The annual Interbrand Best Global Brands report was based on an analysis of major brands that derive at least 30% of their revenue from outside their home region.
The researchers looked at a number of factors to determine 2016 brand value, including financials, the role of the brand name in purchase decisions, and brand strength. You can see the full methodology here.
