The global nanocellulose market size reached US$ 480.5 Million in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 1,476.9 Million by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 19.60% during 2023-2028. Growing product demand in numerous end-use industries, stringent regulations levied by government of several countries banning non-biodegradable packaging, and increasing usage of nanocellulose as a suitable ingredient in manufacturing healthcare products represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Nanocellulose is a type of nanostructured cellulose material that has unique physical and chemical properties which makes it suitable for a wide range of industrial applications. The material is derived from the refining of cellulose fibers and results in nanoscale materials with a high strength-to-weight ratio and remarkable thermal and mechanical stability. Nanocellulose can be sourced from natural sources such as wood, plants, bacteria, or algae. The separation process involves the use of high-pressure homogenizers to isolate nanosized fibrils or acid hydrolysis to produce hard nanoparticles. It is characterized by properties such as high tensile strength, biocompatibility, and stiffness as well as high viscosity. Nanocellulose is biodegradable and is produced from renewable resources and has a lower environmental impact compared to traditional materials. The versatility of nanocellulose makes it suitable for various applications across a wide range of end-use industries.
Nanocellulose Market Trends:
The growing product demand in numerous end-use industries, such as paper and packaging, healthcare, and cosmetics, is a significant factor driving the market. This can be attributed to the escalating demand for sustainable and environmentally friendly materials and the shifting preference toward bio-based goods. In line with this, stringent regulations levied by the government of several countries banning non-biodegradable packaging, particularly for food and beverages, are propelling the demand for durable and lightweight packaging material, which, in turn, is driving the market. Moreover, the rapid product utilization in sheets for windows and electrical displays is creating lucrative growth opportunities in the market. Besides this, the growing adoption of nanocellulose-based sensors to monitor bridges and other structures to measure their degrees of stress is also impacting the market positively. The market is further fueled by the increasing usage of nanocellulose as a suitable ingredient in manufacturing wound dressings and sanitary napkins due to its non-toxicity and high adsorption capacity. Apart from this, continual technological advancements in the manufacturing of nanocellulose with increased paper machine efficiency and better filler content are creating a positive market outlook. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include rapid industrialization, growing product usage in construction activities, rising awareness regarding the adverse effects of using singular-use plastic packages, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities.
