According to the research report titled ‘Global Water-based Defoamers Market Research Report 2020’, available with Market Study Report LLC, global water-based defoamers market generated USD 2441.2 million in 2020 and is reckoned to witness a y-o-y growth rate of 3.1% during 2021-2026. The market is expected to be worth USD 3030 million by the end of the forecast period.
Notably, water-based defoamers include waxes & oils dissolved in a water base which are used to lessen foam formation. Swift industrialization and increasing utilization of water across various industry verticals are prime factors fueling the growth of water-based defoamers market. The product is free of hydrocarbon oils, hence are not only biodegradable but also environment friendly.
Surging investments towards development of wastewater recovery infrastructure is also stimulating the industry outlook. Water-based defoamers offer efficient foam suppression over a wide range of temperatures and pH levels. They leave no residual material and are extensively used in wastewater treatment, fiberglass mat manufacturing, cooling towers and as filtration agent.
