More inquiries hint at tightening iodine supply; market watches for buyers' next move
Published: Monday, 22 July 2019
Firm iodine prices have divided opinion on whether consumers will withhold buying material and if supply is truly tightening.
The iodine spot market remained firm this week at high
levels, while market participants disagreed over whether buyers
will place orders at current price levels.
After a steep price increase at the end of the second
quarter, market participants are split over how iodine
purchasers will react.
