Defoamers Introduction

A defoamer, also used interchangeably with anti-foaming agents, is a chemical additive which reduces and hinders the formation of foam formation in an industrial liquid processing. Anti-foaming agents and defoamers are quite different from each other, antifoaming agents hinders the formation of foams while defoamers eliminate the produced foam in a liquid stream.

Defoamers Market Dynamics

  • Growing demand for Defoamers in Various End Use Industries

The demand for defoamers is increasing at a considerable pace owing to its growing demand from various end use industries like paper and pulp, paints & coatings, water treatment, and others. The industry of defoamers is expected to witness a notable growth outlook owing to extensive application as surface agents in the production of paper and pulp products used in packaging products and other applications.

The increasing preference for water borne paints and coatings requires the use of silicone defoamers for foam control instead of solvent-based coatings, which is expected to boost the silicone defoamers market in the coming years.

Other factors which will augment the growth of the defoamers market is the escalating need for defoamers which will not have a toxic effect on the environment through the release of hazardous by products. This is also expected to propel the demand for defoamers in near future.

  • Increasing Demand from Paints & Coatings Industry

Defoamers are used in the paints and coatings industries as an additive to protect paints from getting spoiled while in storage. Additional, defoamers are used in the industry to prevent algae and fungi from infesting the stored paints and coatings. The damage to paints and coatings surface due to microbes and fungi attack has been a major concern in the industry.

According to infrastructural intelligence, nine countries are expected to witness significant growth in the construction industry, regions such as, Africa, South America and Middle East are estimated to see positive growth in the construction sector.

Apart from construction sector, paints and coatings are significantly used in other industries that have recorded strong growth in the past few years like EVs and aircrafts. Paints and coatings industry is poised to experience considerable growth due to the boost in the end user industries. Thus the growth in the paints and coatings industries are expected to drive the consumption of defoamers in the coming years.
