Interbrand’s 17th annual report analyzes how brands help grow businesses—from delivering on customer expectations to driving economic value. The ranking is based on three key components 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.
