A member of our VKontakt Russian-language group, Sergey Ternopolsky, has analysed the number of 2700 players, using the FIDE ratings lists as his basis. And this is what he finds. 


The author identifies four periods:
1. 1970-1990. Two 2700s on average (a trio of Fischer, Karpov, Kasparov).
2. 1990-2007. An average of one extra per year (Gelfand, Ivanchuk, Shirov...)
3. 2007-2012. A big jump of 4.6 a year.
4. 2013-2015. Stable at 47-48 players 2700+, including 2800s.
