Interbrand, a brand consulting company, listed the brand of the world to see which in 2019 was the most significant. The results were published in October.
They did this by looking at three key variables-brand popularity at the moment-in other words, how strong the brand’s image is all over the world; what value the brand brings to the business itself; and what ambitions the brand has for the future.
The firm then measured “the overall financial return to the investors of an enterprise, or its economic benefit,” as well as “the brand’s ability to create loyalty and thus sustained demand and income for the future.” Companies in tech stood out, such as Apple, Google, and Amazon, while Spotify and Harley Davidson came out with less market support.
Facebook dropped out of the top 10-14 and sportswear giant Nike came in 16th.
