ALBANY, New York, May 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Transparency Market Research has published a new report titled "Potassium Iodide Market- Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2016-2024." According to the report, the global potassium iodide market was valued at US$ 607.9 Mn in 2015 and is anticipated to reach US$ 1.14 Bn by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 7.3% between 2016 and 2024.
Potassium Iodide is a water-soluble crystalline salt mainly find applications in the pharmaceutical industry. The potassium iodide compound which is mentioned in the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, is the most important medication needed in a basic health system since it is the source of iodine. It is a common commercial additive to table salt, in order to produce iodized salt, lack of which leads to health problems such as goiter and cretinism. Potassium iodide is employed mainly in the x-ray contrast media, pharmaceutical industry, food industry, textile industry and photographic film industries.
In terms of end uses, global potassium iodide market is segmented as X-ray contrast media, pharmaceutical, nutrition, film photography and others which include textile industry and chemical industry. Potassium iodide is used as an intravascular contrast medium for imaging applications. The X-ray contrast medium is used in X-ray based imaging techniques such as computed tomography and radiography for enhancing the visibility of internal structures. The number of uses of potassium iodide in the pharmaceutical sector are increasing at a fast pace than other sectors. Potassium iodide is used for thyroid-related problems such as thyroid storm and thyroid blockade. It can absorb radioactive iodine and prevent the thyroid gland from getting affected by radioactivity. Potassium iodide is used as a key nutritional supplement in the food industry. A healthy diet that contains potassium iodide as a nutritional supplement can prevent diseases such as goiter, hyperthyroidism, and cretinism caused by iodine deficiency. Potassium iodide is used in the film photography industry, wherein it is used as a component for the preparation of emulsion. The less hygroscopic nature of potassium iodide is explored in the film photography industry. The others segment of the potassium iodide market include end-use industries such as textile and chemical (wherein it is used as a corrosion inhibitor).
