U.S. tech companies dominate world's most valuable brands

Tech completely dominates all other industries when it comes to brand value, according to WPP and Kantar Millward Brown's 12th annual global brands report released Tuesday.*

Not surprisingly, nine of the top 10 brands are tech companies, with some of the biggest U.S. tech giants owning the top five: Google, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon and Facebook. At the same time, most of the new entrants on the list also belong to mega U.S. tech companies, like YouTube (65), Salesforce (90) Netflix (92), and Snapchat (93).
