There was a reddit thread about this https://www.reddit.com/r/cscareerquestions/comments/buvudx/declining_future_demand_for_swe/

Key point:

Furthermore, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts that jobs for computer programmers will decline by 8% from 2014 to 2024, at least in part due to the ease with which many of these jobs can be outsourced to countries where wages are lower.

Thoughts?

Yeah, I definitely wouldn't worry about it. Outsourcing's been an on-and-off again concern for the better part of two decades now, and look at the job market for developers.
