Campaign Asia-Pacific reveals Asia’s Top 1000 Brands ranking


Samsung leads the region for a 9th straight year that saw significant moves for Sony, Instagram, Netflix, Huawei and Hisense.

SINGAPORE and HONG KONG, July 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Campaign Asia-Pacific has released the results of its eagerly-anticipated 17th annual Asia’s Top 1000 Brands survey in partnership with Nielsen. This year’s ranking saw Samsung’s continued dominance in top spot, but it also had some twists. Perennial favourite Sony slipped from the ranking’s Top 5 for the first time ever. Some Chinese brands that had been steady climbers like Huawei and Xiaomi experienced setbacks this year, while others, like Hisense, Midea and Didi Chuxing rose the ranks.
