Abstract: In today's competitive landscape, proactive companies are trying to achieve competitive edge and build a strong customer equity. Hence, focusing on brand equity (BE) as the most valuable intangible asset is essential for companies' continued survival and success. Managers are progressively searching for valuable practices to create substantial consumer-based BE. BE is significant in assisting consumers in processing information, especially when the information is overloaded. For firms, growing BE is a crucial objective to gain more favourable associations and feelings of target consumers. Accordingly, this paper addresses this issue through a systematic literature review of the selected papers that conveyed the concept of BE from 2015 to 2020, aiming to review BE concept, proposed BE models and the most frequent ones, the most widely used metrics in developing BE studies. We hope this study provide present conceptual, administrative, and applicable guidelines to the academic community, managers, and brand owners.

Keywords: brand equity; BE; consumer-based brand equity; brand equity models; measurement brand equity; brand equity dimensions.
