99% of chainring / cog wear is due to chain wear ("stretch") and the chain being dirty and / or not properly lubricated. If you maintain your chain properly and replace it at the first sign of wear (I use a gauge), non-shifting sprockets will last for many thousands of miles. If you want to maximize sprocket life, use 1/8" thick chainrings and cogs.
