Brand Finance Chemicals 10 2018

The annual report on the most valuable chemicals brands.

BASF has maintained its status as the world’s most valuable chemicals brand, following 13% brand value growth from last year to US$7.4 billion.

The undergoing transformation within DowDuPont will have a tremendous impact on the brands and how they are perceived in the future. So far, Dow has seen its brand value boosted by the merger, while DuPont’s brand value has been significantly disrupted. As the operations are split into three separate divisions, each specialising in a different line of products: agriculture, materials science, and specialty products, DowDuPont will need to raise awareness of these new developments and smoothly manage the transition to ensure the brand portfolio does not lose value.
