Anti-Foaming agents or Deformer is a Chemical additive that hinders the foam during the fermentation process or to remove foam which is already formed. Formation of foam will hamper the process by deforming the surface coating products. Pharmaceutical and food & Beverages are widely depended on anti-foaming agents.

Global Anti Foaming Agent Market Segments Size & Growth:

Global Anti Foaming Agents market is accounted for $5.31 billion in 2017 and expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% to reach $6.954 billion by 2024 during the forecast period 2018-2024. Major factors that are mainly driving the market growth by an increase in the number of applications, environmental concerns and regulatory for the release of effluents by various industries and control on VOC emissions. However, lack of awareness regarding the products hampers the growth of the global antifoaming agents market.

Global Anti Foaming Agents Market Segments Share:

Global Anti Foaming Agents market is categorised into by type which consists of water based, silicone based, oil based, and so on. Silicone-based foaming agents will enhance the growth due to their properties such as chemical inertness, thermal stability, insolubility in water etc. By application, it is classified by food & beverages, detergents, pulp and paper, fuel additives, pharmaceutical, oil & gas and others. Pulp & paper and oil & gas applications are expected to have the most significant share in the market due to minimising the defects, the formation of foam on the surface and entrapped air. In oil & gas industries they are used to eliminate oil foam, refinery and in gas-oil separation.

By Geography, North America is dominating the growth of the global antifoaming agents market, regarding the value and the growth in North America is mainly attributed because of the high demand of end-user industries, local manufacturing sectors, and rapid growth in domestic segments. Furthermore, Asia-Pacific is witnessing the fastest growth during the forecast period, owing to demand paints & coating and pulp & paper applications to avoid foaming.

 Global Anti Foaming Agents Market Segments Trends:

  • Emerging techniques to reduce the formation of foam in industrial coating and architectural, Ashland, Inc. has developed a foam control agent known as Drewplus with EBS wax and mineral oil technologies to have an effective foam control process.
  • In April 2017, Ashland, Inc. has acquired Pharmachem Laboratories, Inc. to manufacture products which give fragrance and flavour to houses.
