Successfully Navigating Self-Commercialisation in Europe


As discussed in our previous paper, Successful Launches in Europe: Complex, But Not Complicated?,,  Europe is one of the world’s largest and most important regions of focus for pharmaceutical and biotechnology manufacturers looking to treat patients and maximise the value of their products. However, the challenges of entering this market, particularly in terms of its complexity, can be intimidating and may deter some companies from launching themselves. Companies may prefer to out-license or sign agreements with distributors, which are the more traditional routes to market. However, these agreements result in less control for the manufacturer regarding all aspects of the launch strategy and decreased long-term company awareness and revenue stream.

The “holy grail” for launching in Europe must therefore combine the advantages of both self-launch and out-licensing/distributor relationships, resulting in maximal product revenue for the manufacturer over the long term.
