One answer would be pressure, which affects blast, reloading tolerances, and other things; another would be that some people prefer larger platforms due to hand size and shape, and similar recoil in a gun that does not fit as well may result in higher perceived recoil; another is that boring more metal out of a 9mm platform means some compact .40 designs push metallurgical limits closer than people may like.

Other people will come up with other reasons, I am sure.
