Pfizer - Statistics & Facts

Lately, Pfizer is in the world’s focus due to its COVID-19 vaccine that was developed in cooperation with German biotech company BioNTech. This was the first COVID-19 vaccine widely approved by national health authorities. Pfizer is the world’s third largest pharmaceutical company based on prescription drug revenue. The New York City-based company generated some 42 billion U.S. dollars of total revenue in 2020. As of 2020, Pfizer was among top 5 most valuable pharma and biotech companies with a market capitalization of around 200 billion U.S. dollars.

Pfizer manufactured some of the best-selling pharmaceutical products worldwide. Lipitor was Pfizer’s top drug for many years, but lost its patent in May 2012. Thus, Lipitor’s revenue decreased from around 10 billion U.S. dollars in 2011 to some 1.8 billion U.S. dollars in 2016. Other well-known drugs produced by Pfizer are Lyrica and Viagra. Due to the spin-off of Pfizer's generics business Upjohn during 2020, these drugs are now owned and manufactured by said company. Until 2013, Pfizer also had a notable animal health product line. Pfizer generates around half of its revenue within the United States.

As is common practice in the pharmaceutical industry, Pfizer spends a substantial part of its revenue on research and development. In 2020, the company’s R&D expenditure stood at some 9.4 billion U.S. dollars, or more than 22 percent of its total revenue. With some 78 thousand employees in 2020, Pfizer is also a significant employer all over the world.
