Historically there have been approximately 11,000 names of pianos listed in the Pierce Piano Atlas. These 11,000 names were manufactured by about 1,000 pianos makers building pianos under different names, a process that is called stenciling. Today, we are left with about 50 global brands of pianos. They are represented below. Are there more piano makers than this? Absolutely. But these manufacturers make up the vast majority of piano sales in the world today. Some of these companies make 10’s of thousands of pianos annually while others are what would be considered ’boutique’ makers, building several hundred pianos per year.
