How many LEGO bricks have been molded? Current tally?
I'm trying to figure out roughly what the trend is for LEGO producing elements-- does anyone have some good data? Here's what I've seen so far:
of 2008, LEGO reported that they had made 400+ billion elements, and
were making 19B per year.
* In 2010, NPR reported that they were making
36B per year.
* In 2013, Business Week reported that they made 45.7B
So, their annual output of elements went up by about 240% in 5 years-- how much are they making now? And how many LEGO bricks have been made as of now? My best guess is that it's between 650-800 billion, probably around 730-ish-billion, but that's just me wildly guessing based on the previous numbers. Given their explosion in 2014 with The LEGO Movie, and other things, perhaps its even higher? Or maybe they've already reached peak production?
Also, anyone have any data before 2008? Or explicitly for other years?
