Many renowned businesses and trade media regularly rank organizations by the strength of their brand and reputation. Some of these rankings greatly influence how people perceive and appreciate the work we do at Bayer. As such, we’re proud to share some recent results:

In the "World’s Most Admired Companies" ranking by U.S. business magazine Fortune, Bayer comes fifth out of all chemical companies worldwide in terms of our image. We enjoy a strong reputation across the industry, especially regarding our innovation, global competitiveness, social responsibility and professional development.


About this Ranking:

To determine the best-regarded companies in 52 industries, leading executives, directors, and analysts were asked to rate enterprises in their own industry on nine reputation criteria. A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed. World’s Most Admired Companies ranking has been conducted annually since 1997 and is one of the most cited and recognized global reputation benchmarks.


Bayer is among the world’s top brands in the pharmaceutical industry according to the current ranking “Global 500 – Annual Report on the Most Valuable and Strongest Global Brands” by the London-based rating agency Brand Finance, in which Bayer takes fourth place in 2021.


About this Ranking:

Each year Brand Finance – one of the world’s most influential brand rating agencies – determines the most valuable and strongest brands using the “Royalty Relief Approach”, which values the company brand based on the hypothetical cash flows that are saved because the respective business owns the brand, and therefore does not need to license it.
