Market Overview

The global food anti-foaming agents market size was valued at USD 6.13 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 7.54 billion by 2026, with a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period, 2019–2026.

Food anti-foaming agents or defoamers are chemical additives used as ingredients in food or industrial processes to reduce and prevent foam formation or effervescence. The report on the global food anti-foaming agents market aims to identify emerging trends and opportunities in the global market with a detailed analysis of qualitative as well as quantitative aspects. Foam is an unwanted by-product produced during food production and processing; anti-foaming agents are used to increase process efficiency and overcome food spoilage.

Industrial applications of anti-foaming agents have been steadily expanding with the increasing demand for bakery & confectionery, dairy & frozen and other food products. Anti-foaming agents are also widely used in breweries during the fermentation process, to optimize efficiency. According to the Brewers Association, volume sales for craft beer, imported beer, and exported craft beer in the U.S. was up by 5.0%, 3.2%, and 3.6% respectively in 2017 as compared to 2016. Chemical additives used as anti-foaming agents produce low VOC emissions and thus, growing environmental concerns and a favourable regulatory scenario are some of the other factors supporting market growth.

On the other hand, lack of awareness in several industries regarding the use and benefits of anti-foaming agents is anticipated to restrain market growth. Some of the other factors that may deter market growth include negative marketing of food anti-foaming agents and low adoption rate among some food & beverage industries.

The food anti-foaming agents market is anticipated to grow in coming years with the expansion of the beverage, pharmaceutical, and agriculture sectors.
