Nanocellulose (NC) can be classified into cellulose nanocrystals (CNC), cellulose nanofiber (CNF), and bacterial nanocellulose (BNC). They are novel biomaterials with multiple industrial uses for replacing fossil derived raw materials. Desirable properties include high surface area, unique morphology, excellent mechanical properties, specific high strength and modulus, good biocompatibility, renewability, tailorable surface chemistry and good optical properties. Their use in the development of a variety of sustainable and renewable materials has grown considerably in recent years. 

The market mainly consists of CNFs at present, as alternatives to resins, synthetic thickeners, strengtheners, and plastic additives. CNF-based products have already hit the market, mainly in Japan, and are viewed as important advanced biomaterials solutions in the packaging and composites markets. CNC and BNC products are near or on market in the personal care and cosmetics sectors.
