Despite the influence of several emerging countries, the United States has captured a dominant share of the pharmaceutical market worldwide. The country is home to some of the biggest pharma companies worldwide, and American consumers have access to the most advanced pharmaceutical products in the world, albeit at a cost.
Pharma companies in the U.S.
Pharmaceutical sales revenues in the United States have accounted for nearly half of the global total in recent years. Five of the 10 leading pharmaceutical companies worldwide were from the U.S. in 2021. Pfizer is the new number one U.S. company based on prescription drug revenues worldwide, heavily boosted by its COVID-19 vaccine Comirnaty. AbbVie is another U.S. company that has made a big impression around the world, with the pharmaceutical segment of its operations generating a record 55 billion U.S. dollars in 2021, driven especially by its longstanding top-seller Humira.
