The pharma giant said it expects to total revenues to hit $80bn by 2030, helped by the launch of 20 new medicines over the year six years, compared with $45.8bn in 2023.

To drive this growth, the company said it will continue to invest in disruptive innovation and new technologies "that will shape the future of medicine".

"Today AstraZeneca announces a new era of growth," said chief executive Pascal Soriot. "In 2023 we delivered the ambitious $45bn revenue goal set a decade ago. With the exciting growth of our innovative pipeline, which has the potential to transform millions of lives, we are now aiming for $80bn by 2030."

AstraZeneca also reiterated its commitment to decouple carbon emissions from its revenue growth.
