I'd argue that another factor leading to this situation was Walther's historically conservative marketing philosophy. When it comes to full-size combat pistols, for many decades, Walther seemed to believe that European LE/military contracts were their meat and potatoes and that the American commercial market was just icing. The commercial P1/P38, P5, and P88 had very little American market presence. It's quite possible that the success of HK, SIG Sauer, and (most notably) Glock at playing both markets has caused Walther's management to change its philosophy.
I agree with this.

Walther products were also high in price compared to most of the competition (with the exception of H&K) up until the release of the PPQ.
