There is a lot of uncertainty in emerging industries as demand for the product, the growth potential and market conditions of the industry are unknown and there is a limited track record. Companies in an emerging industry tend to have little or no positive income while trying to raise enough money for research and development to progress growth. Companies in these industries are highly speculative as both the companies and the industry itself have yet to establish themselves in the larger market.
