Spanish term or phrase: se ha mantenido
Se refiere a una marca de champú (reflejado en las ventas).

"¿Por qué XXX se ha mantenido?" (XXX nombre de la marca de champú).

Aquí mantenido tiene un sentido "positivo" , ya que acto seguido se explica que:

"...por la mejora de promociones y publicidad...".

Lo que más adelante se contrasta en sentido negativo con la pregunta complementaria

"¿Por que no ha crecido más?"

De momento interpretaría:

"Why (has) XXX remained stable?" o quizás mejor "Why (has) XXX held up?" El contexto pediría pasado simple, creo, de ahí los paréntesis.

Y como decía, dicha pregunta se contrasta con la complementaria, en sentido negativo:

"Why hasn't it grown more?" ("didn't it grow more").
