Understanding the Challenges for a New Vaccine to Enter the Market

Surveying Pediatricians and Physicians to Evaluate Different Product Attributes


A consulting team was helping a biopharma client forecast the potential market penetration for a new pediatric vaccine. They wanted to better understand the decision-making process of prescribers, and which key purchasing criteria and attributes weighed heaviest.

The GLG Approach

The client worked with GLG to recruit and survey more than 100 prescribers including pediatricians, primary care physicians, and heads of purchasing. The GLG Advanced Analytics group worked with the consulting team to create a conjoint survey where multiple attributes could be bundled and weighed against one another to understand the ideal composition of the vaccine offering.


GLG exceeded the target sample size of 100 survey completions and ensured a balanced regional representation. The client said they were “very appreciative of all of [your] efforts” and found GLG’s project teams “incredibly helpful.”
