Recently, Interbrand released its 2016 Best Global Brands report identifying the world’s 100 most valuable brands. The Top 100 brands have a combined total value of $1,796,384 million, an increase of 4.8 per cent from 2015.
A division of Omnicom and parent of Brandchannel, Interbrand Best Global Brands methodology is the first of its kind to be ISO certified and uses three key aspects that contribute to a brand’s value:
– the financial performance of the branded products or service
– the role the brand plays in influencing consumer choice
– the strength the brand has to command a premium price, or secure earnings for the company
To qualify, brands must operate on at least three major continents and have a roadmap in emerging markets. Thirty per cent of revenues must be derived outside the home country, with no more than 50 per cent of revenues from any one continent.
