I know horizontal band saws exist, why haven’t I ever seen one? And what are they used for?

The main reasons you probably haven’t seen one are cost, footprint, and purpose.  They are more expensive with more moving parts.  Due to the orientation they take up more shop space. And they aren’t good for making long curved cuts.  I typically see them in large shops that run a lot of piping.  They were used to cut pipes to length as they provided good straight 90 degree cuts.
