The PS5 is still not readily available around the world due to the ongoing shortage of semiconductors, resulting in fewer consoles being manufactured and shipped to retailers. The Xbox Series X / S also has similar problems.
That said, Sony recently announced that the PS5 had shipped 13.4 million units worldwide, so the console has been a huge hit so far despite being hard to come by.
