    Yes it will be needed more than actually what you think.. one the profession is experiencing and embracing alot of technology evolution And the machinery as well.. for example the Lidar ..for instance in topographic this will reduce the field work but will increase time for data analysis inorder to sort out the cloud other words the field work is likely to reduce and the data analysis to make bulky..this will involve in other professionals to analyze the data..  

    Two as the population increases also wrangles increase in ownership of property and this will never end.

    Three .. even for physical planning of cuties and places.. surveying is very vital

    Yes, however I think with advancing technology and the easier it is for others to use the technology you might see the roll of the surveyor regress to more boundary and control surveys.

    Road projects are becoming entirely less hands on as in no blue tops, slope stakes, etc or the contractors are starting to take that on themselves.

    Drones, Lidar, etc have made it easier for other folks to create data that typically surveyors would handle.

    Im not saying I agree with it but it seems to be the way the industry is going.
