A Half-Trillion Dollar Market
WP Engine has published a search study that pegs the WordPress economy at nearly $596.7 billion (USD) as of 2020. It’s expected to grow to $635.5 billion by the end of 2021. 😲
Collaborators for this report include prominent agencies, plugin companies, and media sources — including Post Status.
Matt Mullenweg has estimated the WordPress economy (excluding eCommerce) in the billions — $10 Billion in 2018 — but half a trillion dollars is the highest number I’ve seen posted unofficially or otherwise.
