The UK company Brand Finance releases a yearly report on the top 500 most valuable brands. Its 2020 edition concludes that the tech sector is the most valuable, with a combined worth of nearly US$967 billion. 5 of its brands, including Huawei, Samsung and Microsoft, also found their way into the report's top 10.

The Brand Finance Global 500 2020 report has found that the tech space has amassed a value of US$966.5 billion, beating banking, retail, telecomms and audio to the most valuable spot by sector. It represents a total of 46 (or 14%) of the brands studied in this publication. Of these, 5 also make up the top 10 most valuable.

They are Google (#2); Apple (#3); Microsoft (#4); Samsung (#5), and Huawei, which made it in at #10. It was found to have a value of US$65 billion. It is the only Chinese tech OEM in this shortlist, and was found to have shipped 44 million units of its Mate and P-series smartphones in 2019, or 50% more compared to 2018.

Huawei's place in this top 10 has also come despite a year marred by its ban from working with US corporations, which led in turn to its inability to officially provide Google Play Services on its phones. It has responded by developing its own app store, mobile services and so on, which it now reportedly intends to persevere with as an alternative to the conventional, Mountain View-dominated Android ecosystem.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
