The World’s Top 3 Most Valuable Brands In 2023
A study compiled the top 500 most valuable brands in 2023 worldwide, of which 10 were American. As for the top 10 valuable brands, seven are from the U.S., two are from China, and one is from South Korea.
TradingPedia looked at the biggest companies in leading markets, including the U.S., China, Germany, and the U.K. It came up with a list of the Top 500 most valuable brands. For this, the largest brands from a total of 45 countries were identified and assessed for value.
The publication relies on brand finance for measurement purposes. Brand Finance determines brand value using the “Royalty Relief” method. In essence, researchers determine the value a company “would be willing to pay to license its brand as if it did not own it.”
