Anti-foam market: Overview
Anti-foam or foam control agents are designed to minimise foam production during the fermentation procedure. Several industries extensively procure Anti-foaming agents. Foam hampers industrial processes by deforming the surface coating of the products. Multiple anti-foaming agents are available in global market. Global anti-foam market will swell in the years to come. The different industrial use of anti-foaming chemicals is likely to expand the market in the forthcoming years. Pharmaceuticals, beverages industry largely depends on the anti-foaming products. Brewers are surviving in a highly competitive market. Competition is high and prices of raw materials are soaring. Quality beers will only survive in this thriving market. Anti-foam products not only enhances the productivity of the beer but it also helps in developing quality products.
Foam is an unwanted by-product produced during the production of various substances. The chemical industry is constantly trying to minimise the production of foam from different biochemical materials. Biochemical substances such as protein easily curate foam. Foam creates several acute problems in a chemical by blocking the normal oxygen flow. Anti-foaming agents such silicon oils are massively used in the chemical industry to reduce the growth of foam in the produced chemicals. Food and pharmaceuticals industry also suffers from this same problem, and they massively use anti-foaming agents to keep their production quality at par.
Foam is also a serious threat for several industrial procedures. They not only hamper the wall coating of the products, but they also affect the proper filling of containers. Most of the anti-foaming agents are insoluble, and they spread rapidly over the foam and creates an instant impact. Defoamers are available in water based, silicon based, and powder based categories. The packaged food industry extensively purchases the anti-foaming agents. Some of the favourite food items such as chicken nuggets contain anti-foaming agents. Silicon oil is a widely used anti-foaming agent which restricts foaming produced from cooking oil. Detergents also have a lot of antifoaming materials in them. Anti-foaming escalates the cleaning quality of the washing products. Defoamers are elaborately used in waste treatment, processing of food products, wood, paint and paper industry. Turkey red oil is a type of anti-foaming agent which dominates the textile and sugar industry. Turkey red oil is also used as organic manure in agriculture.
Anti-foam market: Drivers
The applications of anti-foam agents are extensive and varied. The demand is rising with time. The antifoam market will grow and shine in the coming few years. Staggering expansion of the pharmaceuticals industry, packaged food industry, textile industry will drive the overall development of the antifoam markets spread across the globe. To compliment this soaring demand, several new players are foraying in the antifoam production market. Funds are pumped to develop new and advanced antifoam production facilities.
The boom in the agriculture in some of the developing economies spread across the APEJ region will expedite the expansion of the antifoam market globally. Some of the world’s best-known brewers use antifoam agents in their products to keep the quality of the goods intact. Thus the rapid expansion of the brewery and beverages industry will impact the value and volume of the antifoam market in the forthcoming years. These elements will not only change the climate of the antifoam market, but it will also impact the future and present market strategies of the companies operating in the antifoam market.
Anti-foam market: Restraints
A large chunk of the global population is avoiding packaged foods and beverages. This reverse trend will impact the growth of the antifoam market. Many industries still avert the use of antifoam products, as they are completely unaware of its existence. Minimal awareness about this chemical will create a hindrance in the development of the antifoam market.
Anti-foam market: Key Regions
North America and Europe has been a cradle for of several industries. These regions will play a critical role in the all-round development of the antifoam market. Maximum demand from these regions will keep the antifoam market afloat globally. Investors will invest massively in APEJ and MEA regions as these regions are emerging rapidly. These regions will shape the destiny of the antifoam market in the years to come.
Anti-foam market: Key Players
There are multiple antifoam manufacturers present in the global market. HIMEDIA, ECOLAB, ELKAY CHEMICALS, K.K. Chempro India Pvt. Ltd. TRANS-CHEMCO, INC, COVENTYA, are some of the many companies operating in the global antifoam market.
