Japan is at the forefront of the global cellulose nanofibers market. The Japanese government has actively promoting these environmentally friendly advanced materials since 2014, and The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) estimates that the market will expand to 1 trillion yen ($8 billion) by 2030.

Most major Japanese paper manufacturers have established cellulose nanofiber production capabilities and have started to bring products to the market in the last 18 months. Target markets range from packaging to consumer electronics. Products on the market incorporating cellulose nanofibers include ballpoint pen inks, adult and child diapers, wet wipes, headphone diaphragms and footwear.

The market is exploding 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 in 2018.

Product samples are available for commercial trials and will find wider application in packaging and composites over the next few years. Dai Nippon Printing Co. Ltd., Tentok Paper Works, Risho Kogyo Co. Ltd., Daio Paper Corp., KRI Inc. have all recently announced new products and production initiatives. Domestic production capacity is estimated to exceed 800 tons per annum within the next year.

Report contents include:

  • Commercial activity in cellulose nanofibers in Japan. Current and planned.
  • Production facilities and capacities.
  • Target markets for cellulose nanofibers in Japan.
  • Producers and product developers including products, production processes, target markets, future plans.
  • 30 company profiles.
