The Global Cellulose NanoFibers Market is expected to grow at a CAGR during the forecasting period (2020-2027).
Cellulose nanofibers is made from wood-fiber (pulp) that has been extracted to the nano level of several hundredths of a micron and smaller, and it is the world’s most advanced biomass material. Since the material is derived from plant fibers, it created a low environment in its production and its disposal. The properties of cellulose Nanofibers includes lightweight, has high elastic modulus as high as high-strength aramid fiber, similar thermal expansion as glass, and presents high barrier properties with oxygen and other gases. Due to the presence of characteristic properties and morphology it is widely used in filter materials, high gas barrier packaging material, medicines, cosmetics, electronic devices, and others. The Cellulose Nanofibers are manufactured through various mechanical processes it includes high-pressure homogenization, micro fluidization, refining or grinding. Due to the drawbacks associated with the mechanical process such as high energy demand various chemical process are being adopted by the various producers such as cationization, hydrolysis, TEMPO-mediated oxidization, acetylation, and sialylation.
Increase in usage of the cellulose nanofibers by end users in filters, food packaging, and healthcare, and research initiatives for the development of new carbon nanofibers by prominent players in different industries for different applications are driving the cellulose nanofibers market during the forecast period. Increase in penetration of cellulose nanofibers into various sectors due to its major advantages such as light weight and high strength, and eco-friendly in nature is additionally contributing to the growth of global cellulose nanofibers market during the forecast period.
According to NIKKEI ASIAN REVIEW in May 2017, electronics maker Panasonic is conducting research for using the fiber to make refrigerators and washing machines.
The carbon nanofibers could emerge as a viable alternative for steel in the long term though it can expect significant competition from materials that are made from carbon-based materials. According to researchers, the carbon nanofibers are five times as light and can be five times as strong as steel. With the rapid development in electric cars, the key players in the industry are looking at an alternative for steel, due to its added advantages carbon nanofibers can be adopted majorly by automotive and aircraft industry in the future.
Major factors hindering the global cellulose nanofibers market during the forecast period due to the high cost compared with conventional materials.
Global cellulose nanofibers market is segmented by product type and Application. Product type includes tempo-cellulose nanofibers, carboxymethyl-cellulose nanofibers, and others, and by the application, it includes nanocomposites, filters, food packaging, cosmetics, electronic devices, healthcare, and others.
Food packaging is dominating the global cellulose nanofibers market during the forecast period owing to advantages associated with the materials it includes replacements for petroleum-based, glass, metal, and wax-coated products, environmentally friendly nature which allows the food to be fresh for a longer duration. It improves quality and safety during the transportation of the food during traveling.
Cellulose nanofibers has the physical properties similar to the PET and also a potential replacement for food packaging and conservation as it provides protection from carrier substances such as anti-oxidants and antimicrobial.
The global cellulose nanofibers market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa.
Asia Pacific dominates the global cellulose nanofibers market during the forecast period due to the presence of key players and paper manufacturers the major contributor for the production of CNF, the presence of CNF related commercial products. Increase in research initiatives by research institutes for the development of novel technology in the field of cellulose nanofibers that can be used in the automotive industry is additionally contributing to the growth of Asia-Pacific cellulose nanofibers market.
In Japan, the cellulose Nanofibers are increasingly used in consumer goods, including disposable diaper, pens, speakers, and toilet cleaners.
North America is expected to gain rapid growth during the forecast period owing to the rise in government initiatives for the adoption of renewable resources and an increase in usage of CNF in various applications.
According to the document the technology roadmap for plant/crop-based renewable resources 2020 by U.S Department of Energy, a goal has been set that at least 10% of basic chemical building blocks will arise from plant-derived renewables by 2020 a further increase to 50% by 2050.
New product launched associated with the novel technology, plant expansion to cater to the regional market demand and new product development are the key strategies adopted by the prominent players in the global cellulose nanofibers market.
In July 2018, Rengo Co Ltd initiated the development of new cellulose nanofiber (Xanthated Cellulose Nanofibers) through the application of cellophane technology
In September 2017, Nippon Paper Industries launched a cellulose nanofiber mass production facility for food and cosmetics at the Gotsu Mill with an annual production capacity of more than 30 tons and manufacturers the carboxymethylated CNF.
In April 2015, Oji Holdings Corporation and Nikko Chemicals collaborated on the development of Cellulose Nanofibers for cosmetic applications.
Major market players in the cellulose Nanofibers market are GEA Group, Nippon Paper Group, Oji Holdings, Cellucomp, Johnson Healthtech, Asahi Kasei, Tokushu Tokai Paper Co Ltd, Rettenmaier, Akzonobel, and Daio Paper.
