It is indeed very possible for new freelancers to become established sellers and gain sales, get recurring customers and make a living online. Like you said, it's obviously easier for an already established seller to get more sales compared to a new freelancer, but it's still very likely as long as you provide quality, treat your freelancing career as a business and as long as you're acting as a professional.
I would recommend any freelancer to read these FAQs. Especially new freelancers:

There is equal chance for everyone to become freelancer at any time, even now. It never was easy task to appear on international market and compete with hundreds of thousands of competitors, but for smart people who willing to learn quickly, who have clear vision and who want to work hard, there is always chance to become successful.

I think that anyone can start off as long as he has the commitment and potential to do it well. You cannot say that there are more experienced people out there and there is no room for you. This is true in every aspect, including the job market if you are a graduate fresh out of university and are trying to find a job. You need to start somewhere. Eventually older and experienced workers/freelancers will retire, and eventually you would start getting more buyers. The key is to be optimistic about it, offer a good quality service and you will then improve and earn more as you go along.
I am a buyer and not a seller so I can't give you feedback regarding from a sellers point of view. I am sure it is getting harder to get noticed as a freelancer but I always believe nothing is impossible.
What do I can tell you is that if you provide a great service, at a reasonable price and build up a good relationship with your customers you will be noticed. If I get all those things from a seller I am very loyal.
The difficulty of course would be getting those first few customers.
There is always a chance for anyone willing to join freelancing any day, but there is need to understand that it is one in which the person shouldn't expect free money to fall from the sky.
I agree that the number of freelancers is growing every day but competition is not getting stiff because opportunities are also growing. That is the law of progress, when demand grows, supplies tend to grow as well and vice versa. That means newcomers to the field of freelancing are welcome and they have the chance to improve if needed.
The sky is big enough for anyone to fly, no matter how saturated a career or field is there's always still space for new comers to have to work.The only snag is that one must be very good to compete with already established freelancers.There's always room for anyone but don't try to blend in but stands out that's the only way,you're sure of winning.
