SQLite is not a competitor to SQL Express, because the latter is still an out-of-proc server. It is a competitor to SQL CE (which shipped its last release to date in 2011, so...).

The nice thing about SQLite is how little it assumes about the world outside. That made it easy to run in WinRT application sandbox with minimal changes; and for quite a while, it was the only local DB readily available to WinRT code written in C# or C++ (JS got IndexedDB).
