Twenty percent of the brands in this year’s Brand Finance India 100 list are new entries. They are from e-commerce, pharma, auto, telecom, heavy engineering and banking sectors.

The new entrants in the top 100 list include Essar (11th rank with brand value of $2,747 m), United Spirits (22nd rank $1,337 m), Marico (36 rank $725 m), and Future Retail (43 rank $493 m).

“There is increasing competition for places in the Top 100. Emerging sectors like e-commerce, telecommunications, technology companies, banking services are particularly competitive. Staying in the premier league of brands will require a world beating product or service, differentiation and a strong vision and mission, including a strong ethical stance. Royal Enfield, Flipkart, Micromax and Sun Pharma are all potentially world beating powerhouse brands.”” Ajimon Francis, CEO, Brand Finance India said.

This bodes well for the success of Indian industry and demonstrates a growing competitiveness. Top-ranked companies will now have to pay ever closer attention to the value of their brands.
