Market Access Impact: Renal Cell Carcinoma (US) 2018


Market barriers only affect 8 percent of RCC prescriptions in the US. Is your brand losing out?

Despite market barriers only affecting 8 percent of all renal cell carcinoma (RCC) prescriptions in the US, certain brands are losing on market share. Is it yours? Find out what’s driving share gains, and what your brand can do to level the playing field in Market Access Impact: RCC (US) [2018].

Based on a survey of 100 medical oncologists, the report covers 10 major therapies from Novartis, Roche, Pfizer, Exelixis, Amgen, Bayer, BMS and Pfizer. Handy graphs and charts reveal which of the 7 different barriers cost your brand the most market share, and which ones help you take the most from competitors.

Top Takeaways

Barriers affect 8 percent of all prescriptions. Small, perhaps, but brands are still losing out on market share opportunities because of them. Is it cost, formulary issues or some other barrier combinations that cause the most amount of pain?

One brand sees the biggest share increase. But it’s not so far ahead that other brands can’t catch-up. Is your brand leading, or are you in the chasing pack?

One brand sees a significant loss. Despite being prescribed by over 70 percent of physicians, one brand loses nearly 1 percent of its market share because of barriers. Why? And can this be prevented?

Eliminating barriers would close the gap mid-table. Due to the overall barrier impact being below 10 percent, changes at the top and bottom of the table won’t be seen if barriers are eliminated; not so mid-table, where changes would be seen.

Perception is not the problem. Across all 10 brands, awareness and a willingness to use is high. So what could be done to change market shares, and who could benefit the most?
