A fermentation defoamer is a chemical agent that minimizes and hinders the creation of foam in industrial process liquids. Fermentation defoamers reduces existing foam and prevent the formation of further foam. Commonly used anti-foaming agents are insoluble oils, silicones, water-based defoamers and others. Generally, fermentation defoamer is insoluble in the foaming medium and has surface active properties. An important feature of a fermentation defoamer product is a low viscosity and a facility to spread rapidly on foamy surfaces.
The global fermentation defoamer market has been seeing tremendous growth from the past few years. Primary growth factors such as increasing demand for food & beverage products across the world, increased demand for biofuels and rapid growth in the pharmaceutical industry specially in developing countries are attributed to the growth of the global fermentation defoamer market. Besides, increasing use of fermentation defoamer in wide range of application in the pharmaceutical industry during the production of bacterial vaccines, steroids, antibiotics, gene therapy vectors, and therapeutic proteins is further contributing to the market growth.
The exclusive COVID 19 impact analysis report by Axiom MRC provides a 360 degree analysis of micro and macro-economic factors on the fermentation defoamer market. In addition, complete analysis of changes on fermentation defoamer market expenditure, economic and international policies on supply and demand side. The report also studies the impact of pandemic on global economies, international trade, business investments, GDP and marketing strategies of key players present in the market. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the global fermentation defoamer market and defoamer manufacturers on a slight negative level in the early pandemic period. This is owing to the decreased demand for end use products and decreased production of food and beverage, dairy and alcoholic beverage products during pandemic period as many manufacturing and processing facilities were closed.
The study analyses global fermentation defoamer market based on product, end user and geography.
Major products such as silicone-based, oil-based and other fermentation defoamer are analyzed in the global fermentation defoamer market. The silicone-based product dominated the global fermentation defoamer market in 2021 and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. Silicone-based defoamer are the most cost-effective and efficient choices for controlling and preventing foam. An increasing use of silicone-based defoamer in application such as for the processing of dairy products, fruits, beverages, soups, and meat derivatives is attributed to the growth of the market.
Major end users of the global fermentation defoamer market are dairy, alcoholic beverages, food products, pharmaceutical, chemical, biofuel, and others. The dairy segment dominated the global fermentation defoamer market, by end user. Surge in the use of fermentation defoamers in dairy products such as food flavors & preservatives, butter & cheese, coffee, bread, etc is contributed to the growth of the dairy end user segment. In addition, the alcoholic beverages segment holds second position in fermentation defoamer market. An extensive use of the fermentation defoamer in the production of alcoholic beverages such as wine, whiskey, beer, and other distilled spirits is making more demand for such defoamer in the alcoholic beverages segment.
Geographically, the study is comprised of the key countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. North America held the largest market share of global fermentation defoamer market and is likely to dominate the market over the estimated time frame. The growing demand for fermentation defoamers in food and beverage processing industry, and increasing production and sales of processed foods, and beverages are accredited to the market growth in the region. In addition, increasing production as well as consumption alcoholic beverages such as beer in the countries such as the US and Canada is expanding the market growth. For instance, National Beer Wholesalers Association, in 2019, the U.S. beer industry sold approximately USD 120 billion in beer and malt-based beverages to U.S. consumers through beer retail establishments.
The major key players of market includes Dow Corning (Michigan), Momentive Performance Materials (New York), Wacker Chemie AG (Germany), Shin-Etsu Chemical Company (Japan), Accepta (England), PennWhite Ltd.

January 2021: The Momentive Performance Materials, Inc. announced acquisition of KCC corporation’s silicones business which further strengthening its global capabilities in advanced silicones. The Acquisition will move the capabilities of KCC’s silicones business from KCC corporation combined capabilities and expertise in advanced silicones.
January 2018: Hydrite Chemical Co. acquired Organic Defoamer Group (ODG). ODG is a leading provider of antifoams, defoamers and other speciality products located in Jackson, Wyoming and it serves various industries including food, sugar, grain processing, fermentation, mining & water treatment. Acquisition helps the Hydrite Chemical Co to enhance its customer base these areas.
The study analyses global fermentation defoamer market based on product, end user, and geography. Major products such as silicone-based, oil-based and other fermentation defoamer are analyzed in the global fermentation defoamer market. The silicone-based segment is likely to dominate the market over the forecast period. Increased adoption of silicone-based fermentation defoamer in various endues industries owing to its several benefits is attributed to the market growth. Major end users of the global fermentation defoamer market are dairy, alcoholic beverages, food products, pharmaceutical, chemical, biofuel, and others. The dairy segment is likely to register fastest growth in years to come owing to the growing adoption of fermentation defoamer in dairy industry to produce products such as bread, butter, cheese and many others. Geographically, the study is comprised of the key countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World.
