- Pulp and paper
- Paints and coatings
- Oil and gas
- Water treatment
The top three segments based on the application for the global anti-foaming agents market are discussed below:
Global anti-foaming agents market for pulp and paper applications
Organosiloxane materials are generally found throughout the manufacturing process of pulp and paper, right from digestion of wood chips to finishing and recycling of papers. Anti-foaming agents are used in pulp and paper mills to minimize the defects caused due to foam formation. They avoid the formation of surface foam and entrapped air.
According to Ajay Adhikari, a lead specialty chemicals research analyst from Technavio, “Anti-foaming agents improve drainage in the paper mill. They also improve drainage in the sulfite stock, Kraft pulp stock, and the bleaching plant screen room area in the pulp mill. They also minimize paper breaking and improve paper machine runnability.”
Global anti-foaming agents market for paints and coatings applications
In 2016, the paints and coatings application accounted for 22.01% of market share in the global anti-foaming agents market. In this application, there are numerous processes in which foam formation takes place such as mixing, filtration, spraying, dissolving and various other operations such as pouring, and stirring.
“Anti-foaming agents are expected to retain their market share during the forecast period due to their reduced harmful effect on the environment. These additives have low VOC emission, negligible paint sludge residue, and are devoid of noxious odors,” says Ajay.
Global anti-foaming agents market for oil and gas applications
Anti-foaming agents are used in drilling mud to remove the air and gas trapped in water-based and oil-based mud systems. Anti-foaming agents are also used in cementing applications in oil and gas wells to remove unwanted foam.
They are effective at high temperature and a wide range of pH. Moreover, anti-foaming agents are also used in cuttings removal in air drilling, water drilling, and Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) applications.
