Given the rapid advancements in technology, there are plenty of growth opportunities across markets, but not all businesses have the capabilities required to identify and tap into them. This often presents a fundamental challenge to businesses in the biopharma industry. Identifying and capitalizing on new market opportunities in an ever-changing environment like pharma requires a research-backed market opportunity assessment.
Irrespective of the market position, i.e., start-ups or well-established firms, not many businesses have the research expertise, time, and resources to conduct an in-depth market opportunity assessment. At Infiniti, we leverage a realistic approach to conduct a market assessment study customized to meet the needs of our clients and the markets they operate in. Our tried and trusted research methodologies are bolstered by a comprehensive understanding of global markets and the strategies of leading businesses in every industry.
The recent advancements in pharma have impacted the pharma landscape leading to drug development delays and diminished R&D productivity. Conducting an in-depth market opportunity assessment can help you thrive amid such uncertainties. Contact our experts to know more.

Market Opportunity Assessment: Our Approach
Based on a detailed analysis of the client’s challenges, we recommended a three-pronged qual-quant research methodology to capture and validate real-time market insights. We began the project with a qualitative exploration of the client’s industry perceptions and drug development approach. We then conducted robust quantitative research by leveraging online surveys to explore unmet market needs and analyze the market opportunity for novel compounds.
The three-pronged approach to market opportunity assessment offered critical research insights around the competitive landscape, market opportunities, drug development, and market positioning. In the initial phase of market opportunity assessment, both primary and secondary market data from various sources were leveraged to identify in-market and evolving players who could be future competitors.
Product profiling based on market segments was also conducted parallelly to understand the offerings of leading market players. Our global market research team also analyzed the pricing strategies of similar products and created price benchmarks to accelerate the creation of new pricing policies for the client.
Market opportunity assessment empowered the client with in-depth research insights covering various factors like competitor offerings, market opportunities, regulatory timelines, administration routes, technologies employed, and new formulations. Using these insights, the client devised a robust drug launch strategy that helped them find a stronger niche in the market.
Market opportunity assessment also enabled our client to improve decision making and drug development by driving improvements through:
