Most of broadcast, media faculties are using Windows and Linux based platforms and they will need backward compatibility for another decade. Next to all broadcasting networks in USA have something running 32-bit and no plans for upgrade.
In 2018 I have to run old application from the turn of millennium to upgrade old router at one the NHL team facilities. Manufacturer of this fifteen years old router is still providing parts, service and new firmware for it. Running this app was like back to Windows 3.1.

I think at some point 32-bit might be cut by CPU manufacturers, not OS providers.
