It's like that for almost every business model. My husband is in an entirely different industry and all of a sudden a popular material he has been using for years gets discontinued for seemingly no good reason. It's usually due to cost of production of said material versus sales. So, while he thinks it's the most awesome thing in the world and his customers think it's the most awesome thing in the world, the manufacturer's view is: "this isn't selling well, let's stop making it".
Or, he'll get a notice that material prices are being increased...it's a wacky world out there.
