Abbott is a globally diversified healthcare company with a central purpose to help people live their healthiest possible lives. We offer a broad portfolio of market-leading products that align with favorable long-term healthcare trends in both developed and developing markets. Building on a strong foundation of more than 125 years of success, Abbott is poised to deliver top-tier growth, expanding margins, strong cash flow and increasing returns to shareholders.
Well-balanced diversity is the foundation of Abbott’s strategy and success. Our four major businesses are of roughly equal size, and that balance extends across geographies and payers. We constantly shape our portfolio to ensure that we’re in the right markets and that our success isn’t over reliant on any single therapy, technology, country or payer. And approximately 50 percent of our sales are direct to consumers and patients, making Abbott one of the most consumer-facing healthcare companies in the world.
Abbott is one of the most global healthcare companies in the world with 70 percent of revenue generated in markets outside of the United States and 50 percent of revenue generated in faster-growing geographies where healthcare spending is outpacing the growth of gross domestic product (GDP).
Abbott is well positioned to grow with the major trends underlying our businesses and the broader global environment. In addition to the growth of developing economies and the global middle class, which has vastly expanded our markets and ability to help more people around the world, a related and equally powerful trend driving our business is the aging of the global population. All of Abbott’s major businesses are well- aligned to be relevant leaders and to serve these trends across multiple markets.
Abbott intends to lead — both scientifically and commercially — in the markets in which we compete. Abbott holds various leadership positions across many of its business segments and across multiple geographies. This requires presence in these markets to meet the local healthcare needs and preferences by many key stakeholders, including hospitals, physicians, pharmacies and consumers.
