mirrorless camera (regardless M43 or APS-C) has open up a market for those who always wanted to have good IQ but always step back due to the bulk of DSLR. it sits well between DSLR and enthusiast compact. And I would see the sales to be increase, especially for the ladies photographer who just don't want to walk around with DSLR. Most of my photography friend (ladies) has switch to mirrorless, because the design is more stylish and trending, smaller package, lighter, and still it gives the IQ which is same/similar to DSLR.

New photographer may dive straight into mirrorless instead of DSLR. existing DSLR user may buy mirrorless as their second camera (instead of enthusiast compact). Basically the market is there and it is really a big one. Thanks to the existence of entry level DSLR, people are more aware towards what a high-end camera can do for them. And if they do not mind the larger size (compared to compact camera), they don't mind jumping into the mirrorless camp and start shooting.

my personal opinion, DSLR market will not shrink. it will still grow, but the rate will surely slower as compared to mirrorless.
