Why is it so hard to find BR40 LED bulbs in 120 watt equivalent ratings?

My house is full of can lights and in the old days you could get 120 watt incandescent flood lights no problem. Now the brightest I can find is 65W thanks to the governments needless mandates. I found just one LED that is rated at 120 watts equivalent in a BR40, made by Kobi Electric, a company I never heard of. Are they any good? Why doesn't any of the majors like GE, Sylvania, Phillips, make them?

Halco lighting makes one in three different temperatures. Uses 18 watts of power. A little pricey.

Phillips also offers one ..... LED Reflector - Flood 19.5W (120W) Medium base (E26) Bright White Dimmable

That's a PAR38, I need BR40. Went ahead and ordered one Kobi bulb just to check it out.
