Anti-foam market: Overview
Anti-foam or foam control agents are designed to minimize foam production during the fermentation procedure. Several industries extensively procure Anti-foaming agents. Foam hampers industrial processes by deforming the surface coating of the products. Multiple anti-foaming agents are available in global market. Global anti-foam market will swell in the years to come. The different industrial use of anti-foaming chemicals is likely to expand the market in the forthcoming years. Pharmaceuticals, beverages industry largely depends on the anti-foaming products. Brewers are surviving in a highly competitive market. Competition is high and prices of raw materials are soaring. Quality beers will only survive in this thriving market. Anti-foam products not only enhances the productivity of the beer but it also helps in developing quality products.
Foam is an unwanted by-product produced during the production of various substances. The chemical industry is constantly trying to minimize the production of foam from different biochemical materials. Biochemical substances such as protein easily curate foam. Foam creates several acute problems in a chemical by blocking the normal oxygen flow. Anti-foaming agents such silicon oils are massively used in the chemical industry to reduce the growth of foam in the produced chemicals. Food and pharmaceuticals industry also suffers from this same problem, and they massively use anti-foaming agents to keep their production quality at par.
