Three scripts represent nearly 90% of all registered IDNs: Han (associated with Chinese language), Latin, and Cyrillic script. Major world scripts such as Arabic and Devanagari which support some of the world’s top 10 most spoken languages are barely represented in IDNs.

Since 2014, there has been a relative increase in the proportion of Han script domains from 34% to 51%.  In the same period, there has been a relative decline in the proportion of Latin script IDNs, from 41% to 23%, and Cyrillic script which has remained consistent at between 12-14% since 2014.
