Europe For Pharma Mid-Caps: Tough But Necessary

Executive Summary

Europe’s growing reimbursement hurdles and falling prices, compounded by a currency and sovereign debt crisis, mean the region’s no longer a strategic priority for Big Pharma. But while major pharmaceutical firms have sufficient scale and reach to continue to move jobs abroad and step up their emerging markets activities if conditions don’t improve closer to home, most of the rest of industry’s smaller commercial players – including the Big Biotechs – don’t.

Germany’s Pricing Revolution: Why The World Should Be Watching

Germany’s new early-benefit assessment system for all new drugs launched since Jan. 1, 2011, radically changes the status of Europe’s largest market. It was once a bastion of free (and thus relatively high) pricing, which firms used to signal their drugs’ value to other markets. Now, prices of new drugs will be negotiated between sponsors and the country’s association of statutory sick funds, on the basis of an added-benefit score determined by the G-BA, or Federal Joint Committee. Since those net prices will be made public, and many other countries reference German prices, there’s a real risk of a downward price spiral across Europe.
