Undoubtedly, the United States starts with a clear advantage over the rest of the competing countries in the sector, prevailing in practically all the top 10 positions in the ranking. It should be noted among its companies, some such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Philip Morris, etc.

Although it is true that the ranking does not only include basic necessities, we have also included other products that are not recognized as essential, but in some way if they are part of the consumer's day-to-day life. An example of this is the company L'Oreal, Danone and Heineken among others.

Now, due to the state of well-being that has been created in recent years that has changed, coming to consider essential products other elements that a few years ago were a luxury, personal hygiene products, such as creams, hair care, or even an element that more than one will not leave indifferent, the mobile phone.
