Royal Philips is once again ranked a top 50 “best global brand“. Its brand value increased to USD 12.1 billion (from USD 11.5 billion) resulting in a #43 ranking in Interbrand’s 2018 Best Global Brands ranking. In terms of the perception and experience of the Philips brand, the company’s scores for brand differentiation and brand consistency both rose.

There are no surprises in the top-5 of the list, with Apple, Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Coca-Cola. Philips is the highest placed Dutch brand, before Heineken and Shell.
