Summary and extracts

1 Synthèse du marché

1.1 Introduction

The search engine market is characterized by online services that allow users to find information on the Web through the use of keywords. These search engines catalog, index, and rank web content to provide the most relevant results to users.

The market consists mainly of generalist search engines, such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo, and specialized search engines that focus on specific segments such as images, video, news, and e-commerce. In addition, there are search engines focused on privacy, such as DuckDuckGo.

Search engines were born in the 1990s, with Archie, the first, in 1990. Later, various engines such as Aliweb and webcrawler were introduced. However, the radical change came in 1998 with the arrival of Google, founded by Sergey Brin and Larry Page. Google revolutionized the way people search for information online, introducing innovations such as web page indexing and thePageRank algorithm. In the 2000s, Google continued to expand, introducing services such as Google Local, Gmail, and Google Analytics. In 2009, Windows Live Search became Bing, becoming a major competitor to Google. The history of search engines is marked by constant innovations and updates. Google, in particular, has continued to update its algorithm, making SEO an increasingly complex challenge. Despite competition from other search engines, Google has remained dominant, significantly influencing the way we access and use information on the Internet.[Support]

The worldwide search engine market was valued at $167.02 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow to $348.80 billion by 2028, growing at an annual rate (CARG) of 11.0% over the forecast period.[BusinessResearchInsights]
