Defoamers Market Analysis By Product (Water-based, Oil-based, Silicone-based), By Application (Pulp & paper, Coatings, Agrochemicals, Water Treatment, Food & Beverages), By Region, And Segment Forecasts, 2014 - 2025

The global defoamers market is expected to reach USD 4.4 Billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Rising investment on water treatment operation across the globe has driven the global defoamers market. Furthermore, growth in pulp & paper production in developing regions of the world has fueled the demand.

Water-based defoamers segment has experienced robust growth over the past few years, owing to environmental benefits associated with it. Shift in consumer preferences towards environmentally sustainable products is expected to result in increased share of water-based defoamers over the next few years.

Silicone-based defoamers dominated the global market, accounting for more than 38% share of the total revenue. Wide usage of silicone-based defoamers in major end-user industries including pulp & paper and water treatment attributed for the largest share. The share of oil-based defoamers is estimated to decline, owing to stringent environmental regulations.

Pulp & paper was the largest application segment of the global defoamers market in 2016. Growth of pulp & paper industry in developing regions such as Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe, and Latin America has fueled the demand for defoamers in the recent past. Demand from agrochemicals and coatings applications is expected to increase at a fast pace.

Further key findings from the report suggest:

  • The global defoamers market was valued at USD 2,938.2 million in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2017 to 2025
  • Silicone-based defoamers accounted to be the largest product segment in 2016 and is estimated to account for more than 38% share by 2025
  • Water-based defoamers segment is likely to expand at the fastest growth rate of 5.1% from 2017 to 2025
  • Pulp & paper is estimated to be the highest revenue generating segment of the global defoamers market in 2025, accounting for more than 27% of the revenue share
  • Defoamers for coatings application is expected to reach USD 1,112.9 million by 2025, owing to rising demand in waterborne coatings
  • Asia Pacific dominated the global defoamers market and the region is anticipated to maintain its leading position over the forecast period, accounting for around 44% share of the revenue
  • Positive outlook in pulp & paper production coupled with prospective growth in coatings industry in China, India, and South East Asian countries is expected to drive the demand in Asia Pacific region
  • North America was the second-leading player in the regional market, accounting for more than 21% share in 2016
  • Producers including BASF SE, Applied Material Solutions, Wacker Chemie AG, Kemira Oyj, Shin Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd, Dow Corning Corp, Air Products and Chemicals Inc., and Evonik Industries AG were the leading players in global defoamers market
  • Fragmented nature of the market coupled with integrated operation led to intense competition
