YouGov publishes brand rankings yearly based on the data from always-on brand tracker, YouGov BrandIndex. FMCG brands are tracked daily around the world, enabling us to consistently and accurately measure consumer attitudes towards those brands. 

The brands in YouGov’s FMCG rankings 2023 were ranked based on Consideration score, which is a measure of likelihood of purchase from the category. The top ranked rankings show the brands with the highest Consideration score between January 1st 2022 and December 31st 2022. To determine the improvers rankings, brands have been sorted by change in consideration score (highest to lowest between the time range of 2022 vs 2021). 

The scores are representative of the general population of adults 18+ (some are online representative) except for India which is national urban representation. For all markets, a minimum base size of 100 is mandatory for conclusive results.

All scores listed have been rounded to a single decimal place; however, we have used additional precision to assign ranks. All brands included in YouGov’s FMCG top ranked rankings have been tracked for a minimum of 6 months, and all brands included in YouGov’s FMCG improvers rankings have been tracked for a minimum of 18 months.
