How Big is Bonsai Worldwide?

Found this article very interesting on Bonsai Empire today. I often wonder how big is bonsai in Ireland? How many people do bonsai in my locality that i know nothing about. It is something that intrigues me as i often question why is bonsai so big in one part of the country and not in an other. Or are their just a lot of people that do bonsai and are quite happy doing it alone and learning as they go along. Something very interesting. You can check your country on the link and compare how you feel, regarding how big bonsai is in your home place.

Heres the link.
