Technological advancements in materials sciences and improvements in test methods to evaluate the performance of defoamers have expanded the scope of applications in various end-use industries. Leading manufacturers offer VOC-free defoamers that are highly compatible for aqueous coatings and adhesives.
Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/27/2017 -- Global Defoamers Market: Overview
Defoamers, including deaerators, are especially useful in eliminating foams which are frequently produced during the manufacture and application of coatings and printing inks. They are increasingly useful in the prevention of large air occlusions and macro-foam formations found in waterborne formulations. Foam formation significantly interferes with the applications processes of the ink, manufacturing processes of the paper and pulp industry, and causes defection in the paints. Defoamers work by destabilizing the foam causing it to rapidly collapse, thereby improving surface viscosity and elasticity, enhancing efficiency in industrial operations. The surge of defoamer applications in various end-use industries such as paper and pulp, paints and coatings, and automotive has positively impacted the defoamers market across the globe.
Global Defoamers Market: Trends
Silicone and non-silicone defoamers are major product types available in the market. Silicone anti-foam agents find widespread use in modern waterborne coatings and printing inks driven by the rising demand for anti-foaming characteristics of defoamers. Silicone anti-foam are preferred in these applications since they include longer operational lifespan, remarkable reactivity with different process ingredients, and high insolubility, thus offering high quality surface finish. In addition, they have lower surface tension compared to other organic products. The increasing applications of silicone defoamers in diverse industry verticals such as chemicals, textiles, paints and coatings, pharmaceuticals, and food production are expected to propel the global market. There is an extensive use of non-silicone defoamers in food processing industry since they are less toxic and biodegradable. Cumulatively, these developments are boosting the global defoamers market.

Global Defoamers Market: Market Potential
Technological advancements in materials sciences and improvements in test methods to evaluate the performance of defoamers have expanded the scope of applications in various end-use industries. Leading manufacturers offer VOC-free defoamers that are highly compatible for aqueous coatings and adhesives. They have emerged as cost-effective alternatives to various mineral oil defoamers. Recently, BYK Additives & Instruments, a leading supplier of coating additives, launched BYK-1799 and BYK-1788, ant-foaming solutions suitable for UV radiation-curing coating systems. BYK-1799 as a robust ant-foaming agent is extremely compatible for matt or pigmented coating systems and different types of printing inks. Various other market players have also launched anti-foaming applications that are chiefly characterized by significant dispersion property and stabilization of large number of silica-based matting agents.
Multinational chemicals manufacturing giant BASF has added a high-performance defoamer—based on organo-modified polysiloxanes—which exhibits a broad compatibility with a variety of binder systems and has a marked stability and efficiency. In addition, the defoamers is especially useful in water-based architectural coatings, industrial coatings, and pigment concentrates. Furthermore, the defoamer conforms to specific FDA and EU requirements to and hence used for food packaging applications. Several companies such as ADDAPT Chemical B.V are increasingly focused on developing cost-effective and environmental friendly additives offer bio-based and VOC-free defoamers, accentuating the market growth.

Global Defoamers Market: Regional Outlook
Geographically, Asia Pacific is a prominent market for defoamers market. North America and Europe showcase immense potential for the players in the global defoamers market. Water-based anti-foaming agents are increasingly being preferred to silicone-based defoamers in the emerging markets, since they are cost-effective and have high de-aerating effect. The growing demand for defoamers for water treatment, paints, textiles, and petroleum in emerging nations of Asia Pacific, such as China, is stimulated by the rapid pace of industrialization. Growing demand for industrial waste-water treatment has propelled the defoamers market in these regions. Stringent regulatory requirements against the use of VOC in paints and additives have spurred the demand for environmental-friendly defoamers in North America and Europe.
