I was wondering around the same thing.And when i did bit of surfing i found out this.
"Open source ERP :accounts for a tiny portion of the overall ERP market, which is dominated by a handful of commercial products offered by well-known enterprise software vendors such as SAP, Oracle, Microsoft and Sage.
Although there are plenty of open source ERP projects, their combined market share is perhaps as little as 1 or 2 percent. That's despite the many known advantages of open source software, such as the fact that it is usually free to download and can be customized as much as needed."
1 to 2 percentage market share by opensource ERPs, now if we assume that odoo have covered more than 50 % opensource erp market than also that's nothing compared to overall market shares by competitor products.
But the positive side is most of traditional competitors target the enterprise level market they do not target SMEs like odoo.

So whatever market share covered by competitors reflects only big players,who have implemented ERP system.For SMEs i think odoo has lots of market potential right now and even more in near future.
With Evolved Inventory + supply chain ,Accounting(odoo 9 ) and Manufacturing (Odoo 10) odoo will be hot cake for SMEs working industrial product manufacturing.And with website+eCommerce+digital marketing tools+Content management tools application suite odoo will be key player for the market where growth rate of start up companies is very high.
