Peak Oil, according to M. King Hubbert's Hubbert peak theory, is the point in time when the maximum rate of petroleum extraction is reached, after which the rate of production is expected to enter terminal decline. Global production of oil fell from a high point in 2005 at 74 mb/d, but has since rebounded setting new records in both 2011 and 2012. There is active debate as to when global peak oil will occur, how to measure peak oil, and whether peak oil production will be supply or demand driven. According to the theory, when Peak Oil is reached, the world dramatically changes!
Peak Pinball is the term I have coined which refers to the next and final downturn in the pinball industry, and specifically the theoretical point in time when the maximum amount of pinballl machines are squeezed into the homes and garages of pinball enthusists world-wide, assuming no reversal in the lack of interest in pinball machines by people who frequent arcades, after which the rate of production of new pinball machines will enter terminal decline.
Will Peak PInball be realised?
How close are we to Peak Pinball?
