Defoamers Market

Defoamers Market by Type (Water Based, Oil Based, and Silicone Based), Application (Pulp & paper, Oil & Gas, Food & Beverage, Paints & Coatings, Detergents, Pharmaceutical, Textiles, and Water Treatment) – Global Forecast to 2021

Report Code: CH 4356 Jun, 2016, by marketsandmarkets.com

[170 Pages Report] The defoamers market size is estimated to be USD 5.48 billion in 2016 and is projected reach USD 6.59 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 3.8% between 2016 and 2021. The growing manufacturing sector in all regions is expected to generate demand and drive the antifoaming agent market during the forecast period. Increasing awareness coupled with regulatory guidelines and environmental concerns are expected to drive the defoamers market during the forecast period. Asia-Pacific is the key market for defoamers, globally, followed by North America and Europe.

Antifoaming Agent Market

Silicone is expected to be largest type of defoamer during the forecast period

The defoamer market is classified based on type: water-based, oil-based, and silicone-based. The market is dominated by silicone-based due to their enhanced properties such as low surface tension, chemical inertness, thermal stability, and complete insolubility in water. The silicone-based segment is also projected to be the second fastest-growing type of defoamer during the forecast period.

Pulp & paper application is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period

The pulp & paper application dominated the defoamer market during the forecast period, closely followed by paints & coatings in 2015. Paints & coatings application is also expected to witness high growth rate between 2016 and 2021 due to the growing paints & coatings industry in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific, as a result increasing the demand for defoamer in the respective regions. The growing manufacturing industry in the U.S., the Middle East, and Asia-Pacific countries such as China, Japan, and India is also driving the market.

Antifoaming Agent Market

North America is expected to account for the largest share of the defoamers market during the forecast period.

Currently, North America is the largest defoamers market, in terms of value, closely followed by Asia-Pacific. Some of the factors driving the growth of the North American market are high growth of end-use industries, local manufacturing, and increased number of domestic players in various market segments.

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing defoamers market due to high demand from pulp & paper and paints & coatings applications. The presence of major countries such as China, India, and Japan is also a major driver of the defoamers market in the region.

Key Market Players

Air Products and Chemicals Inc. (U.S.), Dow Corning Corporation (U.S.), Evonik Industries (Germany), BASF (Germany), Kemira (Finland), Ashland (U.S.), Elements Plc. (U.K.), and Shin-Etsu Chemical Company Ltd. (Japan).

BASF is among the leading players in the defoamers market. The company is developing its defoamer segment by launching new products. BASF launched Efka PB 2744, a fast and effective defoamer for 100% solids coating systems, especially designed for industrial flooring formulations. The new product offers excellent efficiency, long-term persistency, and effectiveness against micro and macro foam. The company launched Efka 2010, for industrial coatings applications. Efka 2010 helps to achieve high-performance silicone-free defoaming. It is compatible with various systems, such as nitrocellulose/alkyd lacquers, 2k polyurethane, solid and acid-cured coatings, and cold-cured epoxy coatings.

Evonik Industries focuses on capacity expansion as their development strategy. Evonik, in a bid to meet rising demand of specialty silicone products in Asia, planned to construct a production facility in Shanghai, China, which is expected to be completed by mid-2017. Specialty silicones are generally used in car seats, furniture, and ergonomic mattresses. The company planned to expand its production capacity of specialty silicones plant in Germany to make its market presence strong. The demand for such products is mainly driven by textiles, coating, construction, and appliance & furniture industries.

Recent Developments

  • In March 2016, Dow Corning Corporation launched Dow Corning 2405 resin, Dow Corning 8590 additive, and Dow Corning 3055 resin. These product deliver an adequate balance of pigment concentration level and foam control along with minimizing VOCs emission.
  • In February 2016, Air products and chemicals Inc. launched Surfynol 107L. It is a non-foaming, surface active and nonionic wetting agent suitable for low-VOC formulations.
  • In April 2016, with an investment of around USD 2.5 billion, Wacker Chemie AG inaugurated a new polysilicone manufacturing site in Tennessee (U.S.) with a production capacity of 20,000 metric tons
  • In March 2016, Evonik, in a bid to meet rising demand of specialty silicone products in Asia, planned to construct a production facility in Shanghai, China, which is expected to be completed by mid-2017. Specialty silicones are generally used in car seats, furniture, and ergonomic mattresses.
