The most valuable brand now is billionaire Jeff Bezos’ online retailer Amazon, surpassing Apple from the previous year. Despite its brand value declining 15% this year from $350.3 billion to $299.3 billion, Amazon nevertheless managed to claim the top spot.
Despite the top spot, Amazon’s brand value has decreased by over $50 billion this year, its rating dropped from AAA+ to AAA, according to Brand Finance’s Global 500 2023 list. Delivery times have increased while customer service quality at Amazon has decreased. Moreover, customers are now less likely to tell others about Amazon.
As the second-most valuable brand in the world, Apple has dropped to second place from first (brand value down 16% to $297.5 billion from $355.1 billion). Due to disruptions in the supply chain and a tight labour market, this year’s decline in brand value is directly related to a decrease in projected revenue.
