Executive Summary

  • Industry: Life Sciences: Medical Devices.
  • Radiometer’s Business Goals: Engaged kpakpakpa to assist with the local understanding of the intensive care and emergency healthcare segment in Nigeria and to assist in the appointment of a good and credible channel partner.
  • Results: Well-rounded and very granular market survey of Radiometer’s targeted segment that gave a full-spectrum of the actual addressable market for its devices in Nigeria along with introductions to vetted distribution partners.


Radiometer already had an expansion plan across Africa with employee representation in South Africa and Kenya. Although it had appointed a distributor in Nigeria, it was yet to see sales growth that aligned with the projections it created for the country

Radiometer needed a clearer understanding of the market which included the high-level healthcare priorities in both the private and public sectors. It also wanted to expand its local channel in Nigeria. Radiometer chose kpakpakpa to provide clearer insights into the local market and to select new channel partners.


Kpakpakpa arranged a customized business growth solution that lasted over 6 months and culminated with in-person meetings with prospective reliable channel partners. Our solution came with:

  • First-in-kind analysis of the total intensive care unit capacity done in Nigeria.
  • Analysis of the market to get an overview of the current acute care testing solutions market in Nigeria.
  • Understanding the competitive landscape and current install base vendor of blood sampling, blood gas analysis, and monitoring solutions
  • Understanding the healthcare landscape – the split between private and public facilities and the appetite for these products in primary, secondary, and tertiary healthcare facilities.
  • Pricing research to understand competitive pricing and assist with pricing strategies in a price-sensitive market.
  • Curating a list of 15 potential resellers/distributors for Radiometer’s products.
  • Educating prospective suppliers about Radiometer’s solutions and evaluating them for partnership.
  • Assisting with business visit requirements to Nigeria for two members of the business development team.
  • Scheduling face-to-face meetings between Radiometer representatives/sales agent and potential business partners

Outcome – Clearer View Of Addressable Market and Refined Strategy For Long-Term Growth. 

  • New Insights, More Support, New Contacts
    Radiometer received a clear view of the addressable market in Nigeria which allowed them to understand their current local distributor’s challenge in supporting its sales goals. With an understanding of the local market and introduction to new key distributors, Radiometer built a more direct approach to expanding in the West African market that reduces its risk and enhances its chances of long-term growth.

A very positive experience!!


Very satisfied with KPAKPAKPA Inc. services. I was involved every step of the way. One thing I definitely appreciate about this whole setup is that kpakpakpa gave me the insight into the market, before I actually came there, and also listing on potential partners to go through was such a great help because I definitely did not know where to begin. I also had a number of days to choose from for my business visit and the assistance with facilitating these meetings in Nigeria where things can be hard to coordinate was a positive experience.
