Drawbacks of scraping Instagram?
No advanced targeting possible
There is no way to filter users by follower count, category, geographical location etc.
No publicly accessible pages
Instagram now requires you to login to view any profile. Hence, scraping it now means that you have to do browser automation to login before scraping it. This means that you run risk of banning your account.
No keyword & negative keyword based search
Instagram has a terrible keyword search on bios and definitely no way to exclude profiles using a negative search.
