NIX Solutions: Apple Becomes the First Brand Valued at Over $1 Trillion

Capitalization is not the only way to quantify a company’s success in the market; there is also a rating of the most valuable brands in the world, and for the third year in a row, it is headed by Apple.

Leading Brands and Their Values

The Alphabet corporation, with its Google brand, holds second place with $753 billion, while Microsoft takes third place with $713 billion. The recent increase in Apple’s capitalization to a record $3.18 trillion allowed the company to win back in the confrontation with Nvidia, which dropped slightly to $2.97 trillion and returned to third place, notes NIX Solutions. The leader by this criterion remains Microsoft with a capitalization of $2.97 trillion.

In Nvidia’s case, its brand value nearly tripled this year to $201.8 billion, landing it sixth place on Kantar’s rankings for the first time and increasing that figure by 178%, stronger than any other member of the top 10 most valuable brands. Now Nvidia is second only to Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon ($576.6 billion), and McDonald’s ($221.9 billion) in brand value.

The Kantar BrandZ rating is based on a survey of 4.3 million respondents, with a sample consisting of about 21 thousand brands in 532 categories. This year’s top three are all tech companies headquartered in the United States.
