Definition (3):

“An emerging industry is a group of companies in a line of business formed around a new product or idea that is in the early stages of development.” This industry generally includes only a few companies and is sometimes centered on new technology. These industries very quickly come into existence when one technology starts to eclipse and replace old technology. 

Stocks of organizations in emerging industries are sometimes volatile and can face wide price fluctuations. It is difficult to value such organizations, specifically, if they possess little revenue or have not made a profit yet.
