My barrel is in its 6th year and it is good as new. Barrels have been used over 20 years in some cases. There really is no degradation of the barrel taking place.
If barrels concern you there are other choices. Brick bells certainly have a several hundred year life expectancy... Water tanks , stainless steel barrels. Lots of choices in barrels, lots of choices in what style, shape ,design ,rmh you want.
