Dec 21, 2017, New York — World Brand Lab released “the World’s 500 Most Influential Brands” (14th edition) list. Google, runner-up of last year’s list beat Apple and regained the throne. Since the release of AI Strategy, Google continued to spark with high popularity in technology sector. Apple relegated to second place and Amazon continued to maintain its third place with its new retail model success. 233 US brands were in the list, indicating US’s first place with strong power of brands. China had only 37 selected brands, which did not match the status of its second largest economy in the world. Some of the best-performing brands are State Grid, Tencent, Haier, Huawei, CEFC China Energy, Tsingtao Brewery and Wuliangye.
连续十四年发布的《世界品牌500强》(The World's 500 Most Influential Brands)，其评判依据是品牌的世界影响力。所谓品牌影响力(Brand Influence)，是指品牌开拓市场、占领市场并获得利润的能力。按照品牌影响力的三项关键指标，即市场占有率(Market Share)、品牌忠诚度(Brand Loyalty)和全球领导力(Global Leadership)，世界品牌实验室对全球2万个知名品牌进行了评分，最终推出了世界最具影响力的500个品牌。
Based on brand’s global influence, the ranking list of the " the World’s 500 Most Influential Brands " has been released for 14 consecutive years. Brand Influence refers to ability of brand to open up the market, capture the market and earn profit. According to three key indicators of brand influence, namely Market Share, Brand Loyalty and Global Leadership, World Brand Lab scored more than 20,000 famous brands around the world and eventually launched the world's most influential 500 brands.
The the World’s 500 Most Influential Brands list includes brands from 28 countries. From the nation distribution of the brands, the United States occupies 233 out of the top 500, keeping its brand superpower. The traditional European powers France and UK have 40 and 39 brands, respectively, ranking second and third places. Japan, China, Germany, Switzerland and Italy are the second camps for brand powerhouses with 38, 37, 26, 21 and 14 selected brands respectively. Thus, despite the economic downturn in Europe, the super-brands in Europe and the United States seem to be firm. Although 37 brands are selected in China, Chinese brands are clearly still in the "third world" as it owns 1.3 billion populations and is the second largest economy in the world.
This year, the “the World’s 500 Most Influential Brands“ covers 56 industries in total. Among them, the automotive and parts industry with a total of 38 brands listed, ranking rises to the first; food and beverage industry with 35 brands ranks second; after last year's heavy hit, media industry still ranks third this year, with 33 brands selected. Energy (25) and Internet (23) industry both have a slightly larger proportion. The global Internet market has kept its rapid growth in the past year. By the end of 2016, the number of Internet users in the world reached 3.4 billion. China is still the largest Internet user market in the world.
今年新上榜的品牌总计有38个，这些品牌分散于各个行业。其中，有24个品牌来自美国，其余来自于中国(3个)、瑞士(3个)、日本(2个)等。美国作为世界品牌强国，各个行业都有品牌佼佼者，新上榜的戴尔公司(Dell)是最大 PC 制造商之一，自2013年转型后，跨出了转折性的一步。韩国起亚(Kia Motors)、日本东京海上控股(Tokio Marine)也纷纷进入榜单；而中国新上榜的中国南方电网(China Southern Power Grid)、中国中车(CRRC)和五粮液(Wuliangye)也一直闻名中外。
A total of 38 brands are newly listed this year, and these brands are scattered in various industries. Among them, there are 24 brands from the United States, the rest from China (3), Switzerland (3), Japan (2) and so on. As a powerful country in brands, the United States has leaders in all industries. The newly listed brand Dell, one of the largest PC manufacturers, has taken a turnaround since the transition in 2013. Kia Motors from South Korea and Tokio Marine from Japan are also included in the list. The newly listed China Southern Power Grid, CRRC and Wuliangye from China have all been well-known worldwide.
Under the influence of THAAD, the retailer Lotte's business in China was almost paralyzed, making it the biggest loser this year. Mitsubishi got bad reputation as a result of the scandal and the rank dropped 104. Nissan, the model sample in Japanese manufacturing industry, was blasted for its 38-year low quality check, resulting in factory shutdown, car’s recall, sales decline, and slumped brand value. Brands that are suffered from scandal and declining ranking also include Uber. the Internet sharing economy is booming, but Uber’s scandal made its market share decline in recent years, validating its deterioration in brand image. It is also worth mentioning that the rapid development of emerging industries and the decline of the traditional time-honored industry has a sharp contrast. The time-honored cell phone manufacturing industry continued to decline, and Ericsson, the cell phone giant once, has dropped out of the top 500 list.
