Defoaming Coating Additives Market Size (2022 - 2027)

The size of Defoaming Coating Additives Market was USD 898.4 million in 2021 and is anticipated to reach USD 1,427.5 million in 2026, growing at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period 2021 - 2026.

Foams are a dispersion of gas in a liquid. Foaming during the production and processing of coatings, printing inks, and plastics is undesirable as it can cause pitting, pitting, foaming, and defects in coatings, reducing the efficiency and quality. Antifoam coating additives, also called defoamers, are air-releasing agents that prevent the formation of foam bubbles and destroy them. When handling and producing industrial liquids, air absorption can cause larger bubble marks to reflux and foam in the fluid, resulting in sub-optimal filling of production vessels, causing problems on the line fill. The addition of anti-foam coating additives breaks up the foam formed and helps reduce VOC emissions. It also offers improved quality, reduced costs, and increased productivity. The main characteristics of anti-foam coating additives include excellent dispersion stability, improved gloss, and increased stain resistance. A recent trend has been the preferential use of water-based anti-foam coating additives over solvent-based anti-foam coating additives. In addition, the construction sector is driven by the significant increase in demand for residential space in developing economies as well as by an increase in demand for commercial space. Likewise, these economies, with their rising standard of living, have also boosted the automotive sector. Therefore, there is an increasing demand for anti-foam coating additives in the construction and automotive industries. This has proven to be a major driver for the anti-foam coating additive market.

Drivers in the Defoaming Coating Additives Market:

There has been tremendous growth in the anti-foam coating additive market around the world lately. This was facilitated by rapid industrialization. Recent trends indicate the introduction and implementation of strict regulations and sustainability mandates for environmental safety, which have had a great influence on the product characteristics and composition of anti-foam coating additives. In addition, there has also been an increasing demand for clean formulations for coatings and decorative requirements which has contributed to the growth of the global anti-foam coating additives market. Besides, along with the specific demand for low volatile organic compound (VOC) content in types of architectural coatings, there have also been market developments in the field of architectural coatings, which has influenced the growth of the additives market of anti-foam coating. The call for water-based defoamer coating additives is escalating because of their cost-effectiveness. These coatings exhibit large amounts of water in the final product even as the final composition changes depending on the end use.

Restraints in the Defoaming Coating Additives Market:

However, a possible increase in the prices of the raw materials used in anti-foam coating additives could hurt the growth of your market, at least in the short term. Further, in some instances, the anti-foam coating additives have been found to be incompatible with the medium as being anti-foam. These factors might prove to be a limitation on the growth of the global anti-foam coating additives market to an extent.

Market Segmentation:

Defoaming Coating Additives Market - By Type:

  • Silicon-Based
  • Water Based
  • Mineral Oil Based
  • Polymer-Based
  • Other Types

Water Based Defoamer is the fastest growing type segment of the Antifoam Coating Additive market. Water-based defoamers generally contain about 76-92% water. These defoamers are preferred by various end-user industries to oil-based defoamers (which mainly include mineral oil and vegetable oil) because they do not contain hydrocarbon oils. . Globally, silicone-based defoamers represent the largest consumption in the antifoam coating additive market, as silicones have low surface and interfacial tensions, allowing them to flow easily onto the film.

A mineral oil defoamer coating additive includes 86% carrier oil, 6% emulsifiers, and 11% hydrophobic particles. It is utilized for semi-gloss emulsion paints and emulsion plasters. Not suitable for high-grade aqueous industrial coatings as it may cause surface defects. Silicone Defoamer is a low surface tension coating additive, containing polysiloxanes as a key active ingredient. Being more expensive than mineral oil, silicone antifoam is widely used for the formulation of high-quality coatings. When used with pigment concentrates, it does not reduce gloss or reduce color acceptance in high gloss systems. Polymer-type defoamers are silicone-free products used in solvent-based systems.

Defoaming Coating Additives Market - By Application:

  • Architectural
  • Industrial
  • Wood & Furniture
  • Automotive
  • Other Applications

Growing demand from the construction and automotive industries is a key driver of the global anti-foam coating additives market. The change in preference to water-based defoamer formulations over solvent-based formulations is expected to drive the coatings defoamer additive market in the near future. The rising standard of living and growing demand for attractive commercial space and residential homes are factors that are likely to boost the global anti-foam coating market during the forecast period. Antifoam coating additives are widely used in the automotive industry, due to their many advantages such as wear resistance, reinforcement, weight reduction, and acoustic improvement. Rising raw material prices and incompatibility with the defoamer medium can lead to paint defects, such as misting or craters. However, the stringent regulations on solvent-based systems and environmental concerns regarding products emitting VOCs are increasing the growth opportunities of the Antifoam Additives for Coatings market in various applications.

Recent Developments 

In July 2020, Evonik launches a new defoamer, dispersants for architectural paints. To support paint formulators, Evonik's Coating Additives business line has introduced a comprehensive portfolio of additives that facilitate formulation work. One of the highlights is the new TEGO Foamex 9, a mineral oil-based defoamer with long-term effectiveness and good coating compatibility. It can be incorporated during the grinding or lowering phase. The new defoamer complements Evonik's line of siloxane defoamers, allowing the customer to choose the technology that best suits their formulations. This advantage is particularly important for coatings in large quantities. In addition, customers can more easily replace their existing mineral oil defoamers with this new quality. In addition to architectural paints, TEGO Foamex 9 can also be used in pigment concentrates.

In May 2015, Air Products will launch new oil-based defoamers at Eastern Coatings. Airase 4750V is an exclusive vegetable oil-based defoamer, while Airbase 4800 is a 100% active mineral oil-based defoamer. Both defoamers are designed for excellent film compatibility with long-lasting, durable defoamer performance and are currently available in North America.
