  • 5 years ago
Samsung Electronics has been ranked... by far... the most valuable corporate brand among South Korean firms.
In a recent report, UK-based research agency Brand Finance evaluated 50 local companies, with Samsung Electronics easily topping the list with a brand value of 68 billion U.S. dollars.
Although that's six-point-three percent lower than last year...., the world's biggest smartphone maker has a brand value EIGHT TIMES higher than its closest local rival, Hyundai Motor.
South Korean chipmaker SK Hynix saw the biggest surge in brand value, jumping 62 percent in a year... to seven-point-nine billion dollars.
It was fourth on the list, up two notches from sixth last year.
