Global Market for Cellulose Nanofibers 2017 – Updated Forecasts to 2027 – Research and Markets

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "The Global Market for Cellulose Nanofibers" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Most major paper manufacturers, faced with reduced market demand for paper are seeking to exploit the remarkable properties of cellulose nanofibers.

The market is growing fast in Japan with large paper manufacturers such as Nippon Paper and Oji Holdings establishing multi-ton cellulose nanofiber production facilities. Asahi Kasei, Japan's leading chemicals manufacturer recently announced plans for cellulose nanofiber production, with trial production starting next year.

Facilities have also been established in Europe (mainly Scandanavia), Canada and the United States. Product are available for commercial trials and will find wider application in packaging and composites over the next few years.

The global nanocellulose market comprises:

  • Micro/nanofibrillar cellulose, cellulose nanofibers (MFC/NFC/CNF).
  • Nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC/CNC) and
  • Bacterial cellulose (BC)
