metaverse For Consumers

Consumers engaging with metaverse-style virtual environments are interested in a number of industries and activities. Topping the list of interests is music, according to a new study by Reach 3 Insights.

The findings explain some of the live events and tie-ins that brands are launching in the metaverse on platforms like Decentraland and Roblox.

For marketers still in the wait-and-see or planning phases of their metaverse debut, this might help focus the effort based on where the interest is. Earlier this year, a MarTech survey found that over half of marketers are planning a metaverse activation either in the upcoming year (26%) or in the next five years (25%).

Hot metaverse topics. Consumers were asked what topics they would be interested in related to virtual experiences or products. Here are the top 7 topics in descending order:

  • Music, 68%
  • Travel/ tourism, 58%
  • Shopping/virtual stores, 53%
  • Live events, 53%
  • Gaming, 52%
  • Training/learning, 52%
  • Social/virtual get-togethers, 51%

The high interest in music explains why iHeartMedia recently launched a hub in the popular 3D game Fortnite. And the interest in gaming shows some crossover appeal with game audiences who are early adopters of metaverse experiences.
