Privacy-focused search engine DuckDuckGo had another record year in 2021, reaching more than 34,5 billion search queries in the year. In 2020, the search engine managed to gain more than 23 billion queries, which was a big jump from the 15 billion queries in 2019.

Google is the dominating search engine in the world, with Bing, Baidu, Yahoo and Yandex following on the places behind. Statcounter sees DuckDuckGo in the six position with a global market share of 0.66%. Google dominates with 91.4%, followed by Bing with 3.14%. Even Yahoo still has a share of 1.53% of the market.

DuckDuckGo's market share is rising year after year, and it is probably only a matter of time until it surpasses Yandex and Yahoo. Yandex and Baidu are limited to a few regions of the world, and Yahoo search has been neglected for a long time. It is possible that DuckDuckGo will reach the third place in the market in the coming years if growth continues.
