Global Nanocellulose Market to Reach 530.0 million by 2020, Growing at CAGR of 30.0% by 2020

Nanocellulose is extracted from wood pulp or plant cellulose. Nanocellulose is nothing but consequent nano-fibrils. These nano-fibrils are of different shapes such as ribbon-like, thread-shaped or short rod-shaped. The nanocellulose involves mechanical as well chemical treatment process. This material is highly structural. It poses unique properties of high tensile strength, excellent compatibility and biodegradable. Due to this scalability, it is highly employed in several applications and further expected to expand with a remarkable CAGR in near future.

Government penetration coupled with large investment for nanocellulose drives the demand for nanocellulose. Another factor that contributes to the splendid growth of nanocellulose market is the ability and structure of nanocellulose. It possesses outstanding structural forces and controls the humidity and monitors the wear and tear factors to protect the products. Thus, it is highly beneficial and used on a large scale for end applications. However, the technical and economic crisis leads the high cost productivity. Hence, this factor is expected to impede the growth of nanocellulose.

Based on products, nano-crystalline cellulose,nano-fibrillated cellulose and bacterial nanocellulose are end products for nanocellulose market. For the entire volume consumption share, nano-fibrillated cellulose remained as one of the largest segment that accounted more than 45% share of the market in 2015. In addition, nano-crystalline cellulose segment follows nano-fibrillated cellulose. Nano-crystalline cellulose is mostly used for packaging industry that exhibits its greatest demand. Moreover, the bacterial cellulose also accounts as one of the fastest growing segment owing to robust demand from biomedical, filter membranes, biotech devices and food industry.

The key end applications for the nanocellulose market have been segmented as composites, oil & gas, paper processing and paints & coatings. The dominating application segment for the market of nanocellulose was composites. It accounts over 30% share of the entire volume consumption in 2015. Additionally, this application segment is further expected to rule over the market due to the characteristics it offers such high tensile and biocompatibility. Composite segment was followed by paper processing in the same year. Moreover, the oil and gas application is also projected to have growing demand owing to availability in form of rheological modifier and emulsion stabilizer over the years to come.

With over 30% shares in total volume consumption, nanocellulose market was dominated by North America in 2015. This region is expected to be the fastest-growing market in near future. The second largest share of the market for nanocellulosematerial was accounted by Europe in the same year. Moreover, nanocellulose market in Asia Pacific is likely to witness slow growth during the forecast period due to low demand from end-user industries.
