Defoaming Coating Additives Market Overview


The Defoaming coating additives market size is projected to be worth USD 2,161.6 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 4.91% during the forecast period (2022–2030). The market was valued at USD 1,434.2 million in 2021.


Defoaming chemicals in coatings helps break down the foam that forms and cut back on volatile organic compound emissions. It also increases productivity while decreasing costs and improving quality. Defoaming coating additives are distinguished by their superior dispersion stability, gloss improvement, and increased stain resistance. Defoaming coating additives have numerous applications outside of the manufacturing sector, including in the construction, automotive, and wood & furniture industries. During the projection period, the building & construction sector is anticipated to be the largest end-use sector for defoaming coating additives, followed by the automotive sector. The major factors driving the growth of the construction industry globally include population growth, economic growth, high investments in infrastructure development, and others.


Limited awareness and high loading levels of defoaming coating additives in the industrial process are restraining the growth of the global defoaming coating additive market. Rising living standards and proactive government initiatives to expand the textile industry are key opportunities for the global defoaming coating additive market. The trend driving the market growth is using renewable raw materials to formulate defoaming coating additives. And fluctuating raw material prices challenge the global defoaming coating additive market.


COVID-19 Impact on the Defoaming coating additives Market:


COVID-19 has impacted the sales of defoaming coating additives over the globe. The defoaming coating additives industry, which constitutes the highest share of the defoaming coating additive market, has halted globally, impacting the market. The manufacturers cannot run down their products to the application industries due to a reduction in logistics. The manufacturers are providing products to local areas. With the ease of lockdowns across the globe, companies are developing more secure and hygienic ways to deliver products. On the other hand, the suppliers are back to business, and distribution channels have re-opened. The sales & distribution channel comprises distributors, suppliers, retailers, wholesalers, and e-commerce merchants who have signed long-term agreements with the manufacturer to ensure the final product's availability at different locations as and when required.


Since the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, massive pressure has been on the defoaming coating additives distribution supply chain. Ports across several countries suffer from intense congestion, causing cargo ships to encounter substantial delays in unloading cargo and supplying products within a certain period. Defoaming coating additive occupies a small but lucrative niche of the global construction industry, a closely interlinked market that depends on supply dependability.


In 2022, the demand from the residential and non-residential sectors is increasing as the restrictions of Covid-19 are removed. The governments started investing in various projects, and the increase in demand from the non-residential sector also drove the defoaming coating additives market globally. As the restrictions are eased, the construction industry is gaining more attention, so the demand from end users is increasing globally. The Covid-19 outbreak has caused developers to explore creative ways to create more holistic and practical home models to accommodate homeowners' changing work habits. This has increased demand for housing developments with more excellent floor space and facilities, which will drive the demand for defoaming coating additives from end-users like the construction industry.


Market Dynamics


Drivers

  • Escalating Demand From The Construction & Automotive Industry


The main drivers of the construction industry's expansion include rising urbanization brought on by rising population, economic growth in developing nations, and demand for environmentally friendly infrastructure. The key growth drivers for the industry in the coming decades will be concentration in megacities, the decarbonization of the economy, and technological and digital transformations, as they will necessitate sizable investments in transportation, water, waste management, social infrastructure, renewable energies, telecommunications, and technology adaptation. A defoamer for coatings is an additive that quickly reduces foam during paint application and helps create even defect-free coatings. As a result, the growth of defoaming coating additives in the construction industry is driven by rising population, infrastructural development, and tourism growth. Also, the increasing demand for commercial spaces in developing countries due to the growth of service sectors such as IT, BFSI, and telecom is driving the growth of the construction industry, which drives the global defoaming coating additive market.  


Restraints

  • Limited Awareness And High Loading Levels Of Defoaming Coating Additive In The Industrial Process


The loading level is high in the manufacturing of defoaming coating additives because the required concentration and quantity of different defoaming additives vary according to the type of defoamer. Different types of defoaming coating additives are used to eliminate or restrict the foam formed in the coatings, which are applied in various industries like automotive, construction, and others. The loading level of different types of defoaming coating additives varies according to the type. A corporation can increase its cash flow and cut costs by drastically decreasing waste and excess physical stocks that can arise from a lack of level loading. Consider the fact that unfinished work won't result in any revenue for the manufacturer. When there is too much inventory, problems like equipment breakdowns or unequal output levels on the floor can go undetected. One of the factors limiting the market's growth and impacting the production costs of the defoaming coating additives is the limited awareness about loading levels or production levelling. Therefore, the growth of defoaming coating additives might be hindered by high loading levels and limited awareness.




  • Opportunity




    • Rising Living Standards And Proactive Government Initiatives To Expand The Textile Industry






The demand for goods and services will increase along with the standard of living. Because of shifting consumer preferences and behavior, the textile sector will expand globally. The elements that affect the growth of the textile industry include the shifting consumer desires for various brands and types of fashionable clothes. Defoaming coating additives market participants have an opportunity due to the expansion of the textile industry.


Desizing (the removal of the size material from warp threads after weaving), bleaching, dyeing, printing, washing, scouring, and other processes are used in the production of textiles. Numerous of these procedures result in certain unwanted foams, which reduce production. To boost productivity, several defoaming coating additives are utilized in the textile industry to restrict or suppress foam produced during various operations. 


Various government initiatives in the textile industry will provide an opportunity for global defoaming coatings market players.


Challenges

  • Fluctuating Raw Material Prices


Raw materials used in the manufacturing of defoaming coating additive includes additives, carrier oils, and others (surfactants). The additives vary according to the type. Silicone oil (dimethylpolysiloxanes and modified polysiloxanes), polymer, mineral oil, vegetable oil, water, and others are used in defoaming coatings additives. Different emulsifiers are also used to ensure efficient dispersion of the particles in the mineral oil. Raw material availability depends upon various factors such as geological aspects, political issues, and others. Untimely fluctuations in raw material prices result from a combined or single factor, including the supply-demand gap, global and regional economic position, commodity markets, and stockpiles. A surplus of raw materials availability leads to excess supply than demand and price fall. When a situation like this occurs, the availability of raw materials is reduced, resulting in a price hike. The availability of suppliers and demand from the manufacturer of defoaming coating additives both impact the price of the raw materials. The client has more options to choose from on a price basis as there are more manufacturers of raw materials. The cost of raw materials is also impacted by the disruption caused by COVID-19 in the global supply chain.
