I'd say it depends on what layer you're dealing with. If you're a good developer, modularizing your application allows you to scale up faster without making complete changes. That's always a challenge when you ask developers to change something because they’ll say, "I need to rewrite everything to do that." But if they've done the right job and put those things in smaller containers that are manageable, then that layer works if you have proper engineers. But I don't think the layer between multiple applications and solutions is ever going to materialize.

The world of ​microservices has not fully become a reality and that has led to more complications. Given that everybody's moving to containerization now, that is adding more complexity.

I think there will be examples of highly popular microservices, but in general it will not have a significant impact on the application development process.  Well-written code that can be reused and inserted into other applications is an ideal environment that has been addressed by the open source community.  However, it will continue to be difficult to satisfy all platforms, browsers, mobile devices, or languages.

They are definitely already here. We leverage them for breaking our infrastructure into smaller segments. It does come with some complexities that need to be worked out but it has been a nice benefit for specific use cases.  They are not for everyone so be prepared to create a solid architecture before trying to dip your toes in. 
Sr. Managing Director in Finance (non-banking), 5,001 - 10,000 employees
Yes !  Microservices makes sense as they just make the code modular and any future changes relatively easier. With the advancement of cloud, containers, open source, DevOps etc. Microservices looks more real ! 
CTO in Healthcare and Biotech, 2 - 10 employees
I’d say they have. Even in healthcare where the adoption is just slow moving, more and more is being containerized. Security issues have pretty much been ironed out as well.
Chief Technology Officer in Finance (non-banking), 11 - 50 employees
If a microservice adds value people will use them. At the moment, the idea sounds great but the reality there is no real "killer app". A solution looking for a problem.
Director in Healthcare and Biotech, 201 - 500 employees
Microservices have been developing and growing over the years. Coders have been modularizing code snippets and APIs for years. Now the microservice architecture follow similar pros and cons but a higher level of organization and manageability is the end result. 
CIO in Services (non-Government), 1,001 - 5,000 employees
They have arrived and we use them.
VP of IT in Real Estate, 5,001 - 10,000 employees
I'd say it's here. We see dramatic change in how applications are being architected.
