Nanocellulose Market size is projected to exceed USD 3.3 billion by 2032, as per a recent research report announced by Global Market Insights Inc.
Rising demand for sustainable products across various end-user industries will drive the development of nanocellulose-based materials. Several manufacturers and suppliers of nanocellulose are investing heavily in the development of advanced technologies & products which can help reduce environmental threats. Regulatory bodies are imposing stringent laws to limit the use of non-biodegradable material in the packaging sector.
Emerging use of nanocrystalline cellulose in nanotech applications
Nanocellulose market share from the nanocrystalline cellulose segment is expected to register over 20% CAGR between the years 2023 to 2032. Nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC) has unique chemical, optical, and electrical characteristics. It has been a promising renewable biomaterial that can be used in high-performance nanocomposites as a reinforcing component. With simple chemical modifications on the cellulose surface, companies can improve its dispersibility in different solvents and enhance its utilization in nanotech applications. Some of its uses include drug delivery, protein immobilization, and inorganic reaction templates. Such a vast application spectrum will influence the demand for nanocrystalline cellulose by 2032.
Wide-ranging application of nanocellulose material in composites
Nanocellulose market share from the composites application was valued at over USD 125 Million in 2022. Nanocellulose holds unique characteristics that make it a crucial material for reinforcing plastics. Some of these characteristics include extreme shear thinning, improved dispersion & stabilization of particles, and fast viscosity recovery. It also improves the mechanical properties of several composites such as soy protein, thermosetting resins, starch-based matrixes, rubber latex, and poly(lactide).
Wide-ranging use of nanocellulose in surface coatings and additives in wallboards, insulation, wood-based structural components, and cement or concrete will support product demand. For instance, in wallboards and other structural components, the material can be used for its ability to improve strength-to-weight ratios and add water resistance. While for insulation, cellulose nanomaterial can provide a thinner and more breathable insulation material. Nanocellulose can also be used to reinforce cement to increase durability and toughness.
