When will camera manufacturers stop raising megapixels?

When customers realise that the number of Mps is not the chief criterion in choosing a camera.

when the sensor is to big to git in the camera , as a rule the smaller the physical size limits the camera , a phone has a 1/4 inch sensor , cameras have apc which is half frame and have full frame sensors , there limit has a long way to go .

In order to place more pixels on in a sensor of any given size, the pixels must be smaller and closer. Based upon physics, there's a limit as to how small and close pixels can be before electrical interference between pixels begins. This limit has been reached with small sensors like the 1/2.7" and 1/2.3" sensors used in smartphones and point-and-shoot digital cameras, Micro 4/3 sensors and APS-C sensors. Full-frame and medium format sensors have more real estate to work with, thus they still can have more pixels in the future. Fujifilm's GFX-100 is a good example of this. The GFX-100 is a medium format camera that has a 100MP sensor.
Thus the only way you'll ever see more pixels in smartphones, point-and-shoots and other small-sensor cameras is when manufacturers begin to use larger sensors.
