A $100-billion market is one that’s likely to become more lucrative in the future, but it’s still quite nascent.
The first 100 years of the 20th century saw the growth of the finance industry, with the advent of credit cards and banks.
That industry peaked at about $20 billion in the mid-1970s, when the first big companies like American Express, IBM and Citigroup were in their early days.
It’s a lot of money, but at the same time, it’s not as lucrative as it once was, when most companies were just getting started.
In contrast, the new wave of companies are poised for a bigger payday in the coming years.
Here are some of the more notable names on the list.
