Conclusion

As we can see it – Magento is one of the most popular e-commerce platforms in Europe. We can notice, that there are fewer companies using Magento on websites with county-specific extensions, however, the general number of companies, using this platform for their businesses websites is huge. It is also obvious, that the most popular e-commerce solutions in each of the countries studied above are those with a local support team, providing support services in a local language.

The main statistical competitor of Magento is Woo Commerce, though, in a global perspective Magento leads. At the same time, we cannot compare these two platforms, as Magento is a standalone e-commerce solution with a great amount of features and functionalities, allowing you to customize your online shop, and requiring a developer in your team; while Woo Commerce is an open-source e-commerce plugin for WordPress, it is quite simple and is a perfect match for beginners. Read this article to know more on differences and similarities of these two most popular platforms.

As for the general Magento usage statistics – there was a rapid growth of a number of websites using Magento in November 2015 – which is a statistical confirmation of the growing popularity of this platform.
