Antifoams are chemicals that are widely used for controlling foams, which otherwise causes a lot of problems. The existence of foams poses a lot of serious problems in the operation of industrial process, transportation, filling, and ultimately, the quality of the finished products.
Therefore, many industries widely utilize the services of antifoams. Antifoam formulations are generally available in compound, emulsion, and powder forms, for both aqueous and non-aqueous systems, in the market.
Antifoams are broadly categorized into two types, which are silicone antifoams and non-silicone antifoams. Out of these, silicone antifoams are more well-known and considered the ideal antifoam, as they have low surface and interfacial tension.
Antifoams find applications in dozens of end-user industries, such as food and beverages, chemical and plastics, pulp and paper, oil and mining, construction, water treatment, mechanical fluids, and paints and coatings, among others.
In terms of consumption, North America is currently the largest market of antifoams, closely followed by Europe. The growth in the consumption of antifoams in the pulp and paper and the food processing industries in the United States is primarily responsible for such a high consumption of antifoams in North America.
Hence, antifoams are likely to dominate the market during the forecast period.
