This Persistence Market Research report examines the global iodine market for the forecast period 2016–2024. The primary objective of the report is to identify opportunities in the market and present updates and insights pertaining to various segments of the global iodine market.

Iodine is a halogen element in group seven of the periodic table, with atomic number 53; it is blue-black in colour and has a shiny lustre. Iodine and its derivatives are widely used as an intermediate in industrial chemicals and for human nutrition. The element is sourced from water bodies such as oceans and water pools as well as from seaweed. Iodine deficiency in humans results in various health-related issues such as goiter, mental retardation, heart diseases, and eyesight problems.

To calculate market size, the report considers various aspects based on secondary research. Furthermore, data points such as split by region and market split by application and qualitative inputs from primary respondents have been incorporated to arrive at appropriate market estimates. The forecast presented in the report assesses the total revenue generated by the global iodine market between 2016 and 2024.

When developing the market forecast, the starting point begins with sizing up the current market, which forms the basis for forecasting how the market is anticipated to take shape in the near future. Given the characteristics of the market, PMR triangulates the data via different analysis based on the supply side, demand side, and dynamics of the iodine market. However, quantifying the market across the above-mentioned segments and regions is more a matter of quantifying expectations and identifying opportunities rather than rationalising them after the forecast has been completed.

It is imperative to note that in an ever-fluctuating economy scenario, we not only conduct forecasts in terms of CAGR, but also analyse on the basis of key parameters, such as Year-on-Year (Y-o-Y) growth, to understand the predictability of the market and to identify the right opportunities.

Another key feature of this report is the analysis of iodine market by region, source and application, and the corresponding revenue forecast in terms of absolute dollar opportunity. This is traditionally overlooked while forecasting the market. However, absolute dollar opportunity is critical in assessing the level of opportunity that a provider can look to achieve, as well as to identify potential resources from a sales perspective, in the global iodine market.

Iodine deficiency in humans results in various health-related issues such as goiter, mental retardation, heart diseases, and eyesight problems.

Drivers and Trends

The iodine market is indirectly related to the GDP of various countries across the globe due to their widespread application in human nutrition, biocides, and industrial applications. Due to a surge in the production of iodine in North America, Latin America, and APAC, the iodine market in these regions is estimated to increase at a significant CAGR over 2016–2024 in terms of revenue. With an anticipated increase in production of iodine in APAC in the next few years and prevalence of iodine deficiency in adults, demand for iodine in the region is expected to increase between 2016 and 2024. Some major factors driving the global iodine market are increasing use of iodine as X-ray contrast media and LED/LCD polarizing films as well as government initiatives to increase the use of iodine in human nutrition and animal feed additives.

Market Taxonomy
