Google has release search statistics of 2017, showing the most searched terms worldwide.

It is rather very interesting and the top search terms are heavily dominated by Musicians and politicians with both David Bowie and Prince appearing in the top 10 following their deaths. Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and the word election were also in the lower end of the top 10 and of course Tech such as the iPhone X.  These are the most search terms by categories globally.
