Apple Journey to Most Valuable Brand Globally
As per the latest Brand Finance Report of 2021, Apple has secured the first position among the most valuable brands globally. Apple saw a growth of 87% to achieve this rank. Currently, it stands strong with a total brand value of $263.4 billion.
The company defeated Amazon and Google to reach the top. As per the brand finance ranking report, Apple ranked first last time in 2016. Diversification among the business strategies of the company is the main reason behind this success.
Tim Cook brought few changes in the working of Apple. Earlier the company was mainly focused on iPhone based profit. Now, other digital services like App Store, iCloud, Apple Podcasts, Apple Music, Apple TV, and Apple Arcade helped Apple to grow more. App Store has earned a revenue of $64 billion in 2020.
Reinvention and transformation with time set Apple apart from other competitors. These innovative ideas made Apple the first US company to achieve a market cap of $2 trillion.
David Haigh, CEO of Brand Finance, commented: “Steve Jobs’ legacy continues to flow through Apple, with innovation built into the brand’s DNA. As Apple reclaims the title of the world’s most valuable brand from Amazon five years since it last held the top spot, we are witnessing it Think Different once again. From Mac to iPod, to iPhone, to iPad, to Apple Watch, to subscription services, to infinity and beyond.”
