Defoamer Market – Key Findings of the Report

  • The growing importance of saving water and preserving the environment, resulting in a rapid increase in the number of water treatment plants, especially in developing countries, is creating opportunities in the defoamer market.
  • The importance of mechanical or chemical defoamers in the manufacture and processing of liquid paints and coatings is fueling the demand for defoamers. Defoamers allow better applicability of paints, especially when applied using sophisticated methods
  • The growth prospects of the defoamer market are driven by environmental regulations leading to the replacement of solvent-based systems with water-based coating systems for industrial defoaming.

To have covid 19 Analysis –

  • The growing fascination with metal artwork and decorative paints is creating demand for defoamers for a smooth, shiny finish. Silicone-based, oil-based, silicone-free, or wax-based defoamers are the main types of defoamers used depending on the formulation of paints and coatings. Silicone based defoamers find many applications in metalworking fluids to reduce the surface tension of water and help metalworking fluids penetrate cavities. This separates the metal surfaces by reducing the attraction between them, and thus reducing the risk of rust or corrosion.
  • The silicone product type held an outstanding 44.7% share of the defoamer market in 2021 and is expected to maintain its dominant position during the forecast period. Low surface tension, thermal stability, chemical inertness, and complete insolubility are promising attributes that make silicone-based defoamers suitable for multiple industries including pharmaceutical, oil and gas, food and beverage, and drinks.
  • Asia-Pacific held a key 34.4% share of the defoamer market in 2021 by volume. The rapid growth of several end-use industries including pharmaceuticals, paper and pulp, food and beverages, and textiles is creating numerous opportunities in the region’s defoamer market.
  • Ongoing standardization of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and USFDA established for the food industry enables defoamer manufacturers to stay compliant with industry regulations to translate into growth opportunities for the defoamer market. defoamer
