The Global Market for Nanocellulose to 2017
DUBLIN, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “The Global Market for
Nanocellulose to 2017 [http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/jmdhjb/the_global_market
]” report to their offering.
Despite being the most available natural polymer on earth, it is only recently that
cellulose has gained prominence as a nanostructured material, in the form of cellulose
nanocrystals (CNC) and micro/nanofibrillar cellulose (MFC/NFC). There are now a number of
producers, from SMEs to multi-national companies, and production volumes will increase to
over 300 tons per annum over the next year and over 3000 tons per annum by 2016.
Nanocellulose is being developed for applications in composites, construction materials,
porous materials, fibre web structures (e.g. paper and board), coatings, functional
surfaces and functional additives (e.g. rheological modifiers). There will be high-volume
applications in composites, textiles, paints and adhesives and niche applications in
biomedical materials. Its biodegradability is important when the current environmental,
societal and political issues regarding the development of innovative, sustainable and
