Retail and telecom brands have outperformed most other categories and seen their brand value increase in the 2020 BrandZ™ Top 75 Most Valuable Indian Brands ranking.

At a time of near-unprecedented economic challenges, the total value of the BrandZ™ India Top 75 fell by 6 percent in 2020, resulting in a total brand value of $216 billion.

Despite the overall decline, 26 brands increased in value and five were new entrants. India’s top brands also performed well against other countries where declines in total brand value were much greater.

And, in especially difficult times, BrandZ provides the proof that valuable brands deliver superior shareholder returns: the stock portfolio of the BrandZ India Top 75 has recovered more of its pre-pandemic value, at a faster rate, than India’s SENSEX.

For the seventh year, HDFC Bank remained the top-ranked brand in India with a total brand value of more than $20.2 billion. LIC reached the no.2 spot, with Tata Consulting Services at no.3.

With a 102 percent year-on-year increase in value, the fast-expanding brand Reliance Retail led this year’s crop of Top Risers.
