Global Defoamers Market Research Report – Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 – 2021


LONDON, Nov. 7, 2017 — Defoamers or anti-foaming agents are chemical additives that prevents and destroys the formation of foam respectively in industrial process liquids. Commonly used agents are oil and siloxane defoamers, examples of which are polydimethylsiloxanes, certain alcohols, stearates and glycols. The function of the defoamers is to make the foam bubbles coalesce to the point where they are large enough too harmlessly to the surface and then sink.

Defoamers are insoluble in water despite being surface active. It has to be formulated so that it will be dispersed as tiny droplets, i.e. as an emulsion to have a high surface area. The defoamers are mainly used in papermaking and pulp industries at various stages like bleaching, dyeing and scouring. It has also found applications in industrial waste water treatment, food processing, as an ingredient in food to prevent effervescence while serving, and in pharmaceutical industries.

Defoamers are of three types namely water-based, oil-based, and silicon-based. Broadly, it can be segmented in aqueous and non-aqueous systems. Because defoamers are efficacious in controlling both surface foam and foam that is entrained in air, they find applications across a myriad of industries like pulp and paper, petroleum, water treatment, paints and coatings, detergents, textiles, lubricants, food and beverages, etc.

Rising health concerns and stringent government regulations drive the market for more environment friendly defoamers with low VOCs, less chemical content and odor. The major problems posed by the foams in the industrial processes is that they cause defects on surface coatings, prevent the efficient filling of containers, entrapped air can cause seals on the pumps to leak etc.

Asia Pacific is projected to experience rapid growth owing to industrialization in countries such as India and China with unobstructed growth and business friendly regulations. Europe and United states constitute the largest markets in the global defoamers market. BASF, Nalco Co, Dow Chemical Co, Crusader Chemicals, and Cognis Group are the leading companies in the global defoamers market.
