Application Brief:

Defoamers are Specialty Chemicals used in various industries like pulp and paper, oil & gas, textiles, pharmaceuticals, detergents, lubricants, food & beverage and others to control foam generated during the production process. It increases the efficiency of the machines by destroying the excessfoam formed during the production activity.

A defoamer causes the foam bubbles to coalesce in order to reduce or completely eliminate them. Defoamers are used in an eclectic mix of applications. The usage of defoamers in all the applications is at the production stage predominantly. Hence if there are fluctuations in the end user industry, it directly impacts the defoamer used in that particular industry; for example, paints and coatings industry is growing very rapidly due to humongous demand from the construction sector in APAC region, and defoamers are used in paints and coatings during its formulations.

But in case of the textile production in China, it has plummeted in 2015 and hence the market of defoamers in textile applications in China has decreased. These examples delineate the restraints for defoamer.


Market Segmentation:

Defoamers can be broadly classified into two types – silicone defoamers and non-silicone defoamers. Silicone based defoamers are polymers having silicone as backbone. It has silicone as the main chain concatenated with carbon and hydrogen molecules. Non-Silicone defoamers include oil, ester and water bases. Defoamers are also segmented by their utility in different applications such as paper and pulp, paints & coatings, oil & gas, textiles, pharmaceuticals, detergents, lubricants, food and beverage and others.

Regional Analysis:

The report covers four regions namely North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and rest of the world. Asia Pacific market has surpassed Europe and North America due to fast growth of emerging economies such as China and India. Stringent environment regulations have been enforced on companies manufacturing defoamers containing volatile organic compounds (VOCs). As a result, demand for eco-friendly defoamers is on the rise in the Europe and North American regions. Companies like Air Products and Kemira have recently launched defoamer products with zero VOC content.

Key Players:

Dow Chemical Company, Air products & Chemicals, Bluestar Silicones, Evonik Group and Kemira Oyj are the key in companies operating this market. They have been using product launches and expansion into new markets as the key strategies for the past 5 years. It is expected that consolidation by acquisition of smaller players in new countries will become more predominant in the next 5 years period.
