2-Iodophenol Market was valued at USD 31.4 Billion in 2022 and is poised to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% over 2023-2029. The chemical compound 2-iodophenol, that has the molecular formula C6H5IO, is a derivative of phenol in which an iodine atom (I) is substituted for one of the hydrogen atoms on the phenol ring. It is employed as a starting material or intermediate in various chemical synthesis industries. The increased demand for specialized chemicals in the pharmaceutical industries like 2-iodophenol for the synthesis of drug intermediates and active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) in research and drug discovery drives demand for this compound. Furthermore, the requirement of 2-iodophenol in chemical synthesis and organic chemistry as a reagent to participate in various chemical reactions due to the presence of the iodine atom like halogenation, cross-coupling, substitution, and other types of reactions is anticipated to drive the market.

Additionally, producing 2-iodophenol and its derivatives for research institutions and pharmaceutical companies that demand specialty chemicals presents prospects for businesses that provide bespoke synthesis services. Currently, compliance with stringent regulatory and environmental regulations, in chemical and pharmaceutical industries, to ensure the quality and purity of 2-iodophenol to meet the demands of environmentally conscious customers is becoming popular in the market. But, the high cost of iodine, a key material for 2-iodophenol synthesis, along with the potential health hazard is anticipated to hinder the market growth. Moreover, the increased demand for solvents in several industries, rising medical and pharmaceutical sectors, increased competition among the key market players, and improved facilities for research and developmental activities are anticipated to propel the market during the forecast period.
