So, within 3 years of the first Bakelite plant opening in Germany, a competitive product was on the market. In the US, the same thing happened and Baekeland successfully sued for patent infringement. Not sure how things went in Europe but there were dozens of European phenolic products by the early 1920s, before the original patents ran out.
