This Map Shows the Most Valuable Brand for Each Country
The world’s most valuable brand is owned by a company that you likely interact with every day. In fact, you may have even gotten to this web page using it.
That brand is Google – and it dominates the internet with a 64% market share in search, while generating 41% of all digital advertising revenue globally.
According to Brand Finance’s most recent 2017 list, Google’s “brand value” has recently increased to $109.5 billion, which is just enough to supplant Apple’s $107.1 billion brand from the top of the list.
What is “brand value”? According to Brand Finance, it’s an internationally recognized term that represents “a marketing-related intangible asset including, but not limited to, names, terms, signs, symbols, logos and designs, or a combination of these, intended to identify goods, services or entities, or a combination of these, creating distinctive images and associations in the minds of stakeholders, thereby generating economic benefits/value”.
The Most Valuable Brand in Each Country
Today’s infographic comes from HowMuch.net, a cost information site, and it breaks down Brand Finance’s list of the top 500 brands in a different way. It shows the most valuable brand for each country, and has each country sized accordingly to the dollar value of that company’s brand.
It’s interesting to note the drop off in value from country to country.
Google is the world’s most valuable brand at $109.5 billion – and it is followed closely by other U.S. brands like Apple ($107.1B) or Amazon ($106.4B). However, there are only two non-U.S. brands in the top 10, which are South Korean conglomerate Samsung ($66.2B) and Chinese bank ICBC ($47.8B).
Two automakers also rank pretty high. Japan’s Toyota and Germany’s BMW both have significant valuations at $46.3 billion and $37.1 billion.
After that, it’s a pretty steep fall in value for most countries. The top brands in countries like Canada, Italy, Switzerland, Australia, Russia, India, and Spain don’t crack $20 billion in value. On the entire South American continent, the most valuable brand is Brazil’s Itaú, a bank with a brand worth only $6.9 billion.
By our count, a whopping 76 of the top 100 brands were based in either the United States, China, or Japan.
Editor’s note: We added in a definition of “Brand Value” into the article, to make clear that it is different from any other type of value (such as market capitalization).

Brand equity can be a challenging thing to build.
Even with access to deep pockets and an innovative product, it can take decades of grit to scrape your way into the mainstream consciousness of consumers.
On the path to becoming established as a globally significant brand, companies must fight through fierce competition, publicity scandals, changing regulations, and rapidly-evolving consumer tastes – all to take a bite from the same piece of pie.
Cream of the Crop
Today’s visualization comes to us from HowMuch.net, and it showcases the 100 most valuable brands in the world, according to Forbes.
Here are the powerful brands that sit at the very top of the list:
|Rank||Brand||Brand Value ($B)||1-Yr Value Change||Industry|
It should be noted that the list is ordered by brand value, a measure that tries to calculate each brand’s ultimate contribution in financial terms to the parent company. You can see that full methodology here.
Finally, it’s also worth mentioning that brands with only a token representation in the United States have been excluded from the rankings. This means companies like Alibaba or Vodafone are not represented in this particular visualization.
Tech Rules Again in 2019
For another straight year, technology dominates the list of the 100 most valuable brands in 2019 – this time, with six of the top seven entries.
Most of these brands saw double-digit growth in value from the previous year, including Apple (12%), Google (27%), Amazon (37%), Microsoft (20%), and Samsung (11%). The one notable exception here is Facebook, which experienced a 6% drop in value attributed to various struggles around the company’s reputation.
Here’s a look at how industries break down more generally on the list:
|Industry||# of Brands||Brand Value ($B)|
As you can see, technology brands make up 20% of the list in terms of the number of entries – and a whopping 43% of the list’s cumulative valuation.
In total, technologies brands combined for $957.6 billion in value. Even when including Facebook’s recent drop, this is an impressive 9.7% increase on last year’s numbers.
Will the double-digit increases for the world’s largest tech giants continue into 2020, or are brands such as Amazon and Google going to start seeing the same type of pushback that Facebook has grappled with among consumers and regulators?
