The overall decline of print media. In the end my guess is only the mainstays of publishing mags will survive, with the occasional limited releases of anything niche, everything else will be digital only.

With the first color e-ink readers hitting the market this year, the trend will likely only go faster...

I guess that explains why the MangaPlus app is asking if you, in any given moment, would like to pay for reading the magazine...
