No single factor influences profits more than price. Accordingly, it is imperative to develop an effective pricing strategy early in the product life cycle. However, an optimal price for reimbursement / market access in one market may not be optimal in others and the pervasiveness of international price referencing and parallel trade creates pressures for price convergence often at sub-optimal levels in key markets. Moreover, health technology assessment (HTA) agencies have taken on increasingly important roles in assessing clinical and cost effectiveness and their assessments have spawned a new environment of risk sharing agreements and patient access schemes. By starting early (i.e., well before market authorisation) it is possible to build effective strategies that establish optimal prices by market, provide evidence to maximise reimbursement, and mitigate the effects of price referencing and parallel trade.
