What do you expect to happen?

Bitcoin's hashrate will reach a more or less stable plateau, with miners finding new ways to cut operative overheads. The hashrate will stop growing and only adjust if a new equilibrium of hashrate and block reward / fee market / BTC exchange rate / electricity cost needs to be found.

I think the share of mining will decrease, because this is simply the primary way of spreading the currency at this moment.
In addition, there are other ways of honest distribution and I think there will be more options in the near future.

I think by the time that happens the technological singularity will have happened, and all of humanity will already have been doomed.

According to my perspective mining will remain but slightly change.

Technologies such as Filecoin, Truebit or Golem etc. probably will keep the demand for "mining" high.

Mining as a waste of energy will vanish and common currencies will go to "proof of stake" (e.g. Ether).

All the best

Still some of the miners being caught by the government and CBI. I don't why they are making bitcoin business as legal here. If that happen we all can do that independently with out any fear do mining at any location in my country. Future mining will completely turned a solar mining or other green energy mining platform and updated miners will come.

I wonder about the future of mining as well and I'll break this into two sections.

Bitcoin: As someone else mentioned there seems like there will be a point where the hardware will physically max out and then what? Will something better come along and mining will become profitable again or will only heavily invested people with money for the high dollar mining hardware be able to mine? I'm assuming the home miner with less than five miners will not be able to mine and be profitable.

Ethereum/alt coins: I'm currently exploring getting into mining and thought hard of going this route instead of the bitcoin route. BUT will alt coins such as Ethereum ever catch on? Bitcoin has as many retailers are beginning to open up to he idea of accepting bitcoin and even the news features the bitcoin stock prices. But you never heard about Ethereum or any of the other altcoins so is it worth it to jump into altcoin mining? Will the future be bright for mining altcoins?

The only way around when the future of ASIC miner has reach its physical limit is to increase its miner quantity but the tendency of mining hasa very thin margin of profit due to high electricity cost. Bitcoin mining farm is more power hungry combined than a data center of Apple or IBM supercomputers. Besides it is not also an environment friendly but mining capitalist and investor don't care about that, as long as they have profit, same goes with other mining practices like coal or nickel.
