ALK launches growth strategy
Transformational strategy to redefine ALK's position in the global allergy market and stimulate a new era of growth for the company.
Growth strategy: Establish and succeed in North America
North America is the world's largest allergy market, with over 50 million allergy sufferers, and it offers ALK the greatest medium-term growth potential. For example, there are around 10 million AIT-eligible allergy sufferers in the USA alone, just one-third of whom actually receive AIT today.
Growth strategy: Complete the tablet portfolio for all relevant ages
ALK is committed to offering a full portfolio of tablets for all relevant ages, covering the five most common global respiratory allergies.
Growth strategy: Patient engagement systems and adjacent business
ALK will establish a new commercial consumer care division to drive digital patient engagement with the ultimate aim of creating new value from ALK's expanded allergy presence.
