Nanocellulose is a novel biomaterial with multiple industrial uses for replacing fossil derived raw materials. The market mainly consists of cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs) production at present as alternatives to resins, synthetic thickeners, strengtheners, and plastics. Cellulose nanofiber products have already hit the market, especially in Japan, and are viewed as advanced materials solutions packaging and composites sectors.

Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are a promising future investment opportunity. Most companies are focusing on high volume production for composites, packaging and paper industries. However, many opportunities exist in electronics, 3D printing, textiles and medicine.

Current production capacity far exceeds the market demand at present, but this is likely to change as prices drop in the next few years, and there is less distance to fall than with other nanomaterials as cellulose nanofibers are broadly cost competitive (<$50/kg). Producers have already begun to produce additives that are competitive with conventional polymer composites (e.g. carbon fibers).

This report examines:

  • Advantages and shortcomings of nanocellulose as a technology component.
  • Pricing landscape for nanocellulose, by types and producers.
  • Production volumes by nanocellulose producer.
  • Provides a map of the current competitive landscape by market.
  • Market impediments for nanocellulose by target market.
  • Profiles all the major players in nanocellulose production.
  • Profiles all the major application developers including current and intended products.
