The Asia-Pacific region is home to approximately half the world’s population. Despite the challenges, and against this fragmented backdrop, some of this year’s most valuable Asian retail are those that actively expanded beyond their home base, either regionally or internationally. India based brand Tanishq has secured a spot in the list of the best valued brands released by Interbrand. The Tanishq retail chain currently operates through166 exclusive boutiques in 90 cities, making it India’s one of the largest jewellery retail store chains.
Leading Japanese retail brands such as Uniqlo and FamilyMart are looking beyond their domestic customer base to younger, dynamic markets in China and Southeast Asia to fuel future growth. Meanwhile, brands such as Chinese jeweler Chow Tai Fook are finding that expansion into third- and fourth-tier domestic cities offers new sources of revenue. SM, the leading retail brand in the Philippines, also sees enormous potential for expanding its footprint.
