Apple comes in second with an estimated value of $612 billion. But if U.S. brands still dominate, Chinese names are catching up fast. Social media giant Tencent makes the chart at number five, with retail titan Alibaba in seventh.Kantar Chief Marketing Officer Nathalie Burdet says top brands are soaring in value: "So first of all, an incredible growth - 42% and the total value of the top 100 equals $7.1 trillion.
