It has not been a smooth experience for the diagnostics industry as there have been many disruptions in the last few years. The industry is getting consolidated as more of the unorganized settings in the industry are being organized which is slowly evident as the industry is seeing a CAGR of 18%.
As at 2014, a total of $51 million was spent on diagnostic imaging centers by the federal government. 187 companies were awarded 968 contracts, with a company averaging about $275,018 in value based on the contract.

PATILAD Laboratory Limited seeks N500 million in long-term financing to cover start-up costs, equipment, building expenses, and working capital.
Funding for the launch of the business is provided primarily by equity from the partners and investors.
The business will reach positive cash flow in its 10th month of operation, allowing for expedited repayment of its loan obligations, as well as for dividends to be paid to the owners. Revenue will top N14,500,000 and profit will reach about N3,843,950 in the 1st year of operation.
The diagnostic industry has no companies with a dominant market share value. The industry generated revenue of $18 billion with a negative growth of -0.2 percent within the year 2012 and 2017. While there are about 14,300 diagnostic centers in Nigeria employing more than 100,000 people, IBIS World expects that proper growth for the industry will start occurring in 2019. This is because it is expected that advances in science will yield service capabilities that are new and improved as the aging population in Nigeria will require better diagnostic services. Demand is also expected to be boosted by the growing demand for affordable and accessible healthcare services for a majority of the population.
