found that pharmaceutical research and biotechnology companies invested a record $65.2 billion in 2008, a roughly $2 billion increase over 2007. PhRMA member investment reached a record $50.3 billion, a nearly 5 percent increase over 2007.

Michael Eckstut, Principal and Life Sciences and Strategy Practice Leader, Archstone Consulting, commented, "Our research indicates that the biopharmaceutical sector has made a substantial contribution to U.S. economic growth, and that on average, this sector contributed more to GDP on a per employee basis and grew faster than the rest of the economy from 1996 to 2006."

In addition, the local presence of the biopharmaceutical industry has a job multiplier effect, supporting an even greater number of American jobs, the Archstone study found.
