The trend is pretty clear.

I think this trend is accelerating because Canon and Nikon stopped releasing cheap new DSLRs, where the bulk of the sales was. They now offer a few new cheap mirrorless instead. You can ask if the demand drives the supply or vice versa is also true to an extent.

So DSLR is an endangered species but not necessarily critically endangered.

This chart shows percentage/portion of the ILC market.  That market is shrinking in absolute size.  So DSLRs are a shrinking portion of a shrinking market.  So the question is... how small is viable?
