Most people think that the top brands in the world are things like retailers, and fashion titles, cars, and fast foods, but believe it or not these only scratched the surface. The top 5 brands we’ve found will shock you because it will finally prove that it is now the digital age, and that technology is everything! Without Further Ado, here’s the list. We’ll count down from 5 to 1 (1 ranking the highest of course).
Coca-Cola is still one of the most popular soft drinks in the world. They serve on an average of over 60 billion drinks per day (by drinks we mean serving sized drinks), and their other brands aside from their main soft drink still accounted for 2 billion of those. The brand’s net worth is over $66.3 billion, and the company makes about half of that salary in a year. The average company salary is approximately 75 thousand dollars, and they have risen to be above 23% in the last 5 years in the stock price exchange market. They are also the world’s most known about soft drink and even beat Pepsi Co.
Bill Gates got something right – business. Microsoft ranks four, and they are even worth almost a third more than the Coca Cola brand. As one of the leading companies in the computer industry, no duh, right? But by annual sales, and overall value they only rank #4 on the list though. Stay tuned for more info on why!
Amazon is now the world’s leading web shopping platform, and that being said, they’ve won out over sites that used to be dominant like eBay, and even other custom carts with their vast network. Their net worth is valued at over $100 billion, and they make a total revenue of almost double that each year. They’ve risen more than 480 percent (and still rising) on the stock exchange.
This result is not that surprising to some, but what people don’t realize is that they’re the second most valuable company in the entire planet. They have reached the most users in the world with their byproducts, YouTube, Android, DoubleClick and more. Their stock has only risen 128.6 percent, the company is worth $155 billion (actually less than Microsoft), but in a much shorter time frame. They win in the annual revenue at over 110 billion dollars in sales though.
And The Victor Championship Ring Goes To: APPLE #1
There is no surprise that Apple is the leading tech giant today, but you may be surprised that even though it took years to accomplish over Microsoft, Apple is the largest selling, and the highest worth brand with their extremely shiny gadgets, computers, and innovative ideas at sometimes increasingly high prices. Despite the price, they remain the top quality brand on the market, and even their phones alone lead the industry in cell phone sales, much to Android power users’ surprise. They make an average of above 229 billion dollars per year, and the average salary that they pay is $121 thousand dollars per year. They’ve grown over 200 percent in the US Stock exchange, and have a net worth value over 214 billion dollars.
