The global iodine market is predicted to witness substantial growth over the forecast time period, owing to the growing number of iodine deficient patients in developing countries, such as China and India. The increasing use of iodine in LED polarizing films and x-ray contrast media is expected to further drive the iodine market globally. However, fluctuating iodine prices due to its shortage might hamper this market’s growth in the future. Nevertheless, the technological advancement in the extraction process of iodine, especially from caliche ores and seaweed, is expected to offer new growth opportunities to the players operating in this market in the upcoming years.

The global iodine market can be classified on the basis of type, application, and regions. Based on the type, the iodine market is fragmented into natural brines, nitrite ores, and others. Nitrite ores are widely used to extract iodine and expected to be the fastest growing segment in the future. Additionally, natural brines are projected to hold a considerable market share in the upcoming years. The application segment of the iodine market includes X-ray contrast media, LCD polarizers, health nutrition, animal nutrition, pharmaceuticals, fluorochemicals, catalysts, biocides, and other applications. X-ray contrast media is likely to dominate the market in the near future. In addition to this, the demand for iodine in pharmaceutical and animal and human nutrition application is likely to grow significantly in the next few years.
