Google - Statistics & Facts

Google is a California-based, multinational internet company which provides digital products and services such as online search and advertising, cloud computing and software. In October 2020, Google was ranked first amongst the most visited multi-platform web properties in the United States with just over 270 million U.S. unique visitors and a market share of 61.4 percent among the leading U.S. search engine providers. Parent company Alphabet's market capitalization in February 2021 was valued at 1.4 trillion U.S. dollars. In 2015, American multinational conglomerate Alphabet Inc. was created as the parent company of Google and several other companies previously owned by or tied to Google. The reorganization of Google into Alphabet was completed on October 2, 2015.

In 2020, the majority of the company's 181.7 billion U.S. dollar revenues came from advertising through Google Sites or Google Network Sites – in 2020, Google Sites advertising revenue amounted to 123.83 billion U.S. dollars. The annual advertising revenue of Google network websites reached over 23 billion U.S. dollars. Google’s quarterly revenue shows an overall growth from the 41 billion U.S. dollars in first quarter of 2020 to 61.7 billion U.S. dollars in the second quarter of 2021.

There are many localized versions of the Google Search available. Among the leading search engines, the worldwide market share of Google in January 2021 was almost 88 percent. Although Google’s product originally was based upon online search, the company has significantly broadened its services throughout the years. Video content sharing site YouTube was one of Google’s most prolific and expensive acquisitions and has been heavily integrated into Google’s online presence, its worldwide ubiquity changing the dynamics of user generated content and online video curation. YouTube is popular among all age groups and the most popular YouTube partner channel in the United States in August 2020 was Warner Music@YouTube with 37.54 million unique users.

Apart from online search, advertising and online video, Google has branched out into further content, most notably the Android mobile operating system which as of June 2021 accounted for almost 73 percent of the global smartphone operating system market. Content for Android devices can be purchased via the Google Play Store, a digital application distribution platform through which almost 3 million apps are available.

Google has a wide range of products, including but not limited to the Chrome browser and operating system ChromeOS, hardware including the Chromecast and company's series of mobile devices such as the Nexus and Pixel devices, as well as online payment system Google Pay. Recently, Google has been making inroads in the virtual assistant market by releasing Google Now and Google Assistant. The company is currently investing in voice-controlled smart-home speakers and devices such as its Google Home series. With the growth of voice search and increasing usage of digital assistants, this is hardly a surprising move.
