Antifoaming Agent Market Value and Growth Analysis (2021-2026):

The Antifoaming agents market was valued at $ 5.14 billion in 2021 and is predicted to reach $ 6.879 million in 2025, with a CAGR of 4.3% from 2021 to 2026. Defoamer applications are available in a wide range of spectrum. The call for defoaming agents will increase and in the coming years. The overwhelming development of the packaged food industry, the pharmaceutical industry and the textile industry will drive the expansion of the antifoam markets around the world. To complement this growing call, several new players are entering the defoamer market.

The antifoaming agent or defoamer is a chemical additive. The additive is intended to limit foaming or eliminate already formed foam. The antifoam agent works by adhering to the surface of the foam bubbles, weakening and destabilizing them, eventually collapsing the bubble. Defoamers prevent foaming in industrial process fluids. Defoaming agent properties instantly eliminate foaming and prevent further foaming. Foam hampers industrial processes by deforming the surface coatings of products. Foam can be an integral and vital part of a process, or it can be an unwanted side effect. Foam production is a source of a number of costly and time-consuming problems such as loss of product, environmental contamination, and product contamination. Each defoamer is specially designed for individual applications and the worldwide market. Many antifoaming agents are available on the world market. Some of the most employed agents are polydimethylsiloxanes, insoluble oils and some alcohols. The applications of defoaming agents are wide and diverse. Call increases over time. To meet the growing needs, more and more key suppliers are entering the defoamer production market.

Antifoaming Agent Market Trends:

The boom in agriculture in some of the developing economies that span the APEJ region will accelerate the expansion of the antifoam market worldwidely.
