Apple is once again the most valuable brand on Earth in 2022

The iPhone maker, Apple Inc., has once again topped the list of the world's 10 most valuable brands following a 35% increase to $355.1 billion, according to Brand Finance’s latest report. Accordingly, Apple has retained its #1 spot from last year, having accrued the greatest Brand Finance valuation ever, at US$355.1 billion. This figure is based on its market value, (which hit $3 trillion at one point in recent history) not to mention its household-name status, ability to retain customer loyalty and making sure to emphasise its services as much as hardware such as the latest M1 MacBook Pros and iPhones 13.

This is the highest brand value ever recorded in the history of Brand Finance Global 500 ranking.

Big-tech companies

The tech sector is again the most valuable in the survey, with a cumulative brand value of close to $1.3-trillion.

Furthermore, the second position is secured by Amazon with a brand value of $350.3 billion, followed by Google with $263.4 billion and Microsoft with $184.2 billion. While Walmart is in the fifth rank with a $111.9 billion brand value, which was in the sixth position in 2021.

South Korea-based Samsung Group’s brand value stands at US$107.3 billion in 2022, a 5% increase from last year, which has allowed it to defend its long-time position as the most valuable brand in Asia-Pacific, although it fell down to 6th in the global ranking, overtaken by Walmart.

Meanwhile, Facebook and ICBC remained in seventh and eighth rank respectively. The last 10th place is captured by Verizon with a $69.6 billion brand value.

On that note, Brand Finance has included 49 additional big-tech companies (with a combined value exceeding $1 trillion) in its new list.

Google saw a similar brand value growth of 38% to US$263.4 billion. The brand relies on advertising for the vast majority of its revenue, and was hurt at the start of the pandemic as advertising spend dropped due to uncertainty. However, as the world adjusted to the new normal, and with people spending more and more time online, advertising budgets opened back up and Google’s business rebounded, resulting in a healthy uplift in brand value.
