Today we’re going to take a prolonged, in-depth look at the content management system market landscape. 

Globally, the CMS market is expected to grow between $7.1 billion in 2020 to $18 billion in 2025. This represents a compound annual growth rate of 20.5%. 

This has generated an explosion of content platforms over the years, catering to broad types of organizations from small-scale shops to enterprise size. Despite the endless supply of platforms available, it remains dominated by one particular content management system. 

Using the data-collection business W3Techs, which stores information across various types of technologies used for building websites, we can clearly see the hierarchy built into the CMS landscape.

Of course, as we all know, the king continues on its throne; WordPress remains by far the most popular content management system on the market, with its position firmly cemented. 

As of April 22, WordPress was used by 33.1% of all websites on the internet. This gives WordPress a content management system market share of 64.3%. 

One-third (33.1%) of all websites don’t use a recognized content management system that is recorded by W3Techs. This likely implies that these organizations are using a custom-built content management system solution or uses a hybrid content solution. Content Management System Market Share by Platform
