I suspect a similar chart from 2002 would have had a 2% slice for digital cameras and there would be some fool loudly proclaiming that "digital got spanked."

Your analogy fails completely.

Digital had a steady level of growth over film once it became affordable.  There was NO stopping digital.  That was transparent to anyone but the clueless.

Mirrorless has sputtered, coughed, wheezed, and stalled after its early adoption.  By any metric available mirrorless is in decline faster than the SLR market.  By ANY metric available, mirrorless is losing their manufacturers tens of millions of dollars every quarter.  We are all STILL waiting for a single, solitary mirrorless maker to post $1 in profit.  Just a single $1.

Year after year after year after year, mirrorless cameras lose millions upon millions of dollars.
