Not a problem in itself , other than it must tend to reduce overall consumption, sales and profitability, which may in turn start (or continue) something of a spiral of rising prices. And, for color at least, the ongoing concern of availability of processing services or home chemical kits.

(At least my own freezer holds enough to last me many years, so I'll just keep replenishing stock as it get used ).
Yup.That's been the basic mechanism for at least the last 3-5 years with what's left of demand steadily shrinking against higher film/chemistry/processing prices and limited commercial processing. It's likely not going to be a good year for film.
