Over at WPShout Alex Denning wrote a nice piece on what he calls “An Economist’s Look: Competition in the WordPress Theme Marketplace”. Or in other words:
That thought process has lead me to this post, where I’m going to run you through the current state of the marketplace, what impact that has and what that means for consumers.
Alex comes to the following conclusion:
But new entrants to the market? I can’t actually remember anyone who’s broken into the marketplace and become an established site in the last year or two, and that’s not going to change. Have people started selling themes on ThemeForest relatively recently and ended up becoming successful there, though? Yep, and there’s no reason that going to change any time soon.
Is he right? Is that not going to change soon?
