Meta’s market value breakdown: 2012–2023

A look at Meta’s market cap over time shows that the company’s value has mostly been increasing over the past decade. In 2012, the market cap of Meta was $63.1 billion. This more than doubled in 2013, to $139.2 billion. This was also the second-largest annual increase between 2012 and 2023.

Following this, Meta experienced four years of growth at an average annual rate of 39.7%, culminating in a market cap of $512.8 billion in 2017—its first time exceeding half a trillion dollars.

In 2018, Meta’s valuation fell by 27%, to $374.1 billion. This dip was attributed to the fallout from the Cambridge Analytica scandal involving data breaches and its slowest-ever user growth announcement. This resulted in a dramatic 19% fall in share prices and a $120 billion market value loss in a single day. Meta closed out the year with a company value $138.7 billion lower than in 2017.

Meta’s market cap rebounded in 2019, to $585.4 billion. Not only was this a 56.5% increase from the previous year, it was also the company’s then-highest year-end market valuation. Two years of growth followed, as Meta’s value rose by 32.9% and 18.5%, to $778.2 billion and $921.9 billion in 2020 and 2021, respectively. 2021’s figure was also Meta’s highest market cap between 2012 and 2023. 

2022 saw Meta’s market cap fall by 65.3%, to $319.9 billion—the company’s lowest year-end valuation in seven years. Industry analysts say this was a result of economic uncertainty, soaring inflation rates, and an overall volatile stock market, all of which affected tech companies. Meta’s valuation quickly and strongly rebounded in 2023, skyrocketing by 184.4%, to close the year out at $909.6 billion.
