These rankings identify the brands which have logged the greatest number of improvements across 13 metrics each month – ranging from brand awareness and reputation, to purchase consideration and customer satisfaction.

Anta rides Winter Olympics buzz to pole position in China 

Anta has claimed the top spot among China’s Biggest Brand Movers in February.  

The Chinese sportswear and accessories manufacturer made gains in 12 out of 13 YouGov BrandIndex metrics, across the Media and Communication category (Aided Brand Awareness, Ad Awareness, WOM Exposure, Buzz), Brand Perception category (Impression, Satisfaction, Value, Quality, Recommend, Corporate Reputation) and Purchase Funnel category (Consideration, Purchase Intent).  

Anta had served as the official sportwear partner of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, which was held from 4–20 February this year and was watched by over 600 million people in China. The brand’s impressive improvement across multiple brand health metrics comes after it signed popular Chinese freestyle skier Eileen Gu as its brand ambassador in January. She later clinched two Olympic gold and one silver medal during February’s games.  

Dior was the runner-up, with upticks in Media and Communication metrics (Ad Awareness, WOM Exposure), Brand Perception metrics (Satisfaction, Corporate Reputation) and Purchase Funnel metrics (Consideration, Current Customer).

The LVMH-owned French luxury fashion house tapped rising Chinese consumer interest in winter sports, sparked by the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, to launch a men’s Ski Capsule collection – which includes jackets, pants, helmets, goggles, gloves and boots. Additionally, ahead of Valentine’s Day in February, Dior also launched a new lipstick exclusively on Tmall, a popular e-commerce platform owned by Alibaba Group.

Pechoin took third spot, with the Shanghai-based skincare brand seeing improvements in Media and Communication metrics (Ad Awareness, Buzz), Brand Perception metrics (Satisfaction, Quality) and Purchase Funnel metrics (Consideration).
