Which are the strongest Indonesian brands?

BCA retained its title of being Indonesia’s strongest brand with brand strength rating of AAA+, although its brand value dipped by 3% to US$2.9 billion. The decline in brand value was mainly due to the depreciation of the Indonesian Rupiah against the US Dollar. The banking brand had made enormous gains in 2022, achieving a total loan growth of 11.7% year-on-year.

On the ESG front, BCA ramped up its sustainability efforts with increasing participation in sustainable financing and management of waste from business operations. By December 2022, the brand saw credit disbursements to sustainable sectors increase by 14.9% year-on-year to reach US$12.3 billion, contributing 25.4% to BCA’s total financing portfolio.

Following closely behind BCA are Bank Mandiri, BRI, BNI and Telkom Indonesia.

One of the greater takeaways from the report is that mining brands in Indonesia yielded much harvest in their brand values as demand for energy and oil increased due to fallout from the Ukraine conflict.

All mining brands posted brand value increases of at least 5%, with all but one either seeing improvements to or maintaining their rank positions. Higher coal prices drove financial performances, and consequently brand value of several mining brands rose. For instance, brands such as Bayan Resources (brand value up 34% to US$178.76 million), jumped eight places to 44th position, Adaro Energy (brand value up 32% to US$177.07 million), gained six positions to reach 45th position, Indika Energy (brand value up 10% to US$101.65 million), maintained its ranking at 64th place, Indo Tambangraya Megah (ITM) (brand value up 7% to US$73.83 million) saw its ranking decrease by one position to 73rd and Bukit Asam (brand value up 10% to US$71.08 million) posted a two-place rank improvement to 76th position.

Meanwhile, United Tractors (brand value up 5% to US$93.48 million) retained 67th position through growth attributed to stronger revenue, in turn supported by higher contracting revenues and sales of construction machinery.

Alex Haigh, managing director of Brand Finance APAC said, “Fuelled by the nation's energy and oil demand, mining brands have shown outstanding growth in Brand Finance’s Top 100 Indonesian brands rankings this year. This growth in brand value parallels optimistic financial performance as the economy resumes post-pandemic activity. We also see strong performance for brands from other sectors in our report, such as BRI and Indah Kiat Pulp & Paper, which have been committed to improving their sustainable efforts while growing their brand value.”
