Most of the new theme in themeforest is responsive web. Is non-responsive web still has a future and the market in the TF?

I think that’s hard to say. It’s really only become such a popular thing recently due to the increase in the mobile/tablet market. It will definitely become more widely adapted this year, but I don’t think fixed-width is going away completely anytime soon.

Responsiveness is a trend here on TF. But nobody is saying that non-responsive WEB is going away. Mobile devices are getting larger screens with larger resolutions. So non-responsive sites are looking good on them.

Moreover, I think that hypertrophied responsiveness as we see it today will pass relatively soon. Giving way for more smart responsive layout: e.g. some elements will be enlarged on mobile devices, but overall look, feel and functions will be the same of non-mobile version.

P.S. All IMHO

I think responsive is simply overrated.

I see clients understanding and asking for responsive the same way they currently ask for HTML5 .

By this I don’t mean to say responsive is bad, but rather that it’s a cool train to be on, even if many don’t know if it’s the right train to take :)

Don’t own a smartphone, but browsing regular websites on iPad is almost the same experience as on desktop.

I regard it as an option. And hopefully the market also think as I thought…

At least, the option market is now added by this new trend…

Needs that will determine, right?
