Theres a few commentators that speculate the occasional withdrawal of product might be good for business as it creates want and reduces saturation.

Think of it as a prohibition type phenomenon. What happens to booze sales after a prolonged period of no booze available?
I think that's a pretty good analogy, but it's closer to a certain kind of booze not being available, not all booze in general.

No whiskey is available, so you drink rum. You enjoy the rum and don't feel the need to rush back to the whiskey once it's made available again.

You also have to keep in mind that a lot of people already enjoyed rum and were only just acquiring the taste for whiskey too.
