For me the motivation is not even the market value it brings (Ok maybe a little if there is one) but, the benefits I received when preparing for any kind of certification. It's one thing that you actually used the stuff and it's another when you go back to the same concept on a more structured perspective. It so easy to take for granted little things, sometime this little nugget may turn to be really useful in the future. And that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
