Defoamers which are also referred as an antifoaming agent are chemical additives used to curtail the formation of foam during various industrial procedures. Defoamers are not soluble in foaming medium and exhibit excellent surface-active properties. These properties facilitate foams to be easily spread over the foaming surface. Defoamers with various types of oils and waxes distributed in its are called as water based defoamers. Typically, the water based defoamers include oils such as mineral oils or vegetable oils. On the other hand waxes dispersed in water based defoamers include, fatty acid soaps, esters and long-chain fatty alcohol.
Key Trends in Global Water-based Defoamers Market
Increasing Demand for Water-based Defoamers in Pulp & Paper Applications
Defoamers are poised to plate important role in pulp and paper mills, as these helps lower the problem of foam. Defoamers also hamper the formation of foam. Paper mills face different issues on the account of formation of foam at different stages of production process. Defoamers are effective surface acting agents and help to efficiently curtain foam generation. Defoaming is vary essential in pulp and paper mills. Furthermore, the effectiveness of pump gets hampered. Defoamers enhance flow in sulfite stock and kraft pulp stock in the pulp mill. Manufacturers can achieve reduction in paper breaking, thus improving paper machine functionality with the help of defoamers. Defoamers facilitate lower steam consumption. This helps save energy and costs.
Impact of COVID 19 on Global Water-based Defoamers Market
COVID 19 has left an unparalleled impact on growth of global Water-based Defoamers industry. The global Water-based Defoamers has witnessed very severe setback like never before. The demand for Water-based Defoamers is expected to be plunged by almost 20% in 2020, in terms of both volume as well as revenue. However, with the beginning of unlock process across the world and anticipation of COVID 19 vaccine to be launched during first half of 2020 is expected to bring recovery in demand for Water-based Defoamers.
