Limited Healthcare Infrastructure and Weak Intellectual Property Protection are Among the Challenges Pharma Faces with Emerging Market Expansion
Date:3/10/2010

WALTHAM, Mass., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that pharmaceutical companies entering emerging markets must be prepared for market conditions that differ substantially from those of mature markets, including deficient healthcare infrastructures and logistical difficulties in reaching consumers in remote rural markets.

The new report entitled Strategic Overview of Pricing and Reimbursement in the BRIC Markets -- Brazil, Russia, India and China -- also finds that pharmaceutical companies will need to address weak intellectual property protection as well as governments that may not be supportive of large foreign pharmaceutical companies' efforts to establish a strong market presence.

For example, senior Russian government officials have talked of the possibility of revoking the data exclusivity agreement that guarantees at least six years of protection against unfair commercial use of data in Russia. In India, multinationals have had to resort to litigation to defend their brands' market exclusivity. In China, numerous international brands have lost sales to Chinese copy products that were approved shortly before or after the multinational originator companies received marketing approval for the new chemical entities. Multinationals also are concerned that governments in emerging markets might increase their use of compulsory licenses to ensure that key medicines are available to their citizens at relatively low prices.

Yet, despite these challenges, emerging markets offer significant growth opportunity because of thriving economies, unmet medical needs, increasing healthcare investment and growing patient populations. The BRIC markets in particular have been the focus of pharmaceutical industry attention for potential growth.

"Faced with declining growth rates in mature markets, pharmaceutical companies are looking to emerging markets, especially the BRIC markets, to boost their sales significantly," said Neil Grubert, M.A., Director of Pricing and Reimbursement Research at Decision Resources. "These markets certainly offer exciting opportunities, but they also present some formidable challenges for multinationals that are unfamiliar with the very different market dynamics in these countries."
