Spanish term or phrase: mercado remanente y subordinado al éxito previo
• Cualquier producto cultural realizado con criterios empresariales y de mercado tiene como nota definitoria el riesgo. La viabilidad y competitividad de las empresas que actúan en el sector está ligada a la aceptación por parte del público de un producto de naturaleza única de, generalmente, alto coste de producción, distribución y promoción, con numerosos sustitutivos genéricos (al ser productos únicos carecen de productos sustitutivos estrictos), con un coste marginal de difusión muy reducido, una vida útil incierta y de un valor residual prácticamente nulo (en algunos casos puede existir ***un mercado remanente y, en todo caso, subordinado al éxito previo).**

English translation:overstock market subject to prior success
Explanation:
Definitely not "secondary market" as that is usually a term in finance referring to products such as commercial paper or other instruments which are sold a second time.

I had a few options in mind:
- remainders market (but this is just for books)
- surplus market (but this is mainly for army/navy)

So I tried "overstock market" and got a few hits:

LisaMac - In many cases "surplus market" and "overstock market" are synonymous. Here are some hits for "surplus market":

" FreeMarkets targets surplus market with buys"
http://news.cnet.com/2100-1017-238279.html

"Understanding the Surplus Market: A Primer on Categories of Merchandise for Sale"
https://www.gencomarketplace.com/sws/action/Resources?menuTa...

The term surplus market also has two specialty meanings you don't want here:
- "excess and surplus market" (for insurance)
- "army/navy or military surplus market"
