The Best Global Brands report examines what it takes for brands to succeed in today’s hyper-fragmented world. As people demand immediate, personalized and tailored experiences, business and brands need to move at the speed of life,” says Jez Frampton, Interbrand’s Global Chief Executive Officer. “Many of the brands in this year’s Top 100 are so intuitively aligned with people’s priorities that they are able to seamlessly integrate into their everyday lives.” 

“The new speed of life is creating a churn in which only the world changing brands will thrive. From Apple to Lego and from Facebook to PayPal, the risers and new entrants reflect the fundamentals of world changing brands – anticipation, co-evolution, co creation and flexibility. Brands that will succeed are the ones that can foresee the needs of the consumers and address them wherever, whenever they are, using the power of technology.”, added Ashish Mishra, Managing Director, Interbrand India.
