Alphabet has evolved from primarily being a search-engine provider to cloud computing, ad-based video and music streaming, autonomous vehicles, healthcare providers and others. In the online search arena, Google is a monopoly with more than 94% of the online search volume and market. Over the years, the company has witnessed increase in search queries, resulting from ongoing growth in user adoption and usage, primarily on mobile devices, continued growth in advertiser activity, and improvements in ad formats. The company is gaining market share in the cloud-computing, driven by continued strength in Google Cloud Platform and Google Workspace. Alphabet also enjoys a dominant position in the autonomous vehicles market, thanks to Waymo's relentless efforts. Also, it has bolstered its footprint in the healthcare industry with its life science division, Verily.
