The significant number of drugs that fail during development mean there is additional pressure on each new product to achieve a successful launch to recoup the pharmaceutical company's RandD investment. The future performance of a drug is generally set by its launch performance; it is often hard to boost sales after an unsuccessful launch.
New products must demonstrate a clinical advantage in order to obtain prescriptions and drive uptake. If improved efficacy cannot be demonstrated, other factors can be harnessed Where secondary advantages such as side effects are used as the key differentiator, promotional efforts must be fully optimized in order for product launch success.
Niche indications are increasingly more attractive as the traditional large markets have become saturated and prospects for new drugs have stalled.
