Many of the developers we have heard from believe that gutenberg is an attempt to replace or challenge page builders. With the new block system, it looks like it. What are your thoughts on the topic?

Hmm... Time will tell.
If your new to WordPress and start using the block builder I doubt you'll worry too much about page builders and vice versa...
But I think this is very early days and block builder has a lot of maturing to do.

I think we're a way off replacing page builders or even challenging them. It may be a step closer once sidebars/menus are part of blocks. What I would say is it's a real chance for theme creators to compete with page builders if they develop blocks that can replicate what the page builders can do. I see the biggest "stumbling block" :) for it to really challenge the need for page builders is what blocks will be available in core in the future, if you need to install 15 block enabled plugins to replicate what a page builder can do then it won't even challenge page builders.

The block editor will not replace page builders currently. In fact, if you use a page builder to design all of your website then chances are there will not be any change to your normal workflow. I have not had any major change unless I want to do a page or post without the page builder. I use Elementor Pro as my preferred builder.
