Not necessarily. It is also possible that if a company has a product and sees value in Emacs then it develops the necessary support packages for Emacs using its own resources.

For example, Ericsson created a programming language (Erlang) for which the default IDE is Emacs:

        http://www.erlang.org/faq/x652.html#AEN691

This is useful and makes Emacs more valuable (one more supported language).
