As far I know, too costly to do it. It does not worth due to the price and the sell margin.

Well there is cost in marketing it to the companies that will sell it, making the discs, making the boxes, marketing it (in the sense of adverts)...etc...

You have to take into account that AVAST is one of the relatively smaller companies, which would make it harder for them to do this.

Avast is available in some countries as a boxed product. It's not done by avast themselves but rather by the local reseller/distributor. If you do a custom install of avast 5 there is an option for activation code, which is for a boxed product.
