Access Full Summary at:

Anti-foaming agents are surface-active materials that remove foam or prevent foam formation in different commercial, manufacturing, or industrial processes. Foam is usually formed during blending or mixing, reflux & distillation steps, and filtration & filling procedures resulting in reduced equipment capacity as well as increased processing time and expense. Thus, to cope up with the problem of foam formation, different types of anti-foaming agents or air release agents are used which are water based, oil based, silicone based, and other materials based.

Increase in demand from various end-use sectors and growth in requirement in emerging economies drive the growth of the global anti-foaming agents market during the forecast period. Apart from that, environmental concerns & regulatory guidelines regarding effluent quantity released through different industries as well as the restriction of VOC emissions is another factor that support the expansion of the market. However, reverse trend and limited awareness regarding the product is expected to limit the market growth. Further, technological advancements in composition and performance of defoamers is anticipated to provide numerous opportunities to the market.
