"A pesar de eso es cada día más popular."

Wouldn't this sentence need 'el' before 'es' to signify that it's talking about a person and not implying 'es' as 'it is'?

It is fine both ways. Without "él" it is a bit ambiguous, but there may be enough context from the previous sentence or from who is talking to help you figure out who the subject is.

"Despite that, every day it's more popular" was accepted to my delight and pleasure--and, of course, surprise, too. I assumed the sentence was not about a person who generally doesn't become more popular day by day. Fads, however, become more popular. "Hang gliding is a dangerous sport. Despite that, everyday it's more popular."
