Asia becomes Google's fastest-growing market amid overall slowdown

Google Play and YouTube Music take off in region but leadership questions remain

PALO ALTO, U.S. -- The Asia-Pacific region is now the fastest-growing market for Google's parent company Alphabet as the tech giant reported its slowest overall revenue growth since 2015 on Monday. The region outperformed all other markets, with a near 30% year-on-year growth in revenue.

"The Asia-Pacific continues to be a very strong performer," said Ruth Porat, chief financial officer of Alphabet and Google, in the earnings call. "We are very excited about the opportunities in the region across the board."
