As long as Ancient Greek texts are read in the original, there will be a need for lexicons, that is to say, tools which provide, first and foremost, meanings of words, as well as a certain amount of other helpful information on occurrences, collocation, and the like. The form that they take - whether it is to be electronic or some other - is not an issue for the present purpose: we can safely leave this to common sense and market forces. But whatever form they might have, there will be a need for tools which tell the reader of a Greek text the meaning of words not already known. Lexicons will continue to be produced to meet this need.
