Dublin, May 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 'Anti-Foaming Agents Market by Type, Application - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2022-2030' report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global anti-foaming agents market size valued to USD 6.31 billion in 2021 and is predicted an elevation up-to USD 10.00 billion by 2030, with a CAGR of 5.2% from 2022-2030.
The anti-foaming agents or defoamers are chemical additive substances formulated to eliminate or prevent froth formation in various industrial processes. These defoamers may be water-based, oil-based, silicone-based, or of such other type. The anti-foaming agents eliminate the existing foam or prevent further froth formation, by adhering to the froth bubbles, destabilizing them, and consequently collapsing the bubbles.
The anti-foaming agents hold wide applications in end-users like pulp & paper industries, oil & gas sector, water treatment plants, paint & coating industries, pharmaceutical industries, food & beverage industries, textiles sector, detergents & cleansing agents, and other industry verticals, to reduce froth formation during blending, filtration, filling as well as other industrial processes. The use of anti-foaming agents results to improved process control, enhanced equipment capacity, reduction in time-period of the process, increased yield, reduced production loss, higher energy efficiency, and increased cost-effectiveness of the overall process.
Market Dynamics and Trends
The global anti-foaming agents' market is on a spur owing to factors including growth of various end-user industries, increasing demand from emerging economies, control on VOC emissions as well as environmental concerns and regulatory guidelines regarding discharge of industrial effluents. Besides, upsurge in the demand for anti-foaming agents in foods & beverages industry, specifically due to increasing consumption of convenience food, beverages, bakery items and confectioneries; tends to proliferate the anti-foaming agents market growth in future.
However, reverse trends, limited awareness about the product, and high loading levels of antifoaming agents in the industrial process is obstructing the growth of the anti-foaming agents market.
Moreover, the advancements in product technology, formulations of new products with enhanced production processes, development of effective and low-impact chemicals will create new opportunities for the anti-foaming agents market growth in future.
Market Segmentations and Scope of the Study:
The anti-foaming agents market share analysis is based on type, application, and geography.
Based on type, the market is segmented into water-based, oil-based, silicone-based, and other.
