“The Best Global Brands report examines what it takes for brands to succeed in today’s hyper-fragmented world. As people demand immediate, personalised and tailored experiences, business and brands need to move at the speed of life,” remarked Jez Frampton, Global Chief Executive Officer, Interbrand. “Many of the brands in this year’s Top 100 are so intuitively aligned with people’s priorities that they are able to seamlessly integrate into their everyday lives,” he added.

According to Ashish Mishra, Managing Director, Interbrand India, “The new speed of life is creating a churn in which only the world changing brands will thrive. From Apple to Lego and from Facebook to PayPal, the risers and new entrants reflect the fundamentals of world changing brands – anticipation, co-evolution, co-creation and flexibility. Brands that will succeed are the ones that can foresee the needs of the consumers and address them wherever, whenever they are, using the power of technology.”

Methodology

Interbrand’s 16th annual ranking identifies the 100 most valuable global brands by analysing the many ways a brand benefits an organisation – from delivering on customer expectations to driving economic value. Interbrand’s Best Global Brands methodology was the first brand valuation method to become ISO certified.

The ranking is based on a combination of attributes that contribute to a brand’s cumulative value:

  • The financial performance of the branded products and services
  • The role the brand plays in influencing customer choice
  • The strength the brand has to command a premium price or secure earnings for the company
