Will Haskell be commercialized in the future?

In my opinion there are many more real world problems, that can be most
efficiently solved with functional languages like Haskell, as (software)
industry can think of at the moment; they only know their C/C++, Java,
etc. but can't even think of the power of functional programming or at
least don't take languages like Haskell for full. (Of corse, there are
exceptions to the rule, too.)

What do you think: Will Haskell (the related compilers/tools) be
"commercialized" in the future?
