Defoaming Coating Additives Market size is forecast to reach $3.1 Billion by 2026, after growing at a CAGR of 7.6% during 2021-2026 due to increasing demand for protective coatings from automotive and building & construction industry. Defoaming coating additives consist of silicone, polypropylene glycol copolymers, polydimethylsiloxanes, and others are used to reduce foam formation and improve adhesion. Due to the physical appearance of defoaming coating additives (melting point < 0°C and boiling Point > 150°C), these are used as lubricants in paint inks. Furthermore, defoaming coating additives reduce the VOC emissions, improved quality, reduced cost, increased productivity, provide excellent dispersion stability, gloss enhancement, and boosted stain resistance. Thus, due to such properties, it is widely used in building & construction, automotive, and wood & furniture which is estimated to create growth for the defoaming coatings additives market.

Impact of COVID-19:

The COVID 19 pandemic has put all construction projects on hold along with residential and non-residential construction projects. Due to lockdown, the demand for defoaming coating additives has decreased. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in January 2021, private construction declined 0.5 percent, residential (-0.2 percent), health care (-4.4 percent), and office (-0.5 percent) in the United States. In 2021, all the residential and non-residential have been stopped due to which defoaming coating additives demand decreased.

Defoaming Coating Additives Market Segment Analysis – By Technology

Waterborne technology held the largest share in defoaming coatings additives market in 2020 as they help to reduce the emissions of volatile organic components (VOC), improve air quality, and provide excellent adhesion. Water-borne contains approximately 75%-90% water which is used from various end-use industries for comparison to oil-based defoamers. Polydimethylsiloxane is silicon-based defoamers for a water-based system that offers low surface tension, spreading capability, thermal stability, chemical inertness, and water insolubility. Polydimethylsiloxane provides highly efficient defoaming coatings with excellent compatibility. Hence, the growing demand for waterborne technology in the paint & coatings industry, in turn, is estimated to grow the demand for the market.

Defoaming Coating Additives Market Segment Analysis – By End-Use Industry

Automotive sector has been the primary market for defoaming coating additives market in 2020 and is growing at a CAGR of 7.8% during 2021-2026. Defoaming coatings (consists of polypropylene glycol copolymers, polydimethylsiloxanes, and others) offer weight reduction, war resistance, high inertness, reinforcement, moisture resistance, and other properties thus these are used in vehicles. Hence, for better and protective coatings, defoaming coatings are widely used in the automotive industry. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the Australian market sold 1.2 million new passenger cars, SUVs, and commercial vehicles in 2017, an increase of 0.9 % from 2016. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), the production of light commercial vehicles has increased in the APAC region by 10.2 % in 2018. Light commercial vehicle production has increased from 2,249,348 in 2018 to 2,254,153 in 2019, an increase of 0.2% in Europe. Apart from this, the Indian automotive industry is expected to reach US$ 251.4-282.8 billion by 2026. Thus, increasing vehicle production is estimated to grow the market size.

Defoaming Coating Additives Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

Asia pacific dominated the market of defoaming coating additives in 2020 with 30% due to the increasing automotive and building & construction sector in emerging & developing Asian countries. Defoaming coatings are used to minimize the carbon footprint and reduce vehicle weight. Also, these coatings are applied to the wall covering for glossiness. Thus, rapid development in that sector is estimated to grow the market scenario. According to the “India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF)”, Under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban), in India 1.12 crore houses have been sanctioned in urban areas, which is creating demand for elastomeric coatings. According to the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), 14 construction investment projects were approved worth CNY177.8 billion (US$25.2 billion), following approvals of CNY68.9 billion (US$10.1 billion) in August 2020. Apart from this, According to the International Trade Administration (ITA), the Chinese government is expected to run the production of automobiles with 35 million units by 2025. Therefore, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the Indian Government expects the automotive sector to attract US$ 8 billion to US$10 billion in local and foreign investments by 2023. Hence, the growing industries is estimated to boost the consumption of defoaming coating additives.

Defoaming Coating Additives Market Drivers

Robust Growth in Building & Construction Sector

According to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), the investment by China in real states rose to 7.0% in 2020. Furthermore, according to the Ministry of Rural Development and Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs indicate a housing shortage of about 3 crore units in rural areas and 1.2 crore units in urban areas. On the other hand, according to the National Bureau of Statistics, China's real estate market investment jumped from 15.7% in 2019 to 38.3% in January-February 2021. According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the government launched the 'Housing for All by 2022' scheme under Pradhan Mantri Awasa Yojana (PMAY) in India, which is expected to drive the residential construction at a low cost over the coming years. Hence, all factors are growing demand for defoaming coating additives.
