More than 550 manufacturer and retailers participated in this year's study.

Pepsico and Walmart shared the top spot in Kantar Retail's latest PoweRanking study, the benchmark of how retailers and manufacturers view each other in the most important areas of the manufacturer-retailer relationship.

Over 550 manufacturer and retailer respondents participated in this year’s study. The results of the 2017 survey were compared with the results of 2015 and 2016 to determine the causes behind shifts in the rankings.

At first glance, the results mirror those from 2016, but a double-click into specific metrics reveals shakeups in the top 10 for both retailers and manufacturers. Given the state of continuous chaos, many in the industry have shifted their attention to delivering financial goals and focusing on the bottom line.

The 2017 US PoweRanking study reflects the continued rise of courageous growth leaders that prioritize innovation and insights over margin management. If you are going to grow, you need to muster the courage to lead.

PoweRanking® is the go-to assessment for industry executives and analysts to identify best-in-class manufacturers and retailers. Chosen by their peers, the leaders are ranked on metrics ranging from strategy to business fundamentals, uncovering pockets ripe for collaboration and growth.
