A quick look at the top growing brands confirms how outgrowing the now and changing at the speed of life creates admirable value growth.  Encouragingly, the top growing Best Indian Brands too have begun to understand and demonstrate the levers that drive growth and value. Maruti Suzuki, our top growing brand for the second year in a row has done an exemplary job with Reliance, Kotak, JSW, HDFC and Ashok Leyland not far behind. Our analysis of the Best Global Brands reveals some simple truths. Truths that are useful for Indian Brands to consider while driving growth in our rapidly changing market.”

In this ever-shifting context, to grow, brands need to outgrow. Outgrow barriers, challenges, markets, competition, mindsets, technology and potential. Which is why businesses need brands more than ever. The Best Indian Brands understand this value  in belief systems and purposes, and hence propel this change without losing the way.”
