Global defoamers market value is anticipated to exceed USD 2 billion over the next seven years due to increasing demand from the end use industries such as paints and coatings. Pulp & paper industry applications dominated the global market in the recent past and this trend is expected to continue over the forecast period.
Defoamers prevent foam formation which causes problems during industrial processes such as biochemical and oxygen transfer from air. They destabilize the foam which improves surface viscosity and elasticity, resulting in higher efficiency in industrial operations.
Full research report on defoamers market analysis:
Key defoamers products include non-silicon-based and silicon-based defoamers. Non-silicon products include oil-based defoamer, water based defoamer, powder defoamer, alkyl polyacrylates, and EO/PO based defoamer. Silicon-based defoamers dominated the global market and accounted for more than one-third of the global market share.
Favorable silicon-based product characteristics include longer operational lifespan, better reactivity with process ingredients, insolubility, and lower surface tension compared to other organic products. Key end-use industries for silicon-based defoamers include chemicals, textiles, paints & coatings, pharmaceuticals, food production, and household cleaning.
Growing non-silicon anti-foam agents in food processing industry which are less toxic and biodegradable are projected to witness positive growth in the near future. Defoamer market is expected to grow significantly over the next seven years due to expansion in R&D initiatives and technological improvement among the major participants in the market.

Defoamer market demand witnessed sluggish growth in the past few years owing to global recession. However, a reviving global economy is expected to increase defoamer demand from the end-use industries. Defoamers play a critical role in various industrial manufacturing processes. Government initiatives in emerging regions such as Asia Pacific and Central & South America to increase their manufacturing capabilities are projected to aid the regional defoamer market over the forecast period.
Defoamers are used as additives in several cleaning applications across multiple industries. These additives help detergents to clean more efficiently by reducing surface tension and minimize water usage. Such favorable properties are presumed to aid the defoamers demand in industrial applications in the near future.
Growing environmental awareness has resulted in companies opting for defoamers containing less VOCs. Such a shift in trend is presumed to hamper the global market in the near future.
