Which country do you think Mac OS X has the largest market share? My first guess would have been the United States with Canada second. I was wrong on both accounts as the US is ranked third and Canada fifth. Pingdom.com created a few graphs based on StatCounter data.
Switzerland has the highest Mac OS X market share with 17.61% followed by Luxembourg with 15.79% and then the United States with 15.36%. Europe actually has 5 of the top 10 spots for OS X market share. Which shouldn’t be a huge surprise as Europeans are not big Microsoft fans as is shown with the Firefox market share numbers on the old continent.
When OS X market share is broken down by continent you see a different story.
Overall European Mac OS X market share is only 6.23%, the third highest. North America has the most market share by continent with 14.09% with Oceania/Australia (read New Zealand / Australia) in a close second with 13.71%. Followed by a steep drop to Europe and another fall for Asia, Africa and South America.
Apple has plenty of room to grow in all markets but no where to go but up in Asia, Africa and South America.
