A 16% increase in overall brand value from the chart demonstrates the growing contribution a company’s brand has to driving its economic success. While financial markets have shown significant changes in recent years, the value of the world’s strongest brands has steadily increased, driving customer choice, loyalty and margins.

Key learnings

The fastest rising brands in 2022 (in terms of percentage change in brand value, year over year) significantly outperformed the fastest falling brands in three brand strength factors – Direction, Agility and Participation.

  • Direction: These brands set a clear direction, making sure the entire organization knows where it is going and works towards the same ambition.
  • Agility – Once this is done, they move fast, bringing new products and services to market and, when needed, pivoting to address changing customer needs.
  • Engagement – ​​Ultimately taking people on a journey with them and making them part of the movement to create an engaging brand world.

chris caposelaexecutive vice president and chief marketing officer at Microsoft said: “At Microsoft, we believe that technology can help empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. As we continue to help clients digitally transform and leverage our technology to do more with less, we’re excited to grow our audience beyond brand limitations as a truly valuable part of their lives.”

Gonzalo Brujó, Global CEO of Interbrand said: “As we go through this period of economic uncertainty, the most successful brands will continue to build ever stronger connections with consumers. It is no longer enough to have a static brand and commercial offering. Successful brands know how to leverage new technology to create better experiences for consumers and become a truly integrated part of their lives.

“These top 10 brands defy the rules. They build exceptionally strong relationships with their customers, enabling them to extend their brand value beyond traditional products, sectors, or silos. They excel in leadership, empowerment, and change, and with that comes value.”
