Overview of the Global Defoamers Market
The global defoamers market, which is currently in a phase of somewhat sluggish growth, sees the bulk of demand coming from industries such as pulp and paper, paints and coatings, and petroleum. However, the defoamers market continues to feel the repercussions from the closure of numerous paper mills worldwide. As is the case with several conventionally-used chemical additives, defoamers have also come under the scanner for some of their reported environmental impacts. All of these factors will stop the market from achieving a high growth rate – it is expected that the global defoamers market will achieve a low to medium single-digit CAGR over the forecast period.
In countries such as India and China, where industrialization is happening at a frantic pace, and the regulations remain comparatively open, the defoamer market will see slow yet relatively unobstructed growth. With this, the Asia Pacific defoamer market will witness rapid growth, the report forecasts.
External factors that have stimulated growth in the global defoamers market are: Stringent government regulations banning/restricting VOC use and a palpable rise in the inclination toward ecofriendly products, wherein the use of dioxin free defoamers is high). Defoamers are of three types: Water-, oil-, and silicon-based. Because defoamers are efficacious in controlling both surface foam and foam that’s entrained in air, they find applications across a myriad of industries.
The report forecasts that the demand for defoamers will be the highest from the pulp and paper sector through 2018, whereas the use of defoamers in the petroleum industry will see progressive growth over the remainder of the decade. The formulation of green defoamers will give the defoamers market a fillip, as will innovative and novel products.
