Define growth? Do you mean share price? Market cap? Earnings?

Standard and Poors (and others) break the market down into sectors. You can find data on the various sectors in considerable detail.

I suspect you will find the growth is highest in computers, electronics, and communications technologies.

But the data always get skewed by the new business growing from a very small base. Their growth numbers can be huge.

This data is only a starting point for your research. You really want to know which can continue that growth rate for the next say decade. That takes more of a crystal ball.
