I believe consumer demand for performance is increasing more slowly than camera capability.

You could say the same thing about automobiles.  People do not typically buy the least, smallest they will typically use - instead they buy for what they want to be doing.

It's possible Canon and Nikon will retreat from APS-C market.  In fact, it's the norm for incumbent manufacturers to get crowded out from below by newer players (in this case, APS-C and m43 mirrorless are the ones coming in from below.)

Anything is possible, but the numbers say otherwise.

| When 8" drives were the established technology and 5.25" drives began competing, 8" drives were superior in capacity, speed, and latency.

8" drive platters were in washing machine or refrigerator sized cabinets - not the same market at all (poor analogy).
