Amazon reached the top of the list as the world's most valuable brand, outranking both Apple and Google.

Amazon's brand worth is over $315 billion, according to BrandZ. That's up 52% from last year.

The head of BrandZ says the growth is due to Amazon selling a widespread variety of services across multiple categories and regions.

The study also found that luxury is one of the fastest growing sectors thanks to Gen Y and Gen Z consumers preferring digital channels.

The company's other investments include self-driving cars and trucks, Amazon Air, an online pharmacy and food delivery.

It's food delivery service, however, failed to take off in the United States due to strong competition.
