A number of things come to mind:
1. Compacts such as mirrorless etc are getting pretty darn good and are squeezing the market for low-end DSLRs - time for Canon and Nikon to push upwards, dragging their customers with them, to more advanced and more expensive cameras.
2. Getting people into FF opens up the secondary market for higfh quality lenses.
3. Interest in photography has grown absolutely enormously since digital became the norm. This gives a far greater potential market.
4. China and other countries where buying power is increasing exponentially are extremely important. A wider range of models means more potential buyers climb on board.
Canon and Nikon don't care who buys their products. All money smells the same.

I wouldn't sleep easy at night knowing one is on the loose nearby...
