Global Nanocellulose Market Report 2022: Profiles of Over 120 Cellulose Nanofibers, Cellulose Nanocrystals and Bacterial Nanocellulose Companies

DUBLIN, February 11, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Global Nanocellulose Market 2022” report has been added to from offer.

The global nanocellulose market has accelerated in recent years, with producers in Japan and, to a lesser extent, North America and Europe bringing products to market. The development of these remarkable materials has forced the major paper and pulp producers to direct their traditional activity towards advanced biorefineries, which have met with initial success and led to increases in production capacity.

Three types of NC are commercially available: cellulose nanocrystals (CNC), cellulose nanofibers (CNF) and bacterial nanocelluloses (BNC). Besides being produced in different ways, these three types also vary in their physico-chemical properties, from size to crystallinity. The most commercially produced NC is CNF, which is produced on a large scale in Japan and in pilot scale

These bio-based materials are abundant, renewable, and inexpensive, yet they are extremely strong, durable, lightweight, non-toxic, and cost less than other advanced materials and nanomaterials. Used as a materials additive and in composites, nanocellulose will help move away from petroleum-based plastics and products in favor of sustainable, bio-based alternatives.

Nanocellulose (NC) can be derived from a multitude of abundant cellulosic biomass sources such as wood pulp, agricultural crops, organic wastes, as well as bacteria. Its properties, including high tensile strength, biocompatibility and high aspect ratio, make it attractive to a wide range of markets, from medical to construction to aerospace. Since nanocellulose is derived from renewable materials, its potential to replace petroleum-derived materials in films, coatings, composites and packaging is particularly exciting in the wake of current political and societal movements towards reducing plastic consumption.

Most of the NCs being developed for commercial use come in the form of CNFs. Currently, many NC-based applications are at an early stage, with some applications already commercially available, mainly in Japan.
