Iodine to Record Surge in Demand
Increasing research in healthcare has spawned interest in many new elements and possible materials that can be used for treatment and diagnostics. Iodine has gained popularity as its use in the healthcare industry is being explored.
Cancer has been a matter of concern for the scientific community for quite a while, and research on the treatment for cancer has only gained impetus in recent times.
Now, there have been new scientific studies that have shown that newly designed nanoparticles containing iodine can kill cancer cells by causing DNA damage when activated by radiation. This new development can bring in revolutionary changes in the way iodine is used in the healthcare industry.
Iofina PLC has reported excellent sales of iodine and has also depicted that iodine and halogen derivative products have led to a strong demand outlook as markets reopen after the COVID-19 pandemic. Iofina produced around 249 tons of crystalline iodine in the first half of 2021, and has also announced that expansion plans are on track. The company also stated that the construction of a new facility will also be started by the end of this year.
With an increase in demand and applications, the iodine market is expected to record stable growth and generate substantial revenue over the coming years.
