Who are the biggest players in the global presentations industry and what is their share? (by number of users, revenue, etc)

Hello! Thanks for your question about the biggest players in the global presentation industry. The short version is that the leading presentation industries are PowerPoint, Prezi, CustomShow, ClearSlide, and Slideshark. Below you will find a deep dive of my findings.


I first found out which presentation company has the largest share of the presentation software market, and wasn't surprised to find that it was PowerPoint. I then found the alternative presentation companies using a variety of sources, and cross-referenced them to ensure accuracy. I then researched each of their market sizes, revenues, number of users, and employees. Data such as revenue, users, and usage could not be found for Google Slides, Apple Keynote, and CustomSlides. A single Wonder list comprises 10 items, and if you need more entries, you can submit a new request and we'll pick up where we left off.

5. Keynote: part of Apple’s iWork productivity suite. In the Web Analytic category, Keynote Systems has a market share of about 0.1%. I was unable to find number of employees or revenue specifically for iWork because Apple does not break down number of employees or revenue by business segment.
