Laravel  was just released in 2011. At that time, it became clear that more and more users want to use online web applications, instead of desktop applications.So Laravel was build with the requirements in mind (quick development, fast applications, good looking UI’s, etc.).

Google Trends in Correspond to the Laravel Framework

As soon as someone, who has previously used Zend, Symfony, CodeIgniter or YII, gets into contact with Laravel, there is a tendency to migrate these systems to this new framework.There is something about it, which makes it very appealing.

For example: In South Asia (India, etc.) easy frameworks like CodeIgniter or YII are preferred, because very quickly applications can be build and it does not take much for a young developer to learn about these tools.But there are some concerns with these frameworks, like security (safety agains hacking, etc.) and performance.

Thus, even the once non-innovation companies which stayed with older frameworks, are now changing to Laravel!
