Brazil's digital landscape is booming, with internet penetration reaching an impressive 92.1% in 2023. This translates to nearly 188.2 million Brazilians now connected to the web, a significant increase of 6.1 million users compared to the previous year.

Mobile remains king, with a staggering 96.9% of the population boasting a cellular mobile connection. However, there's a slight dip compared to 2023, suggesting a potential consolidation in the market.

Social media continues to captivate Brazilians, with 144 million active users on various platforms. This translates to two-thirds of the population engaging with social media, highlighting its importance for communication and content consumption.

Here are some interesting insights from the data:

  • Mobile dominates internet access: A whopping 130.9% of internet users access the web via mobile phones, indicating a strong preference for on-the-go connectivity.
  • Brazilians spend a significant amount of time online: The average daily internet usage clocks in at an impressive 9 hours and 13 minutes, showcasing the deep integration of the internet into daily life.
  • Shifting media consumption: As Brazil's media landscape evolves, we're witnessing a significant change in how its people consume content. While traditional broadcast radio and podcasts are experiencing a decline in listenership (56 minutes and 1 hour 4 minutes daily, respectively), music streaming services have surged in popularity, with Brazilians averaging 2 hours and 4 minutes daily. 

Looking ahead, Brazil's digital landscape is expected to keep growing. With increasing internet affordability, smartphone penetration, and a digitally-savvy younger generation, the number of users and online activity is likely to surge further.
