De l’opportunité à l’impact – Évaluer les avantages économiques, sociétaux et culturels de YouTube en Belgique

Economic Consulting Team

Oxford Economics

Cette étude évalue la contribution de YouTube au PIB belge et au taux d’emploi en Belgique, ainsi que son impact plus large sur la société et la culture.

YouTube permet aux créateurs de contenu belges d’atteindre un large public, tant à l’échelle locale qu’internationale. Cela apporte une valeur économique considérable pour les personnes qui perçoivent des revenus de la plateforme, notamment lorsqu’elles touchent une partie des revenus issus de la publicité accompagnant leurs vidéos. Une présence sur YouTube peut également aider les créateurs à générer des revenus provenant d’autres sources, telles que la vente de produits, les partenariats avec des marques ou les engagements de prestation en direct.

Ces sources de revenus soutiennent non seulement les emplois et les rémunérations des créateurs mêmes, mais également l’activité économique au sens plus large des chaînes d’approvisionnement et par le biais des dépenses des salariés. En tout, notre modélisation économique suggère que l’écosystème de création de YouTube a contribué à l’économie belge à hauteur de près de 39 millions d’euros en 2020 et a contribué la création de 2600 emplois en équivalent temps plein.

Dans ce rapport, nous présentons notre analyse économique ainsi que les conclusions tirées de nos recherches à plus grande échelle par le biais d’enquêtes sur la manière dont YouTube peut soutenir la carrière des créateurs de contenu, soutenir les pédagogues et les étudiants ainsi qu’encourager l’acquisition de compétences et de connaissances parmi les utilisateurs.

Parallèlement aux conclusions de notre modélisation économique et de nos enquêtes, nous présentons une série d’études de cas pour mettre en évidence les réussites personnelles de certains créateurs de contenu belges.
