Global Market for Cellulose Nanofibers to 2030

Global Market for Cellulose Nanofibers to 2030”
report has been
added to’s offering.

Cellulose nanofibers (CNF) are bio-based materials with high mechanical
strength (stronger than steel), high aspect ratios, high transparency,
and high chemical resistance. They are also lightweight. As a result,
they are very attractive for application in composites and

Research has been active for a number of years and products are now on
the market, mainly in Japan. Products include adult diapers, automotive
biocomposites, thermoplastic additives. Japanese sports shoe
manufacturer Asics has utilized CNF in running shoes, incorporating CNF
from Seiko PMC.

Most major paper manufacturers, faced with reduced market demand for
paper are seeking to exploit the remarkable properties of CNFs. The
market is exploding in Japan with large paper manufacturers such as
Nippon Paper and Oji Holdings establishing multi-ton cellulose nanofiber
production facilities. Nippon Paper recently opened a new 450 ton
cellulose nanofiber production facility.Japanese chemicals manufacturers
are also developing cellulose nanofiber production. Facilities have also
been established in Europe (mainly Scandanavia), Canada and the United
