Defoamers are chemical additives that reduces foam formation in industrial process liquid. A silicon defoamer is a polymer with silicone backbone/s. Defoamers have three base function, which is defoaming, deaeration and anti-foam. there are two types of defoamer silicone base and non-silicone base. Silicone base defoamer can give better surface tension as compared to non-silicone base.
The major factor driving the growth of the global silicon defoamer market is wide applicability of silicon defoamer from various end use industries such as water treatment plant, food and beverage, paint and coating, etc. In addition, rising preference for waterborne coating among automobile industry to increase production and improve product quality is another factor expected to drive market growth. It is also used in pulp and paper mill industry to improve drainage and washing systems which is expected to support growth of the global silicon defoamer market.
However, high cost associated with production of silicon defoamer is a major factor hampering growth of the global market. In addition, stringent government regulations related to chemical composition of product is expected to challenge growth of the global silicon defoamer market over next few years.
The global silicon defoamer market is segmented on the basis of application and region. On the basis of region, the global silicon defoamer market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.
