Google is trying to make the case that there's competition in the search industry before Congress on Tuesday, but the numbers aren't looking in the tech giant's favor.




"In our core search business, consumers can choose among a range of options: Bing, DuckDuckGo, Yahoo, and many more," Adam Cohen, Google's Director of Economic Policy, said on Tuesday.




According to StatCounter, however, Google accounts for over 92% of the search engine market share worldwide as of this June.




On Tuesday, executives from Google Facebook, Amazon, and Apple are testifying become Congress to address concerns over whether their size and influence have become problematic.
