Maker’s movement is gaining members and popularity every day running, impacting nowadays on the way we make, build, industrialize goods.

CustomMade prepared an interesting infographics showing where we are now:

The maker movement is made up of some 135 million adults in the U.S., however, it’s more than just a U.S. movement. Maker faires that celebrate the movement have popped up in Japan, Italy, Norway, and Chile. Makers use their skills to craft items such as clothing, baked goods, jewelry, and art; contributing $29 billion to the U.S. economy annually.

From 3D printers to laser cutters—makers employ various tools to create their goods. Many gather at makerspaces where they share these resources. Makerspaces are havens for techies, artists, and entrepreneurs. Through crowdfunding, makers are able to facilitate small-scale funding for these gathering spaces.
