According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Defoamers Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” the global defoamers market size reached US$ 5.3 Billion in 2022. Defoamers are chemical additives that reduce or eliminate foam in various industrial processes, such as pulp and paper manufacturing, wastewater treatment, food processing, and chemical processing. Foam is an unwanted and troublesome byproduct that can reduce process efficiency and quality, increase processing time, and cause safety hazards. Defoamers break down the surface tension of the foam, causing the bubbles to collapse. These products contain surface-active agents, such as silicone or mineral oils, that spread across the surface of the foam and disrupt the bubbles' stability. They exhibit low viscosity and low affinity for air-liquid surfaces and are easily spreadable. Polydimethylsiloxanes, silicones, stearates, glycols, insoluble oils, as well as inorganic compounds like talc and silicates, are some of the commonly employed defoamers.
Global Defoamers Market Trends:
The significant growth in the chemical industry is the key factor driving the defoamer market growth. Besides this, the increasing product utilization across water treatments and municipal and industrial wastewater management plants for optimizing sludge dewatering, thickening, clarification, filtering, and floatation processes is presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. Moreover, the rising demand for defoamers from the flourishing food and beverage (F&B) industry to maintain the quality and texture of food products represents another significant growth-inducing factor. Concurrent with this, the escalating use of defoamers in manufacturing paints, inks, and coatings to prevent numerous defects, including fisheyes, popping, cratering, and depressions, is creating a positive outlook for the market. In addition to this, the advent of environment-friendly water- and bio-based defoamers that are made from sustainable raw materials and have low volatile organic compound (VOC) content compared to petroleum-based defoamers is aiding in market expansion. Furthermore, rapid industrialization, extensive research and development (R&D) activities, favorable government policies, and expanding product applications across the oil and gas, textile, construction, adhesives, sealants, automotive, and cosmetic industries are contributing to the market growth. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 6.8 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 4.6% during 2023-2028.
