Antifoaming Agent Market Size, Share, Opportunities, And Trends By Type (Water-Based, Silicone-Based, Oil-Based, Others), By End User Industry (Oil And Gas, Water Treatment, Food And Beverage, Textiles, Healthcare, Pulp And Paper, Others), And By Geography - Forecasts From 2019 To 2024

Published: Mar 2020 | Report Code:  KSI061610276 | Pages:  114

Antifoaming Agent Market is projected to witness a compound annual growth rate of 4.00% to reach the total market size of US$7.056 billion in 2022, from US$5.799 billion in 2017. The growing manufacturing sector in all regions and increasing demand from such as pulp & paper, oil & gas, paints & coatings, and water treatment sectors are the key factors contributing to the growth of the industry. The global demand for end-use applications such as papers, oil, processed food, and medicines are generating demand for the antifoaming agent. Increasing trend of technological advancements has enabled manufacturing companies to shift to products with less volatile emissions and fewer loadings. However, the major restraining factor is their high loading levels, which affect the chemical structure of the polymer, in the case of oil- and water-based antifoaming agents. Pulp & paper is expected to be the largest application, mainly due to the wide use of the water-based antifoaming agent in pulp & paper manufacturing. Presently, North America holds the highest market share owing to the high growth of end-use industries, local manufacturing, and increased number of domestic players in various market segments. High demand for pulp & paper and paints & coatings applications has propelled the demand from APAC region, to make it the fastest-growing regional segment during the forecasted period.
