Potassium Iodide Price Trend for the First Half of 2022

Prices for potassium iodide have surged in the first half of 2022 as a result of an increase in demand for potassium iodide pills in the European region owing to the Russia-Ukraine war. European consumers are hurrying to acquire iodine and potassium iodide pills, which help mitigate the effects of nuclear radiation exposure, while pharmacies in Finland, Norway, and Luxembourg are running low on stock.

Since the start of the Russian invasion, manufacturer inventories in the United States have decreased. As a result, the cost of Thyrosafe potassium iodide pills, sold in the US, has doubled. The company's potassium iodide products are in high demand in the European and North American pharmaceutical industries as well.
