Typescript is on my list to "re-learn" after I learned it but then did not use it because the job I was in at the time did not require it 😅 How many companies these days are looking for developers that use Typescript? I still keep finding jobs that just ask for Javascript.

I recently changed job position and at least here in Switzerland/Zurich I was surprised at how many companies are now asking for it (we also have a lot of Angular jobs here). There are many banking/financial/pharma/insurance companies, and TypeScript seems really popular now, more so than three years ago when I was last looking, especially in the higher-paying positions.

Angular and Stencil are both using per default Typescript. Companies using these are de facto using it.

React, Vue, Svelte (probably), Gatsby etc. can be used with Typescript. Therefore I would say that at least some companies are using it 😉.

P.S.: isn't Vue 3 event written with Typescript too?
