Beijing, China Aug 14, 2023 ( - In accordance with the recently published report titled "Global Defoamers Market - by product (oil-based defoamers, silicone defoamers, water-based defoamers, others), end user (agrochemicals, food, and beverages, oil, and gas, paints and coatings, pulp and paper, water treatment, others), region (Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, Rest of the World (RoW)), Forecast to 2028" by Tanalyze, it is projected that the Global Defoamers Market will experience a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.9% during the period from 2023 to 2028.

Market Overview
Defoamers play a crucial role in numerous commercial manufacturing and industrial processes by effectively countering the formation of foam resulting from gas dispersion in liquid mediums. These surface-active agents possess distinctive characteristics such as low cohesive energy density and viscosity, which contribute to reducing surface tension. By remaining insoluble in the foaming medium, the surface-active agents present in defoamers exhibit exceptional spreading capabilities, ensuring efficient and rapid action.

The production of defoamers involves the utilization of various raw materials, each offering unique properties and advantages. Mineral oil, wax, vegetable oil, alcohol, glycols, and stearates are among the commonly employed raw materials in the manufacturing of defoamers. These materials are carefully selected to ensure optimal performance and compatibility with diverse applications.


The global defoamers market is projected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.9% during the forecast period of 2023 through 2028. By 2028, total revenues are expected to reach nearly $5.1 billion, an increase of $1,259 million from nearly $3.8 billion in 2022.

Defoamers are available in different types, each tailored to specific requirements and preferences. Silicon-based defoamers, renowned for their excellent stability and versatility, are widely utilized across industries. Water-based defoamers, on the other hand, offer environmentally friendly solutions while maintaining high efficiency. Oil-based defoamers are preferred in applications where compatibility with oil-based systems is crucial. Additionally, there are other defoamers that cater to specialized needs, providing tailored solutions for unique foam-related challenges.

The report provides an analysis based on each market segment, which includes oil-based, silicone-based, water-based, and other defoamers. Silicone-based defoamers held the largest market share of 37.8% in 2022 in terms of revenue followed by water-based defoamers, oil-based defoamers, and other defoamers. By 2028, total revenues from the silicone-based defoamers segment are expected to reach $1.9 billion. The water-based defoamers segment is expected to rise at the highest CAGR of 6.1% throughout the forecast period.

Water-based defoamers are expected to see the fastest growth rate because of their high rate of adoption in the well-established paper industry. The global production volume of paper and paperboard was approximately 417.3 million metric tons in 2021. This was an increase of over four percent in comparison to the previous year. Since 2010, global production of paper and paperboard has remained relatively stable, averaging roughly 400 million metric tons per year. Further, according to the U.S. Pollution Prevention Regional Information Center, water-based defoamers offer environmental advantages coupled with improved performance. Another major advantage of water-based defoamers is their availability in size grades.

Asia-Pacific dominated the defoamers market in 2022 with total revenues of about $1.2 billion. This dominance is a result of the mature paper and pulp industry in the region. Asia-Pacific accounted for 49% of global paper and paperboard production globally in 2022. The region's high growth rate is also attributed to the steep growth of the agrochemicals industry, among others. According to EY analysis, the Indian agrochemicals market is expected to reach over $7.4 billion by the end of 2026, growing at a CAGR of 8.6%.

Agrochemical industries in India present immense growth opportunities. India is the 4th largest producer of agrochemicals globally and ranks 4th in terms of production of crop protection chemicals. The Indian agrochemicals market is driven by the country's growing population, which has resulted in the country's agricultural practices remaining sufficient. This has increased the use of Indian agrochemicals in agricultural activities. The industry has benefited from the Indianization of the agrochemical industry, which has boosted agrochemical product sales. Other factors influencing the Indian agrochemical industry's growth include population growth, increasing food production needs, and economic growth.
