I "disagree" - ransomware is a high ROI activity for the hackers, it is the monetization of all of the TTPs they curate. Ransomware is what kidnapping, trafficking, extortion, racketeering, loan sharking, tax fraud, was for the mafia. Today, even a corner thug with some skills can execute it on a Mom and Pop deli shop with inadequate security controls to extort a few thousand every so often. 

It is here to stay in form or other for decades.
