Five mobile phone brands made it to the top-ten list from among the twenty listed, making it the largest category in the report.

TRA’s Brand Trust Report 2020 is the result of comprehensive primary research conducted on its proprietary 10-brand-behaviours which make up the brand trust matrix.

The report lists 323 categories and 41 super-categories and F&B and FMCGs.

The categories with the largest number of brands are F&B (151 brands) and FMCG (144 brands) contributing to 29.5 per cent of the total brands. LG secures a grand slam with leadership in televisions (all-India rank 5), refrigerators (All-India Rank 14), washing machines (all-India rank 26). Some other category leaders in TRA’s Brand Trust Report 2020 are Patanjali Dant Kanti (all-India rank 15) from toothpaste category which has broken the nine-year winning streak of Colgate, and Airtel (all-India rank 20) from mobile service providers.
