India Silicone Defoamer Market: Overview

The India silicone defoamer market is anticipated to reach US$299.4 million by the end of 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 4.90% from 2016 to 2024 (forecast period). 

Defoamer is a chemical additive that minimizes and prevents foam formation in a variety of liquid-based industrial processes. Silicone defoamer is a strong silicone emulsified agent with excellent foam reduction and suppression properties. Silicone defoamer is used to reduce foaming in drilling fluids, free workover, and completion fluids. It is particularly effective at low concentration rates and throughout a wide pH range. The growing usage of silicone defoamer in water treatment, food and beverages, paints and coatings, metalworking fluids, pharmaceuticals, and other industries is propelling the India silicone defoamer market.

The simple accessibility of silicone defoamer in a large variety of viscidity properties and its capacity to perform at extremely high pressures and pH levels has significantly boosted the India silicone defoamer market. Its low solubility in foaming medium and better surface-active characteristics with respect to natural defoamers are also important elements driving India silicone defoamer market. Furthermore, the rising appeal of silicone defoamer, backed by its biologically inactive nature and ability to perform in extreme environment variations, is expected to boost India silicone defoamer market in the coming years.

High Demand for Silicone Defoamer from Various Industries to Boost India Silicone Defoamer Market

Increasing demand for silicone defoamer in the pharmaceuticals, metalworking fluids, paints & coatings, and food and beverage industries is boosting the India silicone defoamer market. The rising population density in metropolitan areas, the spike in new housing developments, and the expansion of the automotive sector in India are likely to fuel demand for silicone defoamer in the paints and coatings industry. Moreover, the rising need to decrease foam formation in metalworking activities is expected to increase demand for silicone defoamer in the metalworking fluids industry.

The pharmaceutical industry has a high need for silicone defoamer due to crucial factors encountered during the production of various drugs and the fermentation process. Silicone defoamer is frequently utilized in fermentation, bottle filling operations, antacid production, and antibiotics synthesis due to its exceptional qualities. However, the pharmaceutical industry's demand for silicone defoamer is projected to diminish in the years ahead due to tight rules on non-biodegradable items and a growing emphasis on environmentally friendly products. This factor is expected to limit the growth of the India silicone defoamer market.

Water Treatment to Remain Top Application of Silicone Defoamer

Application-wise, the India silicone defoamer market is segmented into food & beverages, water treatment, pharmaceutical, paints & coatings, pulp & paper, metalworking fluids, oil & gas, textile, and detergents. The water treatment segment has a much greater need for silicone defoamer than in other market segments. This trend is expected to continue in the coming years. With the shortage of clean water and increased concern about water, the need for silicone defoamer for effluent treatment, boiler water or wastewater is skyrocketing. However, if used in large quantities and not properly disposed of, silicone defoamer may negatively impact water table quality, posing a significant impediment to the India silicone defoamer market's growth trajectory.

In recent years, environmental awareness has grown, and as a result, there has been an increase in demand for water-based products made from raw materials such as mineral oil, vegetable oil, ethylene glycol, and wax. Furthermore, the government's focus on wastewater treatment is a major driver of the India silicone defoamer market. Industrial and municipal wastewater can be cleaned and reused using silicone defoamers.
