RP forecast

A question keeps popping up in my mind over Terry Wholer's comments about
the RP industry growth to 1.1 billion by 1999. He gave us a perspective by
showing the bagel industry being a $2.3 billion dollar industry and Barbie
dolls being a $1.4 billion dollar business. Bagels are an individual
preference, Barbie's have found tremendous interest as a collector's item
as well as a little girl's playmate, again individual preference. Anyone
care to forecast what the RP industry growth would look like if RP became
an individual preference rather than a business tool?
