Hello Nick64-ga,

The first searching round almost discouraged me, because all of the
sources found were different websites offering the same industry
report only available for very high fee. Such report provides a wide
range of figures, statistical information, trends analysis, etc.. I
assumed you?re probably not willing to pay between $2,500 and $3,000
just one or a few particular numbers. However, in the end of the
question you?ll have the links to the websites where that report is

Then, I thought it could be quite likely that the figures you are
after were cited in different articles. Since there was no
specification of country or region in the question, I considered any
article in which reasonably recent figures with cited sources were
mentioned. I?ve checked tens of them and selected a handful from which
extracted the following numbers, sorted by year of article
