International Strategy Analysis

Internationalize your Consumer Health and Pharma Business

The good old days of Pharma & Consumer Health businesses are irretrievably gone. To continue growing, the ability to quickly adjust to global market dynamics and needs is essential. In this fast-paced, challenging time, it is important to up the ante on international strategy to ensure that it can appropriately serve your company’s growth ambitions. Considering that Emerging Markets develop and grow much more quickly than mature markets, a shift in focus and investments to the growing international markets is something to be considered.

International Strategy Approach

Switch from your home market focus to international market focus

Leading international Pharma and Healthcare experts point out that to be successful in the long term, and to elevate your business to the next level, it cannot be confined to only a few countries. An international country portfolio is crucial to avoid dependence on a single market (home country), which can be very risky in the long-term. With a portfolio of 15-20 countries (7-10 countries to start with), a company can become more independent from any future crisis to come.
Our Chameleon Pharma Experts understand that the future is global and recommend ‘letting go’ by developing, harvesting, or maintaining strategy in place for mature or home markets and investing in growing international markets. In the future, and even now, international markets are where additional revenues will come from.

It might be good to talk to one of our International Experts. We have guided companies through the establishment of new business units and developed strategy scenarios in order to optimize revenue streams. Often, it makes sense for indication leaders to differentiate the segments or design it less risky in adding a new indication to your core indication focus.

  1. International Online and Digital Strategy

The leading and most successful companies are already familiar with the profits that can come from the latest breakthrough technologies, mail order, online pharmacies, and digitalisation. Gaining access to your products through online platforms are not only a matter of convenience or comfort for Healthcare Consumers; it could also provide them with full-time coverage and a wider range of services, which may add value to your company or local partner company.

–         Did you know that approximately 85% of the population in Emerging Markets would prefer to use Social Media and other online resources to find medicines or a doctor when they have health problems?

–         Did you know that doctors will soon be able to check whether patients have taken their medication as prescribed with the help of a microchip embedded in the drug?

Our CPC consultants support clients by designing new strategies in mail order, online pharmacies, digitalisation and Multi-channel Marketing. We are happy to share our international expertise with you.
