Nanocrystalline Cellulose Market - Overview

Nanocrystalline cellulose are extracted from woody biomass and processed into solid flake, liquid, or gel forms. It is extensively employed in various end-user industries such as composites manufacturing, paper processing, food & beverage, paints & coatings, medical & pharmaceutical, personal care, and others which include oil & gas, textiles, and cement due to its superior properties such as high strength, electro-magnetic response, and  biodegradability. The global nanocrystalline cellulose market is projected to expand at a substantial pace due to rise in demand for renewable and biodegradable natural materials. Manufacturers are increasingly utilizing nanocrystalline cellulose due to its high strength-to-weight ratio.

Continuous technological innovation in material science and nanotechnology, advancements in the personal care industry, and focus on biodegradable food packaging are fuelling the demand for nanocrystalline cellulose. Nanocrystalline cellulose can alter characteristics of a material by changing its permeability, strength, flexibility, and optical properties. Use of nanocrystalline cellulose improves tensile strength, stiffness, and surface smoothness. Optical films incorporated with nanocrystalline cellulose are well suited for the use in specialty packaging, biosensors, and security devices. Nanocrystalline cellulose is derived from cellulose, which is found in plants and trees. Nanocrystalline cellulose offers several advantages such as reduced weight, high surface area, high strength, stiffness, chemical reactivity, non-toxicity, and biodegradability. Nanocrystalline cellulose act as reinforcement agents and exhibit superior tensile strength in polymer composite materials. Unique optical, electrical, and magnetic properties of nanocrystalline cellulose make it suitable for a wide range of applications. Nanocrystalline cellulose is utilized in several applications such as biomedical, bioimaging, nanocomposite, gas barrier films, and optically transparent functional materials. Manufacturers are increasingly producing nanocrystalline cellulose-based products, as nanocrystalline cellulose provides high stiffness and strength. Furthermore, advancements in the ultra-thin technology is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities in the nanocrystalline cellulose market.

Rise in demand for green materials in developed regions is driving the nanocrystalline cellulose market. Implementation of stringent environmental regulations propel the nanocrystalline cellulose market in developed regions. Manufacturers strive to produce green nanocrystalline products by collaborating with companies that produce forest products. Countries such as the U.S., Canada, Sweden, Australia, and Japan have been investing considerably in research and development activities to promote the production of nanocrystalline cellulose on pilot and commercial scales in the last few years.
