"The market for open source hardware is hotting up, with the top
13 companies in the space turning over nearly $50million last year
– according to Phil Torrone, designer at Adafruit industries.
Speaking with Adafruit's founder Limor Fried at the O'Reilly Foo
Camp East in the beginning of May, Torrone also claimed that there
are now nearly 300 significant open source hardware projects in
development and predicted that the market will grow to over
$1billion by 2015."
