Beginning of the end of HDD?

It looks like we will see a long term shift to faster persistent memory like 3DXPoint from NAND Flash in performance critical applications and NAND Flash SSD overtaking high capacity HDDs. Maybe HDD will remain in some applications as tape did for backup, but the question is if there's really a long term future for HDD, if volumes are going to continue down, with in reality only two players left in the game.
