... good OEM bottled inks are (becoming) available probably eating some of the refill market, the refill market will continue compete with very low prices - with questionable properties of the inks - fading persistence - gloss etc , and refill of higher end printers will be further inhibited by the manufacturers with more sophisticated chip coding/protection schemes.
Exceptions aside and including trial and error I paid on average 15 ct/ml for good quality pigment ink, that's about what the OEM bottles cost.
Refill will become a niche market (as @mikling prepared for).
