Market Access Impact: Psoriasis (US) 2017

Product Code:
Publication Date:
March 2017

Top brand takes a big lead thanks to market barriers

In the US, market barriers are having a major impact on the brands used to treat psoriasis—affecting more than a third of all prescriptions and helping some brands stay ahead of rivals. Eliminating barriers would narrow the top brand’s sizeable lead, and send the third place brand toppling all the way down to sixth place.

Find whether barriers are holding your brand back, and what you can do about it, in Market Access Impact: Psoriasis (US).

Based on a survey of 100 dermatologists, the report covers 8 major therapies from AbbVie, Amgen, Celgene, Eli Lilly, Janssen Biotech, Novartis, and Pfizer. Handy graphs and charts reveal which of 7 different barriers cost your brand the most market share, and which ones help you take the most from competitors.

Top Takeaways

  • Market barriers have a big impact: They affect more than one third of psoriasis prescriptions in the US. Cost and market access barriers have by far the biggest impact.
  • Barriers widen the top brand’s lead: A net share increase of more than seven percent keeps the leading brand comfortably ahead, but it would continue to lead even if barriers didn’t exist.
  • Three brands see significant losses because of barriers: Each of them sees a net market share loss of between 3 and almost 6 percent.
  • Barriers are propping up the third-place brand: Without them, this brand would drop into the bottom three, and two lower-ranked brands would overtake it.
  • Most brands are widely prescribed: 65 to 90 percent of surveyed doctors prescribe the top six brands, while fewer than ten percent of them prescribe the last place brand.
  • “Other” brands benefit too: In aggregate, brands not surveyed see the second largest barrier-related gain, but even without barriers they would still rank ahead of most surveyed brands.
