Envato Market Hits USD $1B in Community Earnings
Envato Market has reaffirmed its status as one of the world’s most successful online marketplaces, after passing $1 billion USD in community earnings.
This means that we have now helped creatives earn more than $1.3 billion USD across all of our sites, which is a reflection of the amazing talent and skill our valued Author community possesses.
More than 52,000 creatives earned more than $96m USD on Envato Market in the last 12 months alone.
Themes, templates, plugins and code were the highest-earning content types for 2021, though more audio and graphics creators earned via the marketplace than any other type of creator in the last year.
Composer and musician Jake Stein aka Jakestein on Envato Market said AudioJungle is indispensable for his work.
Simply put, Envato has given me a big creative and inspirational boost and continues to do so each time my track sells. My journey with Envato has seriously shaped who I am as a musician and producer. A platform like this is the best encouragement, challenge, and reward a solo musician like me could ask for.

Video assets also continue to be incredibly successful. Searches by new customers for video templates were among the most popular in the last 12 months.
Ukrainian video producer Sergey Zavarykin aka Zavarykin Visuals has almost 500 stock footage items for sale on Envato Market.
I love to wake up with a sense of freedom and as a visual artist, I want to have the opportunity to create new things. Selling on Envato has allowed me to take the time to make my dreams come true, such as filming my own web series and short films.
