Finally with v4 address space exhaustion, there is slightly more pressure, but there won't be a lot of pressure until all the RIRs run out. (How close is ARIN anyway?)
I think just RIPE and ARIN running out will be all the pressure that's needed. APNIC is already out.
RIPE will reach its last /8 (basically out) in Sept. Many of the remaining address will be given out for CGNs and NAT64 (transition mechanisms), so they'll essentially be out then. They've already started allocating of 5/8 which is used by Hamachi. Would suck to be getting any new IPs from them now.

My guess for ARIN is Q2 of 2013 for exhaustion.
