Market Analysis: Global Defoamers Market

Global defoamers market is expected to rise to an estimated value of USD 4.69 billion by 2026, registering a substantial CAGR in the forecast period of 2019-2026. The high growth of this market is due to the rising demand from the pulp and paper industry. The report contains data of the base year 2018 and historic year 2017.

Market Definition: Global Defoamers Market

A defoamer is a type of anti-foaming agent which helps in decreasing and restricting the development of foam. It shows surface active properties and is not soluble in a foaming medium. The most important feature of a defoamer is its low viscosity and the power to disperse very fastly on the foamy surfaces. They aid detergents so that they can clean with higher efficiency and reducing the quantity of water which is getting used. Thus defoamers act as additives in various cleaning purposes.

Market Drivers:

  • Rising use of defoamers in several agrochemicals, including fertilizers and pesticides drives the market growth
  • Growth in water treatment infrastructure also boost the market
  • Introduction of new and innovative products is also likely to boost the demand of defoamers
  • Growing demand of defoamers in metal coatings for smooth finishing and shining will drive the market

Market Restraints:

  • Stringent regulations in the code of federal regulations (CFR) and the USFDA acts as restraint for the market growth
  • Decline in usage in printing industry due to digitalization will restrain the market growth
  • Issues pertaining to health which may be amplified by certain defoamers could dampen the growth of the global defoamers market
