The global defoamers market size reached US$ 5.3 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 6.8 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.6% during 2023-2028.
A defoamer is a chemical additive used as an anti-foaming agent to destabilize foam formation in industrial process liquids rapidly. It restricts the formation of foam and decreases surface tension. Some commonly used defoamers include polydimethylsiloxanes, silicones, stearates, glycols, insoluble oils and inorganics, such as talc and silicates. They are usually insoluble in a foaming medium and are oil-based, water-based or silicone-based. They exhibit properties, such as low viscosity, low affinity for air-liquid surfaces and easy spreadability. Defoamers aid in preventing residue deposits, bacterial contamination and drainage issues, thereby enhancing the operational life of the machinery. As a result, they are widely used across industries, such as oil and gas, chemicals, food and beverage, agriculture, mining, water treatment and pharmaceutical.
Defoamers Market Trends:
Significant growth in the chemical industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Defoamers are widely used in the manufacturing of paints, inks and coatings to prevent defects, such as fisheyes, popping, cratering and depressions. Moreover, the widespread adoption of defoamers in water treatment facilities and municipal and industrial wastewater streams is providing a thrust to the market growth. They are used for optimizing sludge dewatering, thickening, clarification, filtering and floatation processes. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the development of water- and bio-based defoamers, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. In comparison to the traditionally used petroleum-based variants, they are manufactured using sustainable raw materials and have low volatile organic compounds (VOC) content. Other factors, including extensive research and development (R&D) activities, along with the implementation of favorable government policies, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
