Seems like the two main issues would be 1) how transistors are made, and 2) what they are made of.

Here's a link with more info:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moore's_law

Why don't you read through that, and tell us what you think about the future of Moore's Law....
 
Look up "quantum tunneling".
We can still make transistors smaller, but they wont work though :(
