The global antifoaming agent market is expected to register a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

Because its final consumers are industries, Covid had little influence on antifoaming agents. Food businesses and many others were not shut down due to the pandemic's fundamental necessities. The commencement of the coronavirus outbreak, however, hampered sales hopes.

Antifoaming agents are extensively utilized during the production of paper & pulp. These products help in reducing the generation of foam quantity during paper & pulp making. Growing demand for paper & pulp, primarily in the packaging sector, will augment the antifoaming market growth in the next few years. Increasing paper-based product usage in the flexible packaging industry is driving market growth.

The factors driving the global market include extensive expansion in the application industries such as the pharmaceutical and packaged food industries and the booming potential in the agricultural sector, particularly in developing economies. Increasing awareness, regulatory guidelines, and environmental concerns are expected to drive the antifoaming market during the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Increasing demand for Anti-foaming agents in Beverage Industry

Demand for antifoaming agents is witnessed to have a rising trend owing to its properties that reduces and hinders the formation of foam in industrial process liquids as it has an affinity to the air-liquid surface and destabilizes the foam lamellas, which results in the rupture of the air bubbles and breakdown of surface foam. The anti-foaming agent is a chemical additive that reduces and hinders foam formation in the industrial processing of various liquids and beverages. Breweries mainly use it during the fermentation process to optimize efficiency. Also, it is used by other juice processing companies. Thus, the rapid expansion of the brewery and beverage industries is significantly impacting the value and volume of the antifoaming agents market in the forecasted period. Therefore, in 2021 Cambridge Commodities announced the launch of its, Librifoam, a silicone anti-foaming agent designed for use across the sports nutrition, health & wellbeing, and food & beverage industries.

Asia-pacific To Witness The Fastest Growth In The Global Market

The Asia Pacific has witnessed the fastest growth in the global market, owing to the increasing consumption of food & beverage products in the region. China and India will primarily drive the growing demand for antifoaming agents as industries such as the beverage industry, pharmaceuticals, and others are poised to undergo an unprecedented expansion rate. Also, regional players' expansion and frequent product launch further fuel the regional market for an antifoaming agent. For Instance, in 2021, BRB International (BRB), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Petronas Chemicals Group Berhad (PCG), officially opened a new blending facility in Gebeng, Kuantan. The facility would serve three product portfolios: silicone gum blend, silicone antifoam, and silicone emulsion for the Asia Pacific and Middle East African regions.

Competitive Landscape

The global market for antifoaming agents is highly fragmented, owing to the presence of large regional and domestic players in different countries such as Levaco Chemicals, Jiangsu Jiahua Advanced Materials Technology Co. Ltd., Evonik Industries, BASF, ZILIBON CHEMICAL, PennWhite, Air Products, Sanco Industries Inc., Kemira Oyj, Shin-Etsu Chemical Company, Elementis Plc, Ashland Inc. Emphasis is given on the merger, expansion, acquisition, and partnership of the companies along with new product development as strategic approaches adopted by the leading companies to boost their brand presence among consumers.
