Indian Premier League 2016 Brand Value Study

Duff & Phelps has published the third edition of our annual* study of Brand Values in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The report ranks the franchise brand values for six teams in the IPL based upon a relief from royalty analysis coupled with an assessment of six other factors; including management strength and on-field performance, marketing strategy, celebrity influence and marquee players, geographical location, governance and transparency and social media engagement.

Key findings include:

  • Total value of the IPL has grown by 19% over the last five quarters to reach US$ 4.2 billion.
  • Mumbai Indians had the highest brand value in the IPL
  • Royal Challengers Bangalore were the biggest gainers with brand value increasing by 31%, while Kings XI Punjab were the biggest losers.
