Interbrand's ‘Best Indian Brands’ 2015: Tata, Reliance, Airtel retain top three slots
Interbrand India has released its 2015 ‘Best Indian Brands Report’, the third edition of the report for Indian brands.
 
Tata retained its top spot in the study, seeing a growth of 12 per cent in brand value. Interbrand's MD Ashish Mishra attributed Tata's strong showing to Tata Consultancy Services. 
 
Tata was followed by Reliance and Airtel, as the top three ranks remained unchanged from last year. LIC and State Bank of India followed at fourth and fifth place, trading places from the 2014 list.
 
The top risers this year are HCL (27 per cent), Kotak (24 per cent), Tanishq (20 per cent), Infosys (19 per cent) and Asian Paints (also 19 per cent). 
 
The study retained the methodology involving ‘financial analysis, role of brand index, and brand strength scores’ from 2014, but the list of brands has been reduced to 30, from 40 last year.
 
In a statement, Jez Frampton, global CEO, Interbrand, said, “As one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, India presents a host of opportunities and unique challenges to its brand leader. Some of this year’s 30 best Indian brands are ‘poised to rise’ because they have learned to move at the speed of life. Not only are they keeping pace with a rapidly developing country, but they are also keeping pace with the constantly changing wants/needs of consumers throughout India. These brands are likely to influence other brands entering the Indian market for perhaps the first time. They are forging a path which many brands are sure to follow in the months and years ahead.” 
 
Mishra said, "The ‘Best Indian Brands’ report is our way of celebrating the most valuable Indian brands every year. In today’s converged marketplaces, a global brand outlook is not a matter of aspiration but an imperative. Interbrand India’s larger purpose in the market is to identify the best Indian brands and help them in their journey towards becoming best global brands.”
 
The new entrant is Zee Entertainment Enterprises, making its way to the list at number 26.
