Don't you think this genre might fade if it doesn't receive the attention it deserves? It is the kind of music you won't find in mainstream music. There's also the factor of the availability of musical instruments. Companies might close down with limited customers. What's the outlook on this music genre?

It may never reach it's heyday as it was in the 1960's but like other genres such as bluegrass should be maintained by a smaller segment of society. There is no loss of availability to find and listen to many old genres of music today. Much more than ever I'd recon. I don't think there's any lack of acoustic instruments being made yet.
There's a certain charm to old timey music. Like old Gid Tanner & His Skillet Lickers.

Fade completely? No way! It will never be as popular as it once was, but it's too easy to store digital music on the cheap for any genre to become extinct. Folk music will always be around.

Thanks to the internet, there may even be a forum for folk music. I don't think modernity will overpower traditional music. One of the reasons is the competitions held for that. It might even trend as soon as it gains attention.

It's still pretty popular in some places like the Appalachian Region. Besides, it seems like popular genres are cyclical. What once was old will come back into popularity. It might be slightly modernized, though.
