What do people think lies in store for the future of mining coins from the point of view of both pooled mining and mining individually?

What do you mean by that? Solo mining has considered dead for some years now unless you have some serious power at home..

Well I think that pools will become increasingly popular and solo mining unusual due to how unlikely it is to solve blocks with your own more basic equipment.  Then what'll happen is that most people will start gravitating towards just a few pools because even most mining pools will be unable to solve blocks often with their lower hashing power.  This could result in nearly full centralisation of Bitcoin mining, and casual miners will mostly be paying fees to only a few monopolies such as Antpool which charge quite high fees.  Or, in a more optimistic scenario, the pools will respect the miners and miners will turn to less evil pools which allow sharing of transaction fees etc.

and more and more centralized...
