Iodine Market Size Analysis

According to a research survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, in 2022, the Global Iodine Market was worth US$ 101.2 Mn and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% over the forecast period. The market is expected to hit US$ 1,664.0 Mn by 2032 end.

The densest stable halogen is iodine, which is solid and has a rich, inky purple color. As it is found in many foods, such as dairy products, iodized salt, seaweed, eggs, fish, tuna, and other things, it is a highly important mineral for humans. Iodine assists in the regulation of various bodily processes and metabolism while also defending cells from poisonous and destructive chemical impacts.

The increase in people with low body iodine content in developing nations is one of the main reasons to fuel the iodine market’s growth during the projected period. Additionally, it is projected that using iodine in optical polarising films for LCD applications will further fuel the development of the iodine market. Additionally, it is predicted that the numerous benefits of iodine derivatives would temper the iodine market’s expansion.

Market Dynamic


The GDP of different nations is indirectly correlated with the expansion of the global iodine market. Iodine is widely employed in industrial applications, biocides, and human nutrition. To meet the demands of the expanding population, nations like North America, Latin America, and Asia-Pacific are generating iodine at enormous rates. This product will become more prevalent, and the iodine market will expand exponentially. The Global Iodine Market is increasing because of the rising frequency of iodine deficiency, a serious problem for people worldwide.

Government initiatives to expand the use of iodine in human nutrition and animal feed additives are some of the key drivers driving the global iodine market. Other prominent causes include the growing usage of iodine as X-ray contrast media and LED/LCD polarising films.


Iodine excess can cause subclinical or overt thyroid dysfunction in people with certain risk factors, such as those who already have thyroid disease, the elderly, fetuses, and newborns. Depending on the underlying thyroid function, various people respond differently to excess iodine. Iodine poisoning can result in thyroiditis, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, and thyroid papillary carcinoma.

Iodine poisoning brought on by oral intake can show symptoms in various intensities, from moderate to severe. Too much iodine can cause acneiform skin lesions, excessive salivation, gastrointestinal discomfort, and a brassy taste in the mouth.
