London, Mar 16, 2018: Increasing focus on wastewater treatment in most of the geographic regions, and wider applications in end-user industries such as nuclear, agriculture, and F&B is driving the growth in the global defoamers market. The advent of polymer-based defoamers, especially silicone-based defoamers, is providing value growth for the market as they are priced higher compared with water-based or powder defoamers.

“The market is observing the high adoption of defoamers based on polymers such as silicone, polyethylene glycol, and polypropylene glycol. These defoamers are considered heavy-duty and find applications in demanding foam-control situations in crude oil refining. Polymer-based defoamers are usually available as oil-based or water-based solutions and emulsions.” – Bhuvaneshwari Udayakumar, chemicals procurement research specialist at SpendEdge.
The buyers need to understand the optimum use of defoamer required for their processes to efficiently manage the spend on the category. Overuse of defoamers leads to material wastage, while underutilizing leads to lack of volume reduction of the foam. As a result, buyers face procurement challenge in making optimum use of defoamers.
