Kevlar sidewalls?

So Goodyear makes three tires with Kevlar sidewalls. Supposed to offer superior puncture resistance. They are slightly heavier and cost is much more than comparable tires like the KO and the AT2.

So if Kevlar is such hot shot, why are other brands not jumping on the bandwagon and offering the same? Why isn't Toyo, dick cepeck, or BFG not offering a Kevlar impregnated tire to tha masses?

Cost is similar. At least when I was looking earlier this year at 35x12.5x15 it was. Perhaps its patented? (If I came up with a really good idea to add strength and puncture resistance to tires for minimal weight gain I would patent the }#%^ out of it and sell it to BFG)
