Does PHP have a future in 2021?

PHP is the language that can be used to build any kind of website, from simple landing pages and static websites to complex web platforms like Facebook. Flexibility and high speed are the main reasons we use PHP in web projects.

Web development is a rapidly changing field with trends and new technologies emerging frequently. One of the most popular programming languages that can be used to effectively implement the latest solutions in web applications is the PHP programming language. Some say that if these platforms were built today, they wouldn’t choose PHP. However, I do not agree with these statements. PHP is comfortable, easy to learn, has many useful libraries, detailed documentation, and most importantly, a great community.

As of January 2021, 79% of websites were built in PHP and there is no indication that they are losing ground. In November 2020, PHP developers released their eighth version with major updates that focus on PHP performance and make web development even smoother and easier. More and more businesses need valid and effective web solutions that successfully meet the demands of their business and their customers. However, hiring a team of IT professionals to build your web application is a pretty expensive idea. For this reason, many companies prefer to outsource the development of their web solutions.

Outsourced custom PHP development services are affordable for SMEs and even startups. Therefore, the trend of outsourcing PHP web development will continue to gain popularity in 2021. According to Statista, spending on IT services worldwide will increase to $1 trillion and is expected to increase by 4.1% from 2021.
