What is Anti-Foam Agent Market?
Anti-foam or foam control agents are thereby designed for minimizing foam production during the fermentation process. Several industries source large quantities of antifoam agents. Foam hinders industrial processes by deforming the surface coating of the products. The global anti-foam market will swell in the coming years. The different industrial uses of antifoam chemicals are likely to expand the market in the coming years. The pharmaceutical and beverage industry is largely dependent on antifoam products. Brewers survive in a highly competitive market. The competition is fierce and raw material prices are rising. Anti-foam products not only increase the productivity of the beer but also help in the development of quality products. Foam is an undesirable by-product that is created in the manufacture of various substances. Biochemical substances like protein easily curate foam. The foam causes several acute problems in a chemical by blocking the normal flow of oxygen. Antifoam agents such as silicone oils are used on a massive scale in the chemical industry to reduce foam growth in the chemicals produced. The food and pharmaceutical industries also suffer from this problem and make massive use of anti-foam agents to keep their production quality at the same level. Foam is also a serious threat to several industrial processes. They not only hinder the wall coating of the products but also impair the proper filling of the containers. Most antifoam agents are insoluble, spread quickly over the foam, and create an immediate impact. Defoamers are available in the water, silicon, and powder categories. The packaged food industry buys antifoam products extensively. Some of the most popular foods like chicken nuggets contain antifoam agents. Silicon oil is a widely used antifoam agent that prevents cooking oil from foaming. Laundry detergents also contain a lot of anti-foam agents. Antifoam agents increase the cleaning quality of the detergents. Defoamers are used extensively in waste treatment, food processing, in the wood, paint, and paper industries. Turkey red oil is a type of anti-foam agent that dominates the textile and sugar industries. Turkey red oil is also used in agriculture as an organic fertilizer.

In 2019, BASF launched a new defoamer that complies with all important regulations for contact with food for adhesives, paper coating applications, and functional packaging. The new defoamer also fulfills the most important regulations for contact with food for polymer dispersions, paper, and adhesive coatings as well as pressure-sensitive adhesives for functional packaging. and In 2020, Concentrol had launched a range of antifoam products and Surfex had introduced them. Focusing on finding new, more efficient, and greener solutions is just as important as knowing how to give them to all the professionals who need them.
Regulatory agencies such as the US FDA and the European Commission have enforced several laws regulating the composition of defoamers. The organizations have set usage limits for various components in the product formulation. Some variants contain harsh chemicals that are used in food and can cause health risks.
