Adbrands Weekly Update 28th September 2017: Interbrand published the 2017 edition of its annual Best Global Brands ranking. Appleand Google retained the top two places and other digital disrupters continued their ascent up the charts at the expense of old-school brands. At valuations of $181bn and $142bn respectively, a gap of more than $60bn separates Apple and Google from any other brands. Coca-Cola remains among the top five, but was pushed out of the #3 slot by Microsoft and is also challenged at #5 by Amazon, whose valuation increased by 29% year-on-year. That jump was beaten only by Facebook, whose 48% surge pushed it into the Top Ten between Samsung and Toyota on one side, and Mercedes-Benz and IBM on the other. The highest new arrival among the 100 was Netflix at #78, with Salesforce and Ferrari entering among the 80s. They took the place of outgoing brands MTVXerox and Ralph Lauren.

Adbrands Weekly Update 6th October 2016: Apple retained its lead as the world's Best Global Brand in Interbrand's latest ranking, though second-placed Google gained slightly on its rival. Coca-Cola and Microsoft held firm in 3rd and 4th place respectively. The most noticeable change this year was a strong showing for automobile manufacturers. All except Volkswagen (for obvious reasons) enjoyed an increase in their valuation, and Tesla crept into the ranking for the first time at #100. Christian Dior also made its debut in the table, giving LVMH three brands among the top 100. No surprise for the two biggest risers: Facebook, with a valuation up 48% at #15, and Amazon up by a third at #8. Not far behind in growth came old-school favourite LEGO, up by 25% while NissanAdobe and Starbucks also enjoyed lifts of 20% or more. See the full report here.

Not surprisingly, Google and especially Apple widened their leads at the top of the table. Apple's valuation rose by 43% to over $170bn, compared to a 12% increase for second-placed Google to $120bn. A huge gulf now separates those twin tech giants from Coca-Cola in third place at $78bn. There were big valuation increases also for Facebook (up 54%), Amazon (up 29%), Hermes (22%) and Nissan (19%). Highest new entry was LEGO at #82. Other new arrivals among the Top 100 were PayPal, Mini, Moet & Chandon and Lenovo, which together took the bottom four places. See full report here.
