You can buy heaters with a 12 year warrenty.
It depends on the quality of the unit you start with along with your water quality. A water softener on units help in some cases. Even water pressure will have an impact. Regular flushing of the tank and general preventive maintenance will also prolong life.
15 years is not uncommon where I'm at.
