Just for fun I tried google trends


XML is  still topping json by 18:1  ... although the trendlines are down, that
is very common as concepts become mainstream (less people search for them
because they already know)

Nobody knows for sure.

But I think usage has shifted from the trendy/cool/vocal end of the
developer community to the serious corporate backroom space, which
probably means it is making less noise but that usage is actually
growing substantially. And it's not just for documents, where XML and
XSLT are the only game in town; XML is still the workhorse for any data
flow that crosses enterprise boundaries, and will remain so for many
years if only because once entrenched, things like that don't change easily.
