Global (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, Middle East and Africa) Defoamer Market 2018, Forecast to 2023

Defoamers help to reduce and hinder the formation of foam in industrial process liquids. Foam is a substance which is formed as a result of trapping pockets of gas in a liquid or solid. Foam blocks the transfer of oxygen from air and hampers the flow of liquid. Thus, the formation of foam affects many industrial processes. Defoamers are insoluble in the foaming medium and have surface active properties. An essential feature of a defoamer product is a low viscosity and a facility to spread rapidly on foamy surfaces. Thus, the defoamer is used in multiple end-user industries where the formation of foam possesses the significant threat.

The pulp & paper application dominated the defoamer market during the forecast period, closely followed by paints & coatings in 2016. Paints & coatings application is also expected to witness high growth rate between 2016 and 2021 due to the growing paints & coatings industry in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific, as a result increasing the demand for defoamer in the respective regions. The growing manufacturing industry in the U.S., the Middle East, and Asia-Pacific countries such as China, Japan, and India is also driving the market.

The defoamer market is classified based on type: water-based, oil-based, silicone-based, EO/PO based and so on. The market is dominated by silicone-based due to their enhanced properties such as low surface tension, chemical inertness, thermal stability, and complete insolubility in water.
