The global defoamers Market is projected to worth $10,540.6 Million by 2026 and the market is projected to showcase 4.4% CAGR during the forecast period. The defoamers market is driven by an increase in the utilization of defoamers in paper & pulp industry as well as in the water treatment industry.

Market Dynamics

The rise in demand for defoamers from water treatment and paints & coatings industries is expected to drive the growth of defoamers market. Defoamers plays a significant role in the manufacturing and processing of liquid paints &coatings. They are very effective in the usage of coatings with brushes or other application techniques such as curtain coatings or spray coatings. Application of strict environmental regulations has replaced the solvent-based defoamers with water-based coating systems. Huge amounts of special surfactants are used in water-based coatings. This has augmented the need for highly effective defoamers. Extreme foam creation is expected to end in inadequacy; lengthy crushing time, storage uncertainty of paints and coatings formulation, and other concerns such as loss of grip, gloss lessening, and loss of opacity. High utilization of defoamers in the paints & coatings industry is projected to boost the defoamers market during the forecast period.

Market Insights

Defoamers are broadlyused in the sugar beet industry. These defoamers are used in fried foods such as potato chips and several other snacks. These defoamers are used in the fast food industry for various food products such as fried chicken, french fries, and chicken nuggets. Silicone-based defoamers are used in most fizzy drinks and in various cooking oils to avoid bubbling, while deep frying. Defoamers can be used directly or combined in low foaming cleansing agents. The demand for defoaming agents in the food industry is anticipated to increase, as they control outpourings or bubbles during the preparation.
