Mostly because it is easier to use, faster to start, it has a nice documentation and still can evolve well into a big application.

I've seen case where Laravel wasn't able to grow more. I've never seen that case with Symfony.

But yes, it's easier to start. Faster to start I'm not sure, with the new Symfony flex it's really fast now.

When I said it can evolve well into a big application I mean in code organization, not performance. It supports from the most basic type of application that has everything on routes.php and facades to a more enterprise like application that uses dependency injection backed by unit and functional tests. But if performance is a concern I would not choose Laravel.

The code organization was also a problem in my experience.
But it's maybe depend of the team, I wasn't involved into the development. I just casually helped a friend.
