 Article by: Tony Lisanti, License! Global
The Top 150 Global Licensors accounted for $251.8 billion in retail sales of licensed products worldwide in 2013 versus almost $230 billion in 2012 as a result of several licensors reporting significant increases in retail sales and new licensors that joined the rankings.
The Top 10 Global Licensors reported an increase in retail sales of more than $14 billion, jumping from $112 billion in 2012 to $126.9 billion in 2013, accounting for slightly more than 50 percent of overall licensed product retail sales.
A total of 59 global licensors reported retail sales of $1billion or more, up from 56 licensors in 2012, representing $225 billion in retail sales or 90 percent of total licensed product retail sales.
It is important to point out that the total year over-year increase in retail sales is attributable to several factors – real growth of the licensors, acquisitions and the addition of new licensors. It provides a true picture of the significance of brand licensing and its importance and contribution to the overall retail industry.
In this year’s report, 12 new licensors have joined the rankings, representing a combined total of almost $7 billion in retail sales of licensed merchandise in 2013.
