„In most EU member countries, Google controls more than 90 percent of the search market. Sometimes, it controls much more”
Admittedly, the article “Europeans Use Google Way, Way More Than Americans Do” is a bit older. However, Robinson Meyer describes very well the situation of search engine use in Europe. Since 2015 this has not changed significantly.
„In most EU member countries, Google controls more than 90 percent of the search market. Sometimes, it controls much more: In Belgium, Germany, and Finland, it can claim more than 97 percent of all search engine use, according to a 2010 report by marketing research firm PTG Media.
By some measures, that’s some 30 percent more of the search market than Google controls in its home country. Estimates about Google market share in the United States put it between 67 and 75 percent of the search market.”
