I am in agreement with this. As soon as the publications were available on the website, and the WT began pushing the electronics I saw this coming; transferring the printing to the congregations/individuals. (Except for the third world countries.)
I also see the WT eventually charging a subscription fee for most of the JW.Org content

I would not be surprised to see them expect JWs to print their own tracts, maybe on a Kingdom Hall printer. Elders could get the electronic file on jw.borg and print off as many as needed.
Of course, each KH would be expected to purchase a high speed high quality color printer and the right paper.
But glory be! The WTS will give them a list of "approved" vendors who just happen to give them a "good" price.
I bet that is in place by 2025 or so.
