That's like asking why are there so many different cars on the road. People have different tastes.

They're for protection.

Because the iPhone has a large marketshare and, having only one model, is more standardized than other smartphones. It's worth the R&D investment in designing cases and apps. There are thousands of Android models and no one phone comes close to having the marketshare of the iPhone. There are probably more cases for Android phones in aggregate, but each only works with certain models.

You put a case on your iPhone to create higher resale value.

Only indirectly increase the value. The case generally protects the phone from bumps and scrapes but doesn't actually affect the value in any appreciable way.

In my opinion, it is like a fashion statement for the user. I would never pay more for a phone just because of the case. Some folks do if it was a precious metal or had genuine precious gems.
