Short Bytes: Using the data from Brand Finance, HowMuch.net has created a map that shows the biggest and most valuable brands in selected countries. The top three brands in the map are Google, Samsung, and ICBC. The countries on the map have been colored and resized according to the brand value.Earlier this year in February, the Brand Finance announced that Google is the world’s most valuable brand. Google, which was at the second position last year, managed to beat the long-time leader Apple. Apart from Google’s its own growth, this shuffle was also inspired by Apple’s own drop.
Based on that data, HowMuch.net has created an informative map that shows the biggest and most valuable brand in your country. It clearly shows that Google has taken the top spot from Apple with a 24% increase in value.
The map reflects the global economic dominance of the U.S. The next-biggest national brand is Samsung, the South Korean giant. Its value is a little less than two-thirds of the size of Google. The third place is occupied by the Chinese bank ICBC.
Let’s take a look at the map:
