I don't even trust myself having a job in 2018!
Quite frankly, I'm fine in being even the only one using a tool, if
such tool simplifies my work. And this is true for Emacs, at least for
my job, therefore I'm fine with it even if <any-big-company> trends'
will say nobody else is appreciating Emacs.
By the way, I don't see the problem here: have you ever changed a car,
a phone, a television or something else? Changes happen, and in the
unlucky case Emacs will not be supported (to the extent you care), you
will simply change tool.
Don't pretend to use a single tool for any job, use the right one.
And today Emacs is pretty much good for a lot of job, but it does not
mean it will be the only one or the better one forever.
