In 2016, Google held 75.8% of the search ad market and in 2017 they are currently holding on to 77.8%, but according to researchers eMarketer this is predicted to increase to 80% by 2019.

Due to this increase it is projected that Google’s competitors including Microsoft, Yelp and AOL are going to lose significant ad market share. Projections say that by 2019 the three competitors will hold:

  • Microsoft: 6.6%
  • Yelp: 5.8%
  • AOL: 1.1%
