Povidone Iodine Market - Overview

Povidone iodine (iodopovidone and PVP-I) is synthesized by the blend of polyvinylpyrrolidone (povidone, PVP) and elemental iodine to form a stable complex. According to the U.S. Pharmacopeia, povidone iodine is a complex of iodine with povidone. It contains not less than 9.0% and not more than 12.0% of available iodine (I), calculated on the dried basis. It is widely used in infection prevention and instrument sterilization materials owing to its excellent antimicrobial action on a wide array of microorganisms.

Based on application, the skin sterilization segment held major share of the global povidone iodine market in 2017. Povidone iodine is employed broadly in skin sterilization products that are used for preparation of the skin prior to surgery, and post-operative skin cleansing. Povidone iodine-based products are povidone iodine surgical scrubs, povidone iodine solution, and swab sticks used for preparation of the skin prior to surgery and post-operative skin cleansing. Demand for povidone iodine-based skin sterilization products is increasing owing to its excellent performance properties and rise in demand for pre- and post-surgery sterilization products across the globe. This trend is likely to continue throughout the forecast period. Infection prevention is also a key application segment of the global povidone iodine market.

In terms of value and volume, North America accounted for prominent share of the global povidone iodine market in 2017. The region is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. North America is experiencing an increase in number of trauma, dental, and maxillofacial and bariatric surgeries in the U.S. This has positively impacted the demand for antiseptics and disinfectants. Furthermore, regulatory bodies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC) have implemented stringent regulations on surgical hand antiseptics. The U.S. has experienced an increase in hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). This has boosted the demand for antiseptics and disinfectants. Povidone iodine is preferred in surgical hand antiseptics and infection prevention products owing to its excellent efficacy against microorganisms. This is estimated to augment the demand for povidone iodine in North America. The market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand rapidly during the forecast period, led by the growth in the health care sector due to public and private funding and increase in awareness about health care products, primarily in emerging economies of China and India. However, povidone iodine-based antiseptics and disinfectants have shorter period of action compared to their close substitutes such as chlorhexidine alcohol and sodium hypochlorite. These substitutes are preferred in long action applications such as catheter insertion, skin preparation for surgery, and hand wash before surgery. This is projected to restrain the market in the near future.
