The sunburst chart in above example shows market share of 5 brands, dealing in computers and phones, in three countries – USA, India and Canada. This chart template uses 3 nodes.

The first node represents countries. The second node represents categories (phones and computers). The third node represents brands. The third node also shows the percentage market share of each brand. The arc length of slices in each node is proportional to the data value it represents.
