The report is an objective analysis of the global defoamers market, wherein the revenue and volume growth of the market is presented. The market study includes the current and forecast figures for the application and product segments of the defoamers market across North America, the Middle East and Africa, Asia Pacific, and Latin America. In addition, a country-wise analysis of the development of the defoamers market is included for the aforementioned regions.
According to the report, economic development in Asia Pacific is spurring the growth of several application industries that utilize defoamers as intermediate agents, such as paints and coatings, water treatment, and pulp and paper, among others.
The utility of defoamers lies in decreasing and preventing foam formation, which hinders industrial processes. In industrial processes, the presence of foam restricts liquid flow and blocks transfer of oxygen from air for the process. To counter this, defoamers of several types, such as silicone oil-based defoamers, are used to prevent foam formation.
Some other factors that are contributing to the growth of the defoamers market are advancement in production technology, consistent product innovation, and the increasing number of applications of defoamers. However, this market has to adhere to regulatory mandates stipulated for defoamers, which is challenging its growth.
The global defoamers market is categorized on the basis of application, product, and region. Water-based, oil-based, silicone-based, and others (such as PO/EP-based) are the product segments of the defoamers market. Of all, in 2014, silicone-based defoamers were the largest product segment and accounted for more than 40% of the global market. The large market share of silicone-based defoamers is attributed to their versatile utility for a large number of industrial applications. Silicone-based defoamers are considered to be heavy-duty, which is mainly due to their ability to crack down surface foam and liberate the trapped air.
In 2014, oil-based defoamers were the second largest product segment of the global defoamers market. These defoamers are embedded with an oil carrier, such as white oil, mineral oil, vegetable oil, or any other oil, which is not soluble in the foaming medium. Silicone oil is an exception to this and is not used as the oil carrier in oil-based defoamers. Other than these, water-based defoamers also represent a major product segment of the overall market.
By application, pulp and paper, water treatment, paints and coatings, food and beverages, and others (printing, agricultural chemicals, pharmaceuticals, mining, etc.) are the segments of this market. Over the past few years, the pulp and paper industry has been exhibiting the highest demand for defoamers. Oil-based, powder-based, silicone-based, water-based, and alkyl polyacrylates are some of the defoamers that are used in pulp and paper applications.
The defoamers market has been divided into the following segments:
