The African market for laboratory equipment has been playing a small role globally with only 2%. However, it is set for growth with more than 8% in 2015 and imports of more than $1,4bn. The greatest chances for companies supplying medical equipment are still in South Africa besides the north African countries. Also Nigeria is growing strongly with over 8,4% and imports of over 70m worth of medical equipment in 2015. It is estimated that Nigeria will be one of the key markets in future and we strongly recommend to have a closer look at Nigeria at the moment besides diffucult times.
