BAV: The power club of brands

In an exclusive arrangement with Rediffusion Y&R we present findings from the latest BAV study. This is the first part of a three part series.

BAV: The power club of brands
According to BAV, Rediffusion Y&R’s brand measurement toolkit, a brand’s equity is derived from four pillars.
  • Differentiation
  • Relevance
  • Esteem
  • Knowledge
Differentiation and relevance together are indicators of brand strength while esteem and knowledge comprise brand stature. The strongest and most powerful brands are those that combine brand strength with brand stature.
 
The top 20 Power Brands, as per BAV 2017, and as rated by men, women, SEC ABC, 18-65 year olds are as follows:
 

Rank

Power Brands

1

Samsung

2

Airtel

3

State Bank of India

4

Lifebuoy Soap

5

Vodafone

6

Maaza

7

14

Tata Tea

15

Bank of India

16

Amul

17

Tata Salt

18

Sony

19

LG

20

Bata

 
 
While Samsung leads the pack, what is interesting is that 12 of the top 20 slots belonged to FMCG brands, followed by the technology sector represented by 3 brands, banks (2 brands) and telecom (2 brands). 2 Unilever brands feature in the list – with Lifebouy at 4th place and Fair & Lovely at 8th, while the Tata Group is also represented by 2 brands – Tata Tea at 14th and Tata Salt at 17th place. ITC’s Aashirvaad Atta also makes its way into the top 20 for the first time.
 
The biggest gainers of 2017 over BAV 2013 are Lifebuoy, Tata Tea, Mazaa, Tata Salt, Amul and Bata. LG and Fair and Lovely, while they have maintained their consistency by staying in the top 20 list amongst the 1400 odd brands measured, are unfortunately also the 2 brands that have lost ground when compared to 2013 – LG has gone down 10 places from 9th to 19th, while Fair & Lovely has just slipped by 1 rank from 7th in 2013 to 8th in 2017. And even the demons of demonetization couldn’t stop State Bank of India from jumping 18 places to become the 3rd most powerful brand in India!
