It comes down to the average size of a majority of humans wherever they are in the world and what size of bicycle can fit and work for that majority, and it turns out that bikes with 26" tires can pretty much do all of that. 26" bikes are commonly made to fit humans from about 5'2" to 6'3", which is a common height range around the world, indeed, manufacturers often make only one frame size for 26" bikes, which fits the shortest with no modification and the tallest might need only a longer seat post.
