Synopsis of Nanocellulose Market

The Global Nanocellulose Market is projected to grow at a moderate CAGR over the forecast period 2017-2023, reported extensively by Market Research Future (MRFR). Important factors attributing to the growth of the global market are improving living standards, increasing automotive production & sales, and expanding cosmetics market. Additionally, the demand for nanocellulose is anticipated to propel the growth over the forecast period owing to escalating oil & gas industry. Growing crude oil production across the globe is assumed to drive the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, rapid urbanization combined with rising disposable income in developing economies along with continuous expansion of the paints & coatings sector and demand for biodegradable material also fuels the market growth. Lastly, expansion of personal care industry in developed and developing economies also are deemed drive the growth of the market over the forecast period 2017-2023.

High cost of Nanocellulose production processes and procedures for effective manufacturing to obtain price–performance in the various applications poses as the largest challenge. However, nanocellulose is a renewable material that has special characteristics such as lightweight, high strength and durability. These factors also help make it popular, and in demand among the consumers, therefore this market is gaining momentum in various sectors.

Prevalent trends like increasing use of nanocellulose in pharmaceutical industry, in oil and gas industry and growing demand for green alternatives to non-renewable materials also act as an impetus for the growth of the market.

Market Segmentation

The Global Nanocellulose Market is segmented on the basis of Type, Application and Region. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into nanofibrillar cellulose (NFC), nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC), bacterial cellulose (BCC). In recent times, nanofibrillar cellulose (NFC) has gained popularity across the world due to its renewable nature, good biocompatibility and excellent physical properties that are useful for diverse applications in pharmaceutical and biomedical fields. It also possesses potential to enhance wound healing and recovery in severely burned patients. On the other hand, bacterial cellulose, due to its unique properties has been used in the food industry, the medical field, commercial and industrial products, and other technical areas.
