WALTHAM, Mass., March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources has produced
a new report that finds that Bristol-Myers Squibb and Otsuka Pharmaceutical
spend almost twice as much on Abilify's promotion as other marketers of
atypical antipsychotics spend promoting their agents. Surprisingly,
psychiatrists and primary care physicians surveyed cite Eli Lilly's Zyprexa
and AstraZeneca's Seroquel, respectively, as the companies from which they
receive the most promotional material, and fewer than 10% mention Bristol-
Myers Squibb or Otsuka Pharmaceutical as a top-of-mind company in atypical
The overall branded atypical antipsychotics market is expected to grow
from $15.9 billion in 2007 to $17.8 billion in 2011 before declining to
$13.5 billion in 2012. These market dynamics are due to a balance of
generics, launches of new agents, and growth in new indications.
"The atypical antipsychotics market has undergone huge shifts in market
leadership that will continue over the forecast period (2007-2012)," said
Sandra Chow, analyst at Decision Resources. "Eli Lilly's Zyprexa had been
the U.S. sales leader for many years. However, in 2006, Janssen's Risperdal
overtook Zyprexa's position as the sales leader for the seven major
markets. Seroquel will become the seven-market sales leader in 2008.
Changes in market leadership will continue over the forecast period as four
of the five leading atypicals (Risperdal, Zyprexa, Seroquel and Pfizer's
Geodon) face generic competition."
