Defoaming Coating Additives Market Overview:

Defoamers, is basically an anti-foaming agent which is a solvent free additive extensively used in adhesives, coatings, paintings, inks and others. It has the ability to restrict the formation of foam in the industrial liquids.   The most commonly used defoamers are insoluble oils, glycols, alcohols, silicones, stearates, and polydimethylsiloxanes. Defoaming coating additives are organic chemicals or liquid that are added to lacquers, paints and resins to prevent pin-hole formation and enhance their flow.

Market Research Analysis:

The market is highly application based. Its dependency on the end-use industry has widened over a period of time. The need for eliminating foam from the coating process across all the applications has led to the growth of these additives. It is expected that the global defoaming coating additives market will advance with higher growth rate as compared to previous years. However the current challenge for the market is the fluctuating raw material prices and emerging competition from the emerging nations.

On the basis of type, silicone-based additives drive the maximum share. The share is attributed to its properties such as high inertness, low surface tension, and solubility. This induces the demand in construction and automotive industries. The second largest market by type is driven by water-based additives. These additives are cost effective when compared to silicone-based. On the basis of application, architectural coatings accounts for the largest share. The demand for attractive architecture with high aesthetic values has driven the market for this application.
