The commercial support lifecycle details for Red Hat Software
Collections are here:

As that says, "New versions will be available only during the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux Production 1 Phase. ", which is around 5 1/2 years
after release, and ends in late 2019 for RHEL 7:

The specific collections *within* the overall SCL release can also
change over time - for example, the PHP 5.6 collection is currently
listed with a projected EOL of April 2018, while the PHP 7.0
collection has a projected EOL of November 2019.

Any assumptions about availability beyond those dates would currently
be speculation, but assuming past patterns continued, there would be
newer PHP SCLs released between now and 2019, so a supported version
would remain available for some time beyond that.
