WPP comment “The combined value of the Top100 has grown by 77% since 2006.They are now worth $2.6 trillion.” On the BrandZ sector classifications both Technology and Telecoms have sort of flatlined in value terms with 1% losses and gins resprectively. Retail which includes Amazon and eBay has risen by 17% and is the fifth highest riser Beer leads the way at 36 % followed interestingly by Global Banks ( 23%).

We’ve got together our top 20 Tech list which includes BrandZ’s Technology Telecom Providers and the Online only businesses from their Retail categories ie Amazon & eBay.

So how will it change this year we think Google could well be vying for the top spot and Samsung will again surge forward. Amazon’s advance may well continue but at a slower rate but they could just make the top 5 – we shall see!

We’ll leave you with their Top 100 video which we thought was somewhat addictively good & catchy!
