This graph is a bit misleading, since it doesn't start at zero. It makes it seem like almost all members now have IPv6 space, when in fact the number without went from 4150 to 3750 or so... an improvement but only a slight one.

The red line. Why is it increasing? Is it because of LIR without IPv6 have been transferred to RIPE?

No, it is mainly because of the policy change documented in ripe-649 that now doesn't require an IPv6 allocation before getting a /22 from the last /8. See more info in the accompanying article:[…]/10-000-lirs-with-ipv6-resources
