41 Statistics about Magento in 2024 You Will be Interested in

Last Updated on February 8, 2024 by James Wilson

Magento is an open-source eCommerce platform based on PHP. Magento powers 0.8% of all websites, which includes those not using a CMS platform. Magento takes 9th place in terms of worldwide CMS usage.


Whilst 9th place might not seem that impressive, it’s worth considering the numbers we’re working with. WordPress holds a massive hold on the market, with 35.7% of all websites using WordPress, and 63.1% overall CMS market share.

Joomla, who comes in second, only powers 2.4% of all websites, so when you look at the figures excluding WordPress, there’s not really much in it in terms of competition.

Since 2018, Magento is now under the Adobe umbrella. Because of this, its expected growth and population is going to rise, making it a bigger and better eCommerce platform in the future.
