Furthermore, the use of defoamers as a cleaning agent in households has also given an impetus to market growth.
Pharmaceutical Industry as Key End-User
Although foaming plays an important role in the cleaning action of soap bars and detergents, excessive foaming can result in wastage of soap. Therefore, small quantity of defoamer is used in soaps bars, washing liquids, and shampoos. Excessive foaming can interrupt with smooth execution of several industrial processes. The pharmaceutical industry has especially emerged a sound consumer within the global defoamers market. Therefore, the total volume of revenues in the global defoamers market is set to grow at an unprecedented pace in the years to follow. Other than this, manufacturing of medical drugs and ointments also involves the use of defoamers. The continual growth of the pharmaceutical industry is expected to drive sales within the global defoamers market.
