This trend is analogous to what has happened with the printing industry beginning in the last part of the 20th century. Back then, if you wanted something printed, you went to a specialty shop that had a printing press, and paid a lot to get your printing work done. To keep costs manageable, you printed huge quantities at once. The setup was tedious, the equipment was big and messy, and it required a lot of special skills.
Today, most offices have several printers, and a photocopier. You might still send some work to the printers for large volumes, but for the most part you do everything on your easy to use, small, and affordable desktop printer.
