I think it would be more accurate to say that the days of the large
film producing companies like Kodak, Ilford, Agfa and Fuji are numbered.
I think it is a fair bet that color film will mostly be dead in less 
than 5 years. Black/white production will shift to small companies like
EFKE, who will continue to supply the die hards with a limited selection
of stocks, but prices will most likely go up.

Maybe Kodak or Fuji will continue to sell a very limited line up, although 
I think that is very also very unlikely in light of having met a few Kodak
bean counters.
