I don't doubt that, but there could be multiple causes, among them the
fact that Beta had initially better image quality (and once you build
momentum in some industry, conservation law applies ;-)

But at some point, Beta players were not better than VHS players, at
least at the home use level. And "technically better" is not only
measured by image quality; it's been stated many times that the users
preferred longer recording time (which is, after all, another
technical parameter).
