ERC Chart: Market Cap vs Brand Value
Tech companies’ success is particularly evident, with the flagship brands shown here averaging a 33% increase in their market capitalisations and a 16% increase in their brand values. The lowest performance on both fronts was shown by more traditional telecommunications brands, who together averaged a 9% decrease in their market capitalisations and a 1.5% decrease in their brand value. This is due in part to the rise of free-to-use applications such as Skype and Whatsapp, companies owned by Skype and Facebook respectively. Luxury car manufacturers such as Mercedes Benz and BMW have enjoyed increased market values in the past year, although some of this may be related to the increase in availability of car finance packages across the US and Europe, which incentivise consumers both to opt for higher value models and to renew them more often.
