Google: search engine market share in selected countries 2020

Google is not only popular in its home country but is also the dominant internet search provider in many major online markets, frequently generating more than 80 percent of desktop search traffic. The search engine giant has a market share of 94.87 percent in India and accounted for the majority of the global search engine market, ahead of other competitors such as Yahoo, Bing, Yandex and Baidu.

Google’s online dominance

All roads lead to Rome, or if you are browsing the internet, all roads lead to Google. It is hard to imagine an online experience without the online behemoth, as the company offers a wide range of online products and services that all seamlessly integrate with each other. Google search and advertising are the core products of the company, accounting for the vast majority of company revenues. When adding this up with the Chrome browser, Gmail, Google Maps, YouTube, Google’s ownership of the Android mobile operating system and various other consumer and enterprise services, Google is basically a one-stop shop for online needs.

Google anti-trust rulings

However, Google’s dominance of the search market is not always welcome and is keenly watched by authorities and industry watchdogs – in the past two years alone, the EU commission has fined Google over 8 billion euros in antitrust fines for abusing its monopoly in online advertising. The most recent fine was 1.5 billion euros in March 2019 as the EU commission found that Google had violated antitrust regulations by imposing contractual restrictions on third-party websites in order to make them less competitive.
