FT ranking: The Americas’ Fastest-Growing Companies 2022

April 5, 2022

A medtech business leads the field of 500 companies, knocking a fintech lender off the top spot 

The third annual FT ranking of The Americas’ Fastest-Growing Companies captures the resilience of businesses as they adapted to the initial onslaught of the Covid pandemic, in 2020. Since that initial response, business leaders across the region have vowed to “build back better” — with increased digitalisation across several sectors and faster improvements in green energy generation and infrastructure. The technology sector enjoyed rapid growth as the coronavirus crisis deepened and more people began to work, shop and communicate through digital channels. Some companies have since seen their growth slow as lockdowns were lifted. As with last year’s ranking, technology — led by North American companies — accounts for nearly 28 per cent of the overall list, followed by financial services (7 per cent) and health (6.4 per cent).
