Anti-foaming agents or defoamer are chemical additives that eliminate or reduce unwanted foam development during industrial processes. Foams are the substances formed by trapping air/gas pockets in a liquid or solid. It causes severe problems such as inefficiency in the process, defects in surface coatings, storage instability, and several other losses. Anti-foaming agents are having low viscosity and high surface active properties. It has tendency to spread rapidly on foam surfaces, where it destabilizes foaming layers causing rupture of air bubbles and breaking of foam. Commonly used agents during removal of foams are insoluble oil, silicones, alcohols, stearates, and glycol. At present, these agents find numerous applications in detergents, food industry, paper & pulp industry, water treatment plants, and bio-chemicals industries.

The global anti-foaming market is currently in its advanced stage. Based on type, the market is segmented as water-based, oil-based, and silicone based. Recently, in 2016, silicone-based market occupied the largest share and is supposed to occupy second largest share during the forecast period. This high demand of silicone is because of its low surface tension, chemical inertness, thermal stability, and complete solubility in water. The global anti-foaming agent market is expected to register substantial growth in the near future due to increased applications in paper & pulp industry. Other factors that drive the market are growth in demand for anti-foaming agents in water treatment plants, paints & coatings industry, and bio-chemicals industry.

The report segments the global anti-foaming agents market based on type, application, and region. Based on type, the market is segmented into water-based, oil-based, silicone-based, and others. By application, the market is classified into paper & pulp, oil & gas, paints & coatings, water treatment, food & beverages, detergents, pharmaceuticals, textiles, and others. Based on region, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
