Reportlinker Adds Iodine – Global Market Opportunities

November 25, 2009

NEW YORK, Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ — Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Iodine – Global Market Opportunities

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0164410/Iodine—Global-Market-Opportunities.html

Global iodine consumption patterns stand rejuvenated by the growing levels of awareness among health consciousness consumers about the importance of iodine as a dietary ingredient in a well-balanced diet. The growing popularity of X-ray, and MRI in medical diagnostics is additionally expected to drive volume consumption of iodine, offsetting iodine’s waning consumption in photographic film, an end-use application which in the recent past has been ravaged by the waxing popularity of digital imaging systems.

Widespread prevalence of iodine deficiency disorders also offers a business case for iodine. Application breakthroughs are expected to give rise to new end-use avenues, and result in significant increases in demand for crude iodine. Replacement of chlorofluorocarbons with fluoroiodocarbons, offers a lucrative opportunity for iodine as a potential substitute for chlorine in CFCs. With bromine-based herbicides increasingly coming under environmental pressure, opportunities exist for increasing use of iodine in herbicides. All of these factors, among several others, provide strong economical fundamentals for the future growth and sustenance of the iodine market.

These and other market data and trends are presented in “Iodine: Global Market Opportunities” by BizAcumen, Inc. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
