Market Access Impact (US) [Haemophilia A]


Losing share to competitors? Understanding market barriers can help close the gap

Haemophilia A treatment is a highly competitive market in the US, where half of the 8 brands we surveyed have nearly equal market share. Understanding the market barriers that prevent doctors from prescribing your brand is essential if you want to build a lasting competitive advantage.

Learn how 7 barriers affect your market share, see who you take share from, and who gets your lost share in Market Access Impact: Haemophilia A (US).

Based on a survey of 100 US-based haematologists, the report covers 8 major therapies from Bayer, Bioverativ/Biogen, CSL Behring, Novo Nordisk, Pfizer, and Shire.

Reasons to Purchase

Top Takeaways

  • Barriers affect over a quarter of prescriptions: The two biggest barriers are responsible for more than a third of that impact.
  • The barrier effect is split evenly: Half of the surveyed brands lose share because of barriers, the other half gain.
  • Not all brands are widely prescribed: Most brands are prescribed by two thirds of doctors or less. However, most doctors are willing to consider brands they don’t prescribe.
  • Barriers have the biggest impact on the middle of the market: Eliminating them would push the 4th place brand down to 6th place, and bump the 5th and 6th place brands up by one spot.
  • Barriers aren’t a problem for all doctors all the time: For the most part, fewer than 20% of doctors experience any one barrier with a given brand.
  • Cost is a huge problem for one brand: Roughly 30% of doctors experience cost barriers with this brand. That’s nearly 10% more than any competitor.
