Pokémon card production increased 27% over the previous fiscal year ending in June with 9.1 billion cards produced according to figures posted on The Pokémon Company website.
That is a considerable jump from production between 2020 and 2021 where card growth was only 12%.
To date 43.2 billion Pokémon cards have been produced in 13 languages and sold in 77 markets.
The Pokémon Company is a private company so there is not any data on how trading cards have contributed to the bottom line, but safe to say the Japanese company is doing well.
For the fiscal year ending in February 2022 the company had total net sales in all categories of $1.6 billion, up 70% from the previous fiscal period with operating profit at $460 million with a net profit of $320 million
And according to other sources trading cards are having a good year.
Asmodee, a distributor of Pokémon cards, credited trading cards as a key contributor to their gains in the last quarter.
