This is a question about how many orbital launches made each year China, then the same question for India and so on for every country that made orbital launches

Additionaly, is there any country that reached space (100 km) but not orbit?

    $\begingroup$ I'm only going to answer your first question. The second is different enough I would suggest asking it as a stand alone question. $\endgroup$ – PearsonArtPhoto Dec 17 '20 at 14:14
  • $\begingroup$ That is still good, thanks. After you post the answer I will post the India question $\endgroup$ – Joe Jobs Dec 17 '20 at 14:19

Wikipedia maintains a really good set of pages for each year, showing the launch statistics per country for that given year. The page for 2020 is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_in_spaceflight#Orbital_launch_statistics .
