100 Fastest-Growing Companies

Fortune's 2019 ranking of the world's top three-year performers in revenues, profits, and stock returns provides a snapshot of the trends driving the global economy. For the second year in a row, the technology sector placed the most companies on the list, matching last year’s total of 32. The once-dominant energy industry, meanwhile, continues to lag. However, there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to warp-speed growth, and not every fast grower is a product of the Internet era. The average age of the companies on this year’s list is 38 years old. But they have all been market winners, with an average annual return of 29% over the past three years vs. 14% for the S&P 500.
