Plenty of other crystal and oscillator manufacturers around.
There's also a change in what kinds of crystals are needed. I suspect
most things being built and designed today use the crystal as a "master
oscillator" that is used to drive some sort of synthesis chain. The need
for "I have to have a 12.345,324 Hz crystal" is going away.
