I customized the CSWP then I exported that web part, After Exporting the CSWP web part the Audience targeting property is missing Which is from the Advanced section. I am not sure why that property is missing.

Please suggest me an idea to solve this issue.

Unfortunately, it's a common issue not only for Content Search Web Part but also for others web part like Content Query web part. what I think it is because of the default FilterByAudience property is set to false.

<property name="FilterByAudience" type="bool">False</property>

The available workaround is to manually reassign Audience Target again!
