I would say the main reason is because there's not a 'Save As SVG' in photoshop. Most non tech people haven't heard of SVG and by the time they have, they already have a process for making images and the switch doesn't have enough apparent value on the surface.

Also, illustrator sucks.

Illustrator is an absolutely fantastic tool for print production and design. It is not a suitable tool for SVG, hasn't been for many versions (if it ever was).

Adobe's forgotten, unpromoted, and now discontinued fireworks is their actual svg art tool. Apparently illustrator isn't meant to illustrate.
