Is The Use Of PTZ Cameras Declining? At What Rate?

IPVM has touched on this topic over the years. My understanding is that PTZ cameras are used much less now than they were 15 years ago. The main reasons being higher resolutions and multi-imager cameras. Does anybody have rough numbers? Or even an educated guess?
