15 Most Popular Magazines in the World

Walk to your nearest bookstore, and it seems there are a million options for magazines, but do you know which are 15 most popular magazines in the world?

A perfect day, in my opinion, is Sunday morning coffee, breakfast on the table and my favorite magazine in my hands. Although we are in the era of technology and everything is available to us on the Internet (even all magazines) some people still love to feel the paper in their hands and buy a favorite magazine to flip through the pages while drinking their morning coffee. There are a million of magazines around the globe and each country prints hundreds of different magazines every day, but there are some magazines published in millions of copies, and that makes them some of the best magazines in the world. From the most popular fashion magazines in the world to the upscale luxury magazines for the rich, there’s really something for every reader.

15 Most Popular Magazines in the World


From National Geographic to Good Housekeeping, the best magazines in the world, are mainly the ones that have been around for a while now. Take a look at our list of the best selling magazines in the United States, and you will see my point. Obviously it takes time to build a loyal reader base. For example, the top fashion magazines in the world like Vogue and Vanity Fair to name a couple popular fashion magazines, have readers who rely on them to decide what their next season’s wardrobe will include.

Which are the top ten magazines in the world? What makes one magazine so popular? We decided to go beyond just ten (since there are so many) to answer those questions. Our list of most popular magazines 2017, is ranked by circulation, which is based upon the number of copies distributed, on average, for each issue. There are different kinds of topics for each magazine, and the most popular are fashion magazines, travel magazines and magazines about political issues are also very popular. Today, most of the topics are available on the Internet, as the development of technology has led to the fact that with just one click we can find out all the necessary information that is drawing our attention. However, magazine printing and the purchase of newspapers are still very much alive. Although the number of print media has dropped significantly in the last decade, it remains trendy, so it is necessary to process topics that are very interesting and current. For our research for top 15 most popular magazines in the world, we sought help from Audit Bureau of Circulations, Alliance for Audited MediaConsumer Reports and Statista.

Let’s take a look at the top 15 most popular magazines in the world. You might just find something new, to grab your curiosity.
