Market Definition and Introduction

Defoaming coating additives are primary, organic chemical constituents or low surface tension liquids which are added to resins, paints and lacquers to augment their flow characteristics and help avoid the formation of a pin hole. During handling and production of industrial liquids, absorption of air can cause large bubble marks to flow in a non-ideal fashion and produce foam in the fluid which leads to non-optimal filling of production vessels. This creates problems in the filling line. The addition of defoaming coating additives nullifies the foam created, thereby mitigating the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are unfriendly to the environment. Defoaming coating additives also enhance the quality of coatings, reduce coating cost and induce higher productivity. The main features provided by defoaming coating additives to coating products are superior dispersion stability, increased glossiness of coating products and higher resistance to stains. Defoaming coating additives find multiple applications across a wide range of sectors, such as construction, industrial, automotive, wood & furniture and other sectors. In the automotive sector, defoaming coating additives induce weight reduction, resistance to wear and tear and reinforcement of automotive parts, thereby contributing to considerable fuel savings during automobile usage.

Considering these important aspects of applications of defoaming coating additives, the study of the defoaming coating additives market becomes an important read.

Key Trends and Drivers

There has been considerable growth in the defoaming coating additives market at a global level in recent times. This has been aided by the rapid industrialization activity. Recent trends indicate the introduction and implementation of stringent regulations and sustainability mandates for environmental safety, which have been heavily influencing the product characteristics and composition of defoaming coating additives. Besides, there has also been rising demand for clean formulations for decorative and coating requirements, which in turn, has been contributing to the growth of the global defoaming coating additives market. Also, with specific demand for low volatile organic compound (VOC) content in architectural coating types, there have been market developments in the area of architectural coatings as well, which have been influencing the growth of the defoaming coating additives market. The demand for water-based defoaming coating additives is increasing due to their cost-effectiveness. These coatings display high amounts of water in the final product even when the final composition changes according to end use.

A recent trend has been preferential use of water-based defoaming coating additives vis-à-vis solvent-based defoaming coating additives. Besides, the construction sector is driven by the significant demand rise for residential spaces in developing economies along with a demand rise for commercial spaces. Similarly, these economies, with their rising standards for living, have also been driving the automotive sector. Hence, there has been increasing demand for defoaming coating additives from the construction & automotive sectors. This has been proving to be a major driving factor for the defoaming coating additives market.

However, a potential rise in prices of raw materials used in defoaming coating additives could adversely affect their market growth, at least in the short term. Besides, in some cases, defoaming coating additives have been found to be incompatible with the medium to be defoamed. These factors could prove to be a restraint for the global defoaming coating additives market growth, to some extent.

Examples of some of the market participants operating in the defoaming coating additives market are as follows:

  • BYK Additives & Instruments
  • Ashland Inc.
  • Evonik Industries AG
