Fermentation defoamer chemicals are an important part of many industrial fermentation processes. It is a chemical solution that decreases and obstructs the formation of foam in industrial process liquids such as in dairy products, alcoholic beverages and many others. Fermentation defoamer generally refers to a non-toxic defoamer, which is especially designed in a way to facilitate fermentation process in distilleries. It is a blend of polyalkylene glycols and fatty acid esters.
Presently, the United States fermentation defoamer market is driven by several factors. The primary factor behind the market growth is rapidly growing end user industries such as dairy, alcohol and beverage and others in the country. 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. Nevertheless, in 2020 retail sales dropped to USD100 billion owing to widespread closures of bars, restaurants, stadiums and other on-premise accounts. On the other side, the country’s well-established pharmaceutical industry and massive presence of pharma product manufacturing companies across the country is further attributed to the growth of the market.
