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.
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.
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.
The global defoamers market is segmented into the product, end-user industry, and region. On the basis of product, the global defoamers market is segmented into oil based, water based, silicone based, and others. On the basis of the end user industry, the global defoamers market is segmented into paper & pulp, water treatment, paint & coatings, food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, oil & gas, agrochemicals, chemical, metal working, and others. On the basis of region, the global defoamers market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.
Based on the product, the global defoamers market can majorly be segmented into three sub-segments, which are oil based, water based, and silicone based. The oil-based sub-segment is expected to dominate the global defoamers market owing to its demand for application in various end use industries.
The Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global acoustic market owing to the extensive adoption of defoamers products in the automotive and consumer electronics industry. Countries such as China and Japan are expected to hold the largest share in the defoamers market in the Asia Pacific region. Also, the developing countries such as India and China in the Asia Pacific region are likely to create vast growth opportunities for the key manufacturers. This factor is projected to drive the growth of the defoamers market.
The Asia Pacific is expected to lead the global defoamers market as China is expected to hold a significant share of the defoamers market due to the huge adoption of defoamers in paper & pulp industry, water treatment, and paints & coatingsindustries. Asia Pacific region is a manufacturing hub of defoamers, and it accounts for one-third of the global production. Accessibility of raw materials for defoaming agents at low cost is projected to drive the growth of defoamers market during the forecast period. Moreover, the key players are focusing on increasing their manufacturing facilities in the Asia Pacific region in order to cater to the rising demand for defoamers from various end-use industries in the region. The defoamers market in North America and Europe is expected to expand at a slow pace during the forecast period.
Some of the prominent players operating in the global defoamers market are BASF SE, Dow Corning Corporation, Evonik Industries AG, Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd., Ashland Global Holdings Inc., Clariant International AG, Elkem Silicones, Momentive Performance Materials Inc., Wacker Chemie AG, and others.
The key manufacturers are focused on investing in research and development activities to offer innovative acoustic sensing technologies for various applications in end-use industries. Moreover, key players in the global defoamers market are focusing mainly on merger and acquisition and developing strategic partnerships with other players in order to expand their business globally.
The major players are focused on expanding their business by offering innovative manufacturing technologies and also increase their expertise to manufacture a variety of defoamers. The defoamers market is highly fragmented. Most of the defoamers are manufactured in Europe. Main manufacturers of silicone defoamer are located in the Belgium,U.S., Germany, the Netherlands, and U.K. Key manufacturers operating in the defoamers market are broadening their distribution channels across developing nations in order to cater to the increasing demand for defoamers in developing countries.
