With the amount of money you spend on a golf simulator, you would think it would be easy to find a report on golf simulator market share. It has been a singularly difficult task and about the only share metrics come from the manufacturers themselves.
So I'v decided to do my own sort of market share estimate by comparing how often each brand is searched using the Google keywords planner. It allows you to enter search terms and see the average monthly searches on a particular keyword or group of words.
This is an imperfect science, but the results are somewhat intuitive as the larger brands appear to be searched more frequently. In all cases I added either "simulator" or "golf simulator" to the search term so some of the names with generic meaning did not pull in searches about other topics.
Here are the results:
An interesting point of note is that "golf simulator" alone is searched on average 14,800 times a month.
Let me know if there is a brand I've missed.
