DISQOVER translates crucial trends, markets and competition into insights

With so much at stake, the decision to go ahead with a clinical trial needs be well-founded. What is the market potential of the treatment under study? How far along are competitors in their development pipelines? What are the chances of success? Careful consideration – and a powerful knowledge platform – wins the race.

Drug development and clinical trials, in particular, is a winner-takes-all business: you either come out on top, or you risk wasting precious resources with little to show for it. Having access to the right market and competition data is thus paramount for success – as is having a clear idea of your position relative to your peers.

Assessing the market

Assessing the market

To do this, pharmaceutical companies need a powerful knowledge platform that allows them to search through huge amounts of market and trend data very rapidly, filter out the information that is most relevant, and compare different data points. This can include disease trends in a particular region or country, the development of a therapeutic area, or more in-depth insights into clinical trial duration, registrations per year, etc. Combined, these insights paint a clear picture upon which stop or go decisions can be based.

Examine the competition

Apart from market trends, your relative position among your competitors is of equal importance in making strategic decisions. How are other initiatives evolving, how long does a clinical phase for this particular treatment type take on average, and how far along are your direct competitors? To get a clear overview, researchers need to be able to search for specific conditions or therapeutic areas, filter by treatment or treatment type, and visualize the data in an intuitive way.

Without a clear competitor analysis approach, pharmaceutical companies risk dangerous competitive blind spots.