2017年度《世界品牌500强》的平均年龄达到100.19岁，相比去年的93.71有所上升。其中100岁及以上的“老字号”达216个，美国以94个占比达到4成。英国的两所知名学府牛津、剑桥分别列为最古老品牌的前两名。学校的历史积淀是知识的沉淀感的最佳表象。除去拥有悠久历史的著名大学之外，中国的茅台(Moutai)是企业界拥有最长历史的品牌。此外，法国两家老牌公司圣戈班(Saint Gobain)和人头马(Rémy Martin)也分别拥有352年和293年历史，在古老品牌中名列前茅。中国入选的37个品牌中只有茅台、青岛啤酒、五粮液、中国银行超越百龄。依行业来看，食品与饮料类品牌最古老，100岁以上的入选品牌占到了27个。而互联网品牌最年轻，如连我(LINE)、WhatsApp、Instagram等品牌从建立至今不到 10 年的时间，却都拥有几亿用户，并成为世界级品牌。
The average age of brands on the list in 2017 reaches 100.19 years old, up from 93.71 last year. Of these, 216 were time-honored brands which have the age of 100 and over. The United States accounts for 40% with 94 brands. Two well-known British universities Oxford and Cambridge, respectively, are listed as the top two oldest brands. The historical accumulation of the school is the best representation of the weight of knowledge. Apart from the famous universities with a long history, China's Moutai is the longest-running brand in the business world. In addition, Saint Gobain and Rémy Martin, two time-honored French companies, were 352 and 293 years old respectively, and top among the oldest brands. Among the 37 brands selected from China, only Moutai , Tsingtao , Wuliangye and Bank of China reaches the age of 100 and over. By industry, brands in food and beverage industry are the oldest, with 27 selected brands over the age of 100. The brands in Internet industry are the youngest and brands, such as LINE, WhatsApp and Instagram, already earn hundreds of millions of users and become world-class brands although they are all less than 10 years old.
针对中国品牌入选数量少的问题，美国加州大学伯克利分校Haas商学院米格尔·博阿斯教授(Miguel Villas-Boas)认为，“过去，中国品牌的命名、定价和形象设计,都不够国际化。在未来，随着移动网络和社交媒体的全球普及，能使中国品牌很容易接触到各国最终用户,并迅速缩小与世界品牌的差距”。哈佛大学商学院约翰·戴腾(John Deighton)教授认为，“中国品牌在欧美一线市场目前没有站稳脚跟,但是在非洲、南美、南亚等二线市场，中国品牌策略是成功的。譬如在非洲，中国品牌的手机销量超过了苹果和三星。”
According to Miguel Villas-Boas, professor at the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, in view of the small number of selected Chinese brands: “In the past, the naming, pricing and image design of Chinese brands were not sufficiently internationalized. In the future, with the global popularization of mobile networks and social media, Chinese brands will have easy access to end-users in all countries and rapidly narrow the gap with world brands. " According to Professor John Deighton of Harvard Business School, "Chinese brands are not well established in the US and Europe first-tier markets, but their brand strategies have been successful in second-tier markets such as Africa, South America and South Asia. For example, in Africa, the sale volume of Chinese brands phones exceeds those of Apple and Samsung. "
世界品牌实验室主席、诺贝尔经济学奖得主罗伯特·蒙代尔(Robert Mundell)教授分析说，“品牌价值的魅力，往往能通过资本市场体现。譬如，苹果、谷歌、亚马逊的市值分别为8900亿美元、7500亿美元和5600亿美元。如此高的市值中，品牌价值至少占有60%。中国政府应该通过各种途径，鼓励企业实施品牌策略。譬如，中国本土市场的超级品牌(Super Brand)大约5000个,很多品牌企业并没有公开上市融资，但可以鼓励品牌证券化，用来产生现金流。品牌证券化在欧美流行多年，是一种重要的金融工具”。
Robert Mundell, chairman of World Brand Lab and Nobel laureate in Economics, said, “the charisma of brand value can often be reflected in the capital markets. For example, the market capitalization of Apple, Google and Amazon is 8900 billion, 750 billion and 560 billion US dollars respectively. The brand value would at least account for 60% of such high market capitalizations. Chinese government should adopt various channels to encourage enterprises to implement brand strategy. For example, there are around 5000 Super Brands in the Chinese domestic market and many of them are not publicly listed for funding. However, they can be encouraged for brand securitization to generate cash flow. Brand securitization has been prevalent in Europe and the United States for many years as an important financial tool.
