Pfizer’s Lipitor revenue worldwide 2003-2019

During 2019, Pfizer’s Lipitor generated nearly two billion U.S. dollars of revenue. For around a decade cholesterol-lowering drug Lipitor was one of the company’s top blockbusters, with record-high revenues of approximately 13 billion U.S. dollars in 2006. In the year of patent loss – 2011 – Lipitor still generated roughly 10 billion dollars, before a heavy drop down to four billion dollars in 2012.

Pharmaceutical company Pfizer

Drug manufacturer Pfizer is headquartered in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. At this moment, it is the world’s leading pharmaceutical company based on pharmaceutical sales of prescribed and over-the-counter drugs. Today, the company is focused on human medicine, divided into two major segments – Innovative Health and Essential Health. However, until 2013 the company also had a notable animal health division which was spun-off and today is known as Zoetis.

Facts about Lipitor/atorvastatin

Lipitor was approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in 1996 for medical use. Since its patent protection expired in 2011, it is now also sold under its generic name atorvastatin. Today, atorvastatin is one of the most prescribed drugs in the United States. The drug is primarily used as prevention for people with a high risk for developing cardiovascular diseases and as a treatment for abnormal lipid levels (dyslipidemia). Generic versions of Lipitor lead to annual savings in drug spending of around 16 billion U.S. dollars.
