Kantar reviewed more than 22,900 brands in 52 different countries, accounting for 74% of the population and 85% of global gross domestic product (GDP). In this way, we were able to determine that the number of brands selected by consumers increased by 2.6% compared to 2018.

The study also highlighted the role that local brands play. In this sense, the 2020 brand footprint showed that “local brands had a stronger year in 2019 than global brands”.
