As indications become more crowded, and the needs and influence of external stakeholders continue to evolve, pharma organizations must make optimal product launch investment decisions that reflect both the opportunity at hand and the competitive environment.

To support new product launch investment decision making at pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, Best Practices, LLC undertook this research, which benchmarks the total investment for launch activities during the four budget years leading up to launch. This report will support brand and marketing leaders in developing optimal total resourcing plans and fund allocations for their new brands based on Peak-Year Sales Forecast, Market Archetype, Product Type, and Physician Type. The report also highlights the top success factors for effective product launches in the current healthcare environment.

Brand and marketing leaders can refer to this report to develop competitive launch and pre-launch activity budgets to ensure successful U.S. market entry for their new products.

Study Snapshot

Best Practices, LLC engaged 48 marketing and commercial leaders from 38 leading pharmaceutical, biotech, and life sciences companies through a benchmarking survey instrument, capturing resourcing efforts from 51 product launches. More than 80% of the benchmark participants serve at the director level and above.

Key topics covered in this report include:

  • Industry investments for new pharmaceutical product launch from 3 years prior to launch, through launch year
  • Budget allocation to 12 key marketing, education and market access activities during and prior to launch
  • Investment timing for conducting 50+ activities
  • FTE allocated to key launch activities
  • Anticipated budget & activity trends
  • Top three success factors


Key Findings

Select key insights uncovered from this report are noted below. Detailed findings are available in the full report.

  • Early investment (Year – 3 & Year – 2) is less than 1/4th of total spend for all 4 years. Resource needs make their largest leap going into Year – 1, while Launch year investment growth is driven by new commercial demands.

  • In terms of the launch activities, Market Research is an early investment focus for benchmark participants, trailing off as launch approaches. Medical Affairs, Physician Education, and Agency Fees are staples across the launch timeline.

  • Many approaches exist to segmenting market types. The Asset Development process focuses on existing Therapeutic Area knowledge, Market Size and Competitiveness. Best-in-class market planners develop their strategies, tactics, budgets and programs to reflect their specific market-entry archetype.
