While I see a possible growth in pump play in general, and in guns with stock-style horizontal feeds, I don't think that the use of 12-gram cylinders will, or should, see a big increase. It just doesn't make any economic sense for players to intentionally switch to guns that require a constant supply of disposable cylinders when the infrastructure for all-day-air compressed gas fills is already available.
I've had my Phantom for right around a year and have only run it on 12-grams once, and even then I felt like I was throwing away perfectly good money (and literally, throwing away perfectly good steel).

Of course, I remember when Stock-class was just "Paintball." We didn't have a choice (besides Splatmasters, PGPs & Nelspot 007s).
I can definitely see a major surge of pump players - happening now and into the future, as it seems that people get hooked rather easily (I certainly did, once I went back to it). Along with that, you'll find that small minority of SC players will increase along similar lines - still a small number, but sizable nonetheless.
For the "next big thing" - I will be very interested to see what the .50 fallout will be and if another manufacturer steps in with something really new and improved.
