I am in the Drupal market for almost 3 years. At the end of each year, I have to conduct a business review to set strategies for the coming year. One of the most important criteria to be reviewed is the market trend. I am always looking for a growth of Drupal and how it compares to other open source CMSs. This year, I decide to make a 3 year review of Drupal, Joomla and Wordpress from 2008 to 2010. This review does not mean to be a professional market analysis report, it is only my personal observations

Background

I am used to read the Open Source CMS Market share report from Water & Stone at the end of each year, starting from 2008. In 2010, when I had the report, I got an idea to compare 3 reports to exact valuable information about Drupal and other open sources.

The big 3 of the market is Drupal, Joomla and Wordpress. Almost of my customers demands from those three. My focus is Drupal, and I want to see after 3 years, where Drupal goes, where the other two have come up with. After comparing all figures, I saw only a small amount of information that were consistent over the years and I could extract some valuable information. I also searched for more information in Google about trends of those 3 CMSs.

Here are what I found.
