A defoamer causes the foam bubbles to coalesce in order to reduce or completely eliminate them. The report takes into account the global defoamers market and provides in-depth analysis by three segments: type, application and geography.
Defoamers can be broadly classified into two types - silicone defoamers and non-silicone defoamers. Silicone based defoamers are polymers having silicone as backbone. It has silicone as the main chain concatenated with carbon and hydrogen molecules. Non-Silicone defoamers includeoil, ester and water bases. Defoamers are also segmented by their utility in different applications such as paper and pulp, paints & coatings, oil & gas, textiles, pharmaceuticals, detergents, lubricants, food and beverage and others.
