the top 100 megabrands white paper, revealing the world’s leading
Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) brands ranked by retail sales value in

Euromonitor’s report shows that global FMCG sales reached USD 4.2
trillion in 2018 with Asia Pacific accounting for the biggest share at
29.5 percent, followed by North America at 21.2 percent and Western
Europe at 21.1 percent.

According to Euromonitor International’s report, the top five megabrands

1. Coca-Cola is the world’s largest FMCG brand with Latin America
accounting for 40 percent of the company’s global sales and Mexico being
the single most important country for the brand.

2. Pepsi is the world’s second-largest soft drinks brand behind
Coca-Cola. The US drove Pepsi’s success at USD3.5 billion sales in 2017.

3. Nescafé is the leading hot drinks brand worldwide. Asia
Pacific accounted for a third of Nescafé’s total retail sales in 2017,
with Japan ranking as the top country for hot drink sales.

4. Lay’s is the world’s leading packaged food brand. The US led

brand by sales, with China, its second-highest country for sales behind
the US. The country is forecast to increase beauty and personal care
sales by over 40 percent by 2022.

“While several major brands have maintained their ranking for some time,
the balance across the list is shifting. People’s attitudes to health
and premiumisation are evolving and brands that cannot meet new
realities have lost out. Changes in how people research and shop online
are having a profound impact. Also, the importance of different regions
of the world has changed for many of these megabrands, raising the
question of where companies should focus their resources most
effectively,” comments Tom Rees, industry manager at Euromonitor
