TRA's Brand Trust Report (BTR) 2020 came about from a comprehensive primary research conducted on TRA’s proprietary 10-brand behaviours which constitute the Brand Trust Matrix. Respondents in this year’s study included 1,711 consumer-influencers across 16 cities and over 8,000 unique brands were analysed. Out of this, the top 1000 brands were listed in this year’s report.

N. Chandramouli, CEO, TRA, said: "The Covid times have been harrowing for brands, and even consumers have been in an extended state of anxiety for multiple reasons. The impact of the pandemic is visible on the trust placed in brands, leading to a dethroning of many erstwhile category leaders."
