The top three revenue contributing product segments are discussed below

Global silicone-based anti-foaming agents market: The growth of the global silicone-based anti-foaming agents market is expected to increase during the forecast period owing to the increase in the demand for silicone-based defoamers from the paints and coatings, architecture, and automotive industries. APAC is estimated to remain the largest as well as fastest-growing market for silicones throughout the forecast period owing to the rising demand for silicone-based anti-foaming agents in China and several other APAC countries such as South Korea, Taiwan, and India.

Growth of the market for silicone-based anti-foaming agents in North America and Europe is expected to remain satisfactory owing to its mature nature in these regions. Manufacturers in these regions have technologically advanced products and are focusing on product innovation. For instance, in July 2012, Elementis launched DAPRO DF 5800F, an aromatic-free defoamer for industrial solvent-borne coatings,” says Ajay Adikari, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals.

Global water-based anti-foaming agents market: Water-based anti-foaming agents can meet application challenges for construction, paints and coatings, and other water-borne systems. The restrictions on the use of anti-foaming agents have limited the discharge of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and air pollutants, making it ideal for use in coating industries. Technavio’s market research analysts estimate the global water-based anti-foaming agents market to register growth at a CAGR of almost 6% to become the fastest growing segment of the global anti-foaming agents market.

Global water-based anti-foaming agents market: Oil-based anti-foaming agents are heavy duty defoamers and are best at removing surface foam. Oil-based anti-foaming agents spread efficiently and are successfully used in several applications. Mineral oil-based anti-foaming agents are often used in the architecture, wood coatings, adhesives, primers, inks, and plasters industries. The global water-based anti-foaming agents market is estimated to account for a revenue of more than USD 1,344 by the end of the forecast period.

The top vendors operating in the global anti-foaming agent market are:

  • Ashland
  • Dow Corning
  • Elementis
  • Evonik Industries
  • Kemira
  • Wacker Chemie

Other prominent vendors in the market include ALTANA, Ecolab, and Shin-Etsu Chemical Company.
