Iodine contract market stays above spot price; both assessments move up
Published: Wednesday, 02 January 2019
The iodine contract market price remained higher than the spot market price for the second month in a row due to consumers looking to sign longer-term contracts and with the iodine market still undersupplied.
Iodine prices in both the spot and contract markets rose in
December 2018, with the contract price remaining above the spot
price for a second consecutive month.
The contract price moved ahead
of the spot market price for the first time in almost two
years in November.
