Launch Spend Insights: Companies Now Invest More in Launch Year Than in Previous 3 Ramp-Up Years Combined

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Dec. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- New product launches are continually occurring across various areas in competitive US marketplace. It is critical for organizations to balance the dueling goals of containing costs and producing a successful launch. The on-going challenge that executives face is determining how much to invest, and how to best spend those investments?

56% of the budget for primary care launch is spent before during the launch year, with just 44% invested prior to launch. This contrasts with specialty care launches that invest a greater proportion prior to launch. One experienced executive expressed that "specialty care launches are more frequent and more efficient in terms of required resources at launch. Primary care launch budgets are typically two to four times more resource intensive"
