There isn't much point in building a 20-year camera when they're obsolete in five. That won't continue indefinitely. Demand for higher resolutions is waning because the displays we view them on don't have very high resolution. There are other advantages to more resolution, but they aren't compelling to your average snapshot-taker. Image quality will continue to improve, especially for low light shots, but, again, many amateurs are OK with current cameras. I think there will be steady improvement in enthusiast gear, but eventually the laws of physics will limit progress.

Well, obviously I know they don't design it for 20 years because they get obsolete rather fast. But it was just a random number tossed in an example trying to say that why cameras aren't designed to the "best" they can be. Manufacturers don't want it to be the best. They want it to be obsolete. They want it to break down. Etc etc.
