Free Market Analysis



Foam, a bubbly liquid, is often produced as an unwanted byproduct during the manufacture of various substances. Foam poses difficulties to various industries such as chemicals, especially during the biochemical process. It hampers the flow of liquid and blocks transfer of oxygen from air. Therefore, defoamers such as silicone oils are added to prevent problems due to foam. Defoamers are generally insoluble in the foaming medium and possess surface active properties. One of the essential characteristics of defoamers is that they offer low viscosity and spread rapidly on the foamy surface.

Based on product types, the defoamers market can be classified into water-based defoamers, oil-based defoamers, silicone-based defoamers, and others (EO/PO-based defoamers, etc.) Silicone-based and oil-based defoamers are the major product segment of the defoamers market and together accounted for over 65% of the market share in 2014. The market for silicone-based defoamers is essentially driven by their versatility and acceptability in a wide variety of conditions. Furthermore, continuous innovation in product and technology coupled with growing application of defoamers is an important factor driving the defoamers market. Thus, demand for defoamers is expected to increase by the end of 2023.

In terms of demand, silicone-based defoamers dominated the defoamers market in 2014. These defoamers combine two essential properties, i.e., involatility and low surface tension. Silicone defoamers are also chemically inert and insoluble in water and other organic systems. Their property of chemical inertness makes them relatively nontoxic to both humans and the environment. Silicone defoamers are best suited for prevention of foam under conditions of high shear and high levels of low surface tension surfactants. Water-based defoamers is one of the fastest-growing product segments. Water-based defoamers have different types of waxes and oils dispersed in a water base. They are considered to be the best deaerators, i.e., they are best at releasing entrapped air. Other types of defoamers such as oil-based defoamers are estimated to exhibit steady growth during the next few years.

The pulp & paper industry was the largest application segment of the defoamers market in 2014. Buildup of foam in a paper mill results in a number of defects  in the final product and act as functioning barriers for equipment. These include difficulties in formation of paper, creation of deposits, development of bacteria, and drainage problems. Furthermore, effectiveness of the pump gets hampered. Defoamers improve drainage in kraft pulp stock and sulfite stock in the pulp mill. Usage of defoamers leads to reduced paper breaking, thus improving the working of the paper machine. The water treatment industry was the second-largest application segment of the defoamers in 2014. Demand for defoamers in this application segment is increasing due to growing concerns over wastewater and freshwater scarcity. Other application segments such as paints & coatings, food & beverages, and others are likely to exhibit higher demand for defoamers in the near future.

In terms of region, Asia Pacific held the largest share of over 30% of the defoamers market in 2014. Demand for defoamers in the region is estimated to rise at a faster rate by the end of 2023 due to large consumption base, growth of various end-user industries, and lenient governmental regulations. In terms of demand, China, India, and Japan are projected to dominate the defoamers market in Asia Pacific. Europe accounted for the second-largest share of the defoamers market in 2014. Growth of the defoamers market in this region is expected to be steady in 2023 due to stringent regulatory policies imposed by the European Union. North America is anticipated to depict stable growth as the region is technologically advanced and has established markets. Latin America and the Middle East & Africa are estimated to expand at a sluggish rate by the end of 2023.

Companies such as Dow Corning Corporation, Air Products and Chemicals, Inc., Bluestar Silicones, Ashland, Inc. Kemira Oyj, and Evonik Industries AG are prominent players of the defoamers.
