Defoamers Market is Expected to Reach US$ 4,107.5 Mn in 2023: Transparency Market Research

Albany - NY, Oct. 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rise in demand for defoamers in pulp & paper, paints & coatings, and water treatment applications in Asia Pacific has been driving the defoamers market. Defoamers are used to reduce and prevent formation of foam. Foam poses difficulties to various industries such as chemicals, especially during the biochemical process. It hampers flow of liquid and blocks transfer of oxygen from air. Therefore, defoamers such as silicone oils are added to prevent the problem of foaming. Silicone-based defoamers are the most widely used defoamers across the globe in various applications including pulp & paper, water treatment, paints & coatings, food & beverages, and others. Growth in various application industries especially in Asia Pacific is driving the global defoamers market. However, stringent regulatory policies are estimated to hamper the market growth in the near future.

Silicone-based defoamers was the largest product segment, accounting for more than 40% share of the global defoamers market in 2014. Silicone-based defoamers are considered heavy-duty defoamers and are good at both cracking down surface foam and releasing entrapped air. Oil-based defoamers constituted the second-largest share of the global defoamers market in 2014. Oil-based defoamers have an oil carrier; oil may be mineral oil, vegetable oil, white oil, or any other oil that is insoluble in the foaming medium, except silicone oil. Water-based defoamers are also among the major product segments of the global defoamers market.

In terms of demand, pulp & paper has been dominating the defoamers market since the past few years. Defoamers used in the pulp and paper industry include water-based defoamers, oil-based defoamers, powder defoamers, silicone-based defoamers, and alkyl polyacrylates defoamers. Defoamers used in the pulp and paper industry tackle problems of surface foam and entrapped air. In terms of demand, water treatment accounted for the second-largest share of the defoamers market in 2014. Hydrocarbon-based defoamers are widely used in sewage treatment applications. Silicone-based defoamers are usually not preferred due to their high cost. Other major applications of defoamers include food & beverages and paints & coatings.
