According to MediaPost , Amazon has beaten out Apple and Google, with the e-commerce giant’s brand value increasing by 42% year on year to a whopping $150 billion, according to Brand Finance.
With a brand strength index score of 92.3, up from 91.3 last year, Disney is the world’s strongest brand and one of the most interesting to watch in the coming years, according to the valuation and strategy consultancy. In light of its recent purchase of a majority stake in 21st Century Fox, Disney can further develop its brand to deliver for more consumers worldwide.
As for Amazon, it is no longer just an online retailer, but also a provider of cloud infrastructure and a producer of electronics. The company is moving beyond the digital space, as last year’s takeover of Whole Foods for $13.7 billion gave the brand a foothold in the realm of bricks and mortar.
“Jeff Bezos once said that ‘brands are more important online than they are in the physical world,’” says David Haigh, CEO of Brand Finance. “He has proved himself right by choosing the name Amazon, known as the largest, most powerful river in the world, as 23 years later the Amazon brand carries all before it as an unstoppable force.”
