Only occasional anectodal "evidence", sorry.

But for example
refers to a major increase in funding in China, and while AFAIK top
research from China still aims to publish in English venues (which are
still more prestigious and give more exposure), I expect a large
fraction of that research is only published in Chinese (after all, the
Chinese speaking audience is already fairly large ;-)


PS: While the above talks about science in general, my own experience is
limited to computer science, where English is arguably even more
entrenched than in other fields.
