Grades of "meaningful" and "difference" for each brand are calculated based on the feedback of surveyed consumers. The "salient" is calculated by combining consumer behavior data, including traffic to a brand's official website, the number of active users of a brand's App, and the brand's search index on Google and YouTube.

The significant increase in the overall brand strength of Chinese companies highlighted the vitality of Chinese brands in the global market, said Doreen Wang, CEO of Kantar Greater China and global chair of Kantar BrandZ.

Wang also noted that the combination of China's industrial chain ecosystem and innovative technology has become a new competitive strength for Chinese global brands.
