Hey,

The IPV6 has come into existance due to the scarsity of the IP addresses. The IPV4 provided at max 2 power of 32 addresses and due to unlimited growth of internet IPV6 was necessary. However it takes time for complete IPV6 era as almost all the protocols (networking - IP ) in existance are written for IPV4 and migration is a pain. Meanwhile the Private IP concept with NAT (Network address translation) has temporarily reduced the need for IPV6.
