NPR published an article that shows just how far film has fallen from grace.
At the turn of the 21st century, American shutterbugs were buying close to a billion rolls of film per year. This year, they might buy a mere 20 million, plus 31 million single-use cameras – NPR
I don’t think film will ever be totally removed from the market, but it’s certainly becoming a niche area of photography.
An interesting read if you have the time.
