From what I have seen here in Australia there is declining numbers of new cachers and of new caches being published. 

 

It depends on where you are. These are the numbers of new caches in NSW over the past decade:

  • 2010 - 621
  • 2011 - 872
  • 2012 - 1223
  • 2013 - 1491
  • 2014 - 1391
  • 2015 - 1568
  • 2016 - 1963
  • 2017 - 1327
  • 2018 - 2360
  • 2019 - 2663
  • 2020 - 1514

Those numbers exclude caches that have since been archived so the earlier years are likely a bit lower than what they really are, but the general trend, at least up until last year, was still up.

 

In my own region (the Central Coast), it's been a pretty steep decline from the heady days of 2014 and 2015 when there were well over a hundred new caches each year to just 18 last year, but this year it's picked up again with 31 so far.
