Global Cellulose Nanofibers Market Report 2022 with Detailed Profiles of 90+ Companies

DUBLIN, January 31, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “The Global Market for Cellulose Nanofibers to 2031” report has been added to from offer.

Cellulose nanofibers (CNF), also called cellulose nanofibrils or nanofibrillated cellulose, are durable materials with high mechanical strength and stiffness (stronger than steel), high aspect ratios, high transparency, high chemical resistance and impressive rheological, optical and film-forming properties. They are also lightweight and have had a recent impact in industrial applications of biopolymers, biocomposites, and hygiene and sanitary products.

Industrial products have recently been introduced to the market in the fields of packaging, composites and thermoplastics, biomedicine and hygiene, mainly in the Japanese market. Advanced applications in paper batteries and flexible electronics are also expected once current processing challenges are overcome.

CNF production is now on an industrial scale, with many large paper manufacturers establishing multi-ton production facilities. Japanese chemical manufacturers have also launched cellulose nanofiber production capabilities. Facilities have also been established in Europe (mainly Scandinavia), Canada and the United States.
