Java 12 is around the corner, After Java 8's major release Java 9,10,11 came  out with no earth-shattering improvements or features

But honestly, how many software companies really adopted Java8 as their primary programing language.I am seeing companies upgrading their infrastructures
merely because the Tools and Server ecosystem fast adopted java8, but most of the software houses are yet to embrace Java 8 as their fundamental
programming platform...

What are the factors which you think contributing to this blockage?

My two cents: because software houses need to be conservative with the technology they adopted to build their products. Most often there's no reason to upgrade a software that just works, until you are forced to do so.
Moreover, Java is now changing at a too fast pace in my opinion, so I think we'll never see much products targeting Java 10.
It's definitely better to await for a LTS version like java 12.

I thought Java11 was the LTS version; was I mistaken?
