Where do you get your figures from, can you provide a reference source

I doubt if anyone needs several domain names when they are first
introduced to the Internet.  However, as experience and knowledge is
gained a lot of them expand into other domain names.

I'm afraid you must be in your own bubble.  For instance, most of the
business people I know are not just involved in a single business.  I
have found that once they start to go on-line with one business, they
tend to follow with their other businesses.  Some of the businesses they
are involved in are not related and require their own domain names.  I
have seen this a number of times and so can speak from experience and
personal involvement.

Of course there are individuals and businesses that will only require a
single domain name and limited services on the Internet.  

The point being all facets of the market need to be addressed.
