Don’t forget that most in-house corporate apps are still written in Java or C++.

Also, I’ve read many reports that Electron apps are enormously resource-hungry. They’re bloated and slow. If this is true, Electron’s success in this market will be very, very limited. Only people who don’t really care about the performance of their desktop apps will tolerate Electron.
