CP/M was huge in the US, especially among the S-100 system users. It was
a pretty narrow window though - from probably 1978-1982. Kaypro had a
good portion of the market as well, but like pretty much all the other
manufacturers of CP/M machines, the IBM PC compatible juggernaut beat them
cold before they fully understood the fight. I'm not aware of any CP/M
machine manufacturer that was able to successfully transition to the PC
compatible market. Some (like Kaypro) tried with offerings like the
Kaypro 16 and Kaypro 2000, but I suspect at that point it was too little,
too late. They simply couldn't compete with the uber cheap hardware
coming in from overseas.
