Your key to breaking new ground in emerging markets.
It’s a case of old versus new: established markets with stagnant, single-digit growth in sales versus double-digit performance in emerging markets. Yet much as the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) countries and others hold enormous potential, success has not always been assured. What defence mechanisms exist for brands to tackle the threat of cheap and poorly manufactured generics? How must pharma adapt to domestic business practices to ensure pro-active relationships with local distributors? How do in-country partnerships, networks, and the positioning of established brands work in these markets?
Insightful, pertinent and dynamically presented, FirstWord’s newest report is designed to share critical knowledge and experience to those challenged with establishing brand presence in emerging markets.
Filled with insights from experts in the field, the report outlines the allure—and complexities—of emerging markets, as well as the best practices and strategies to establishing a profitable presence.
Offering their expert views are leaders currently working in the area, such as Serge Scotto (CEO of Taishi Pharma AG), Diego Forero (senior director of Pfizer’s Established Products Latin America) and Wolfgang Brait (recent former head of specialty medicines, Group Emerging Markets), who shared his take on the potential emerging markets offer.
Anyone who needs to know what does and doesn’t work, those who need to know the differences in sales infrastructure and accepted practice, or others who requires advice on building strategies in markets that are in a state of change will benefit highly from this report.

“You know you have to be extremely, extremely careful, in choosing a partner, if you choose this strategy. This is my one piece of advice for potential investors.” Serge Scotto, CEO, Taishi Pharma AG, Switzerland
“You need to create the brand in such a way that safety becomes an integral part of your brand message, if safety is an advantage of yours over the copies. In strong private markets like Brazil, people tend to stick with the brand from Western Europe or from the US simply because they have experience with it.” Wolfgang Brait, former head of specialty medicines, Group Emerging Markets
“There have to be some signs that not only your brand, but you and your company are here and that they can build up a long-lasting relationship with you. They will not want to do that over email or a telephone call, but face to face, with the presence of bricks and mortar, a signed long-term contract and staff. That’s when companies start doing well.” Tay Salimullah, market access consultant, Asia Pacific, Ascendancy Healthcare
