Whatever the reasons, Nikon has run out of time and worn down the patience of its returning clients. I also hear from retailers that most emerging/younger photographers buy other ILC brands (and this is a minority embedded in smartphones).

I certainly am not qualified to render an expert opinion on this but I think you may be right.  Although it doesn't really address the "why".

It could be as simple as Nikon deciding to focus on high end products.  Where's the real entry points for young photographers with limited income?  I also think that a lot of this can be explained simply by late entry into mirrorless.  What 20-something is going to buy into a camera brand with a D3xxx or D5xxx?
