Adobe is not selling a commodity application, there are clear and obvious upper limits to how many artists and professionals could possibly buy/use their applications.

Adobe figured they have a hold of the majority of that marketplace, and they are trying to maximize they can extract from it. The subscription model is a no brainer for Adobe as a corporation; it provides a somewhat reliable revenue stream while stifling piracy significantly.
