Defoamers play an important role in the pulp and paper industry, as they impede the creation of foam. These defoamers are surface active agents such as amides or esters of fatty acids and PE glycols. The foam created in the paper mills can cause several issues such as problems in the creation of paper, the formation of deposits, growth of bacteria, and drainage issues. Defoamers mend the drainage in kraft pulp stock in pulp mills. Utilization of defoamers results in decrease of paper breaking, thus improves the function of the paper machine. Defoamers unveil lower vapor consumption characteristics that help in saving energy and costs. These properties are expected to drive growth in the defoamers market. The continuous expansion in the imaging technology that is used for several applications in healthcare and other industries is one of the major factors boosting the growth of defoamers market across the globe.

The chemical defoamers are most widely used in manufacturing and processing of liquid paints &coatings. Defoamers are efficiently applied by using brushes, rollers, curtain coating or spray coating. The application of stringent environmental regulations results in the replacement of solvent-based defoamers with the waterborne coating systems. This has led to the requirement for the highly effective defoamers. Unnecessary foam formation outcomes in wastefulness, storage uncertainty of paints and coatings formulations, and other concerns. Silicone-based, oil-based, or wax-based defoamers are broadly used in paint & coating applications that depend on the formulations and physical properties. Additionally, the defoamers are also broadly used in the water treatment industry. Hydrocarbon-based defoamers are broadly employed in sewage treatment applications. Silicone-based defoamers are least preferred due to the higher cost. Thus, the demand for defoamers in paper & pulp & water treatment industries is expected to increase in the coming years.

The rise in the usage of additives such as defoamers in food and drugs is registered in the Code of Federal Regulations under the U.S. government regulations. These regulations are a matter to change and CFR is reviewed every year. These regulations have been implemented to control the utilization of defoamers in food and drug applications; though, the regulations vary from one region to another. Therefore, every company needs to comply with the regulations of the countries in which it operates in order to protect itself from any loss due to the modification in regulations. The World Health Organization (WHO) is taking efforts to create international guidelines on food additives with an aim to normalize the regulations across the globe. But, most of the developed or developing countries choose to follow their own rules to protect the interest of the consumers. Thus, the key defoamers manufacturers in the global defoamers market are focused on modernizing their product portfolio in order to increase their customer base and expand their business globally.
