Is there a market for treatments sans screenplay?

in a word...NO!

while an established screenwriter might do up a treatment for a producer as work-for-hire, no one really buys original treatments... aside from a possible rare exception to the rule, they only buy completed screenplays...

in general, a treatment is only a longer version of the synopsis and has no value except for giving a detailed idea of what the script will be about, when agent or producer doesn't want to waste time reading the whole screenplay...
