I don't know much about this topic. Can you point to more information
about this issue? Specifically, can you find a source for your 10
million claim? And are these devices even suitable for Ubuntu anyway?

Meanwhile, I did some research myself. One device that has a 32-bit
UEFI is the HP Stream 7. But the Stream 7 only has 1 GB of RAM which
does not meet the Ubuntu desktop recommended system requirements


Fedora 27 (November 2017) has a goal to have 32-bit UEFI support for
64-bit installs:
