Key Market Trends

Demand For Anti-Foaming Agent In Beverage Industries

Demand for antifoaming agents is witnessed to have a rising trend owing to its properties that reduces and hinders the formation of foam in industrial process liquids as it has an affinity to the air-liquid surface and destabilizes the foam lamellas which results in the rupture of the air bubbles and breakdown of surface foam. It is mostly used by the breweries during the fermentation process, to optimize efficiency. Also, it is used by other juice processing companies. Thus, the rapid expansion of the brewery and beverage industries are making a significant impact on the value and volume of the antifoaming agents market in the forecasted period.

Asia-pacific To Witness The Fastest Growth In The Global Market

The Asia Pacific has been witnessed to have the fastest growth in the global market, owing to the increasing consumption of food & beverage products in the region.
