Who wins and loses when brands struggle with cost barriers and limited market access?

Market barriers affect just over 20 percent of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) prescriptions in the US. High costs and limited formulary access are preventing rheumatologists we surveyed from prescribing some brands.

Are they costing your brand market share, or are you winning share from more expensive competitors? Which other barriers are keeping doctors from prescribing your brand?

Based on a survey of 100 rheumatologists, the report covers 11 major therapies from AbbVie, Amgen, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Janssen Biotech, Regeneron, Sanofi, Pfizer, Roche, and UCB. Handy graphs and charts show you how 7 barriers affect your market share, revealing which competitors you gain share from, and lose it to.

Top Takeaways
• Nearly all brands are widely prescribed. Over 80% or more of the doctors surveyed prescribe nine of the 11 brands covered, and 100% prescribe the top brand.
• Five brands gain share. Two of them gain significantly, another gains moderate share and the other two barely gain at all.

Biosimilars are struggling to have an impact. The most prescribed biosimilar is prescribed by just over a third of physicians, but removing barriers could double that.
• Eliminating barriers would have an equal impact at the top and bottom of the market. Leaders and laggards would either lose or gain market share, respectively, in a barrier free world.
• Prescribing challenges not related to perception problems. Surveyed doctors have good awareness of all surveyed brands.
• Market access is not the problem. Barriers related to market access affect far fewer prescriptions than either of the top two barriers.

Insight into 11 major RA drugs
• Actemra (tocilizumab; Roche)
• Cimzia (certolizumab pegol; UCB)
• Enbrel (etanercept; Amgen)
• Humira (adalimumab; AbbVie)
• Inflectra (infliximab; Pfizer)
• Kevzara (sarilumab; Sanofi/Regeneron)
• Orencia (abatacept; Bristol-Myers Squibb)
• Remicade (infliximab; Janssen Biotech)
• Rituxan (rituximab; Roche/Biogen)
• Simponi (golimumab; Janssen Biotech)
• Xeljanz (tofacitinib; Pfizer)
