Cellulose nanofibers (Cellulose Nanofibril, Nanofibrillated Cellulose, CNFs) are generated from wood-derived fibrils with length in the micrometer and width in the nanometric range during the biosynthesis of cellulose. Today in Japan, there is widespread scientific and commercial interest in cellulose nanofibers. CNF will greatly impact environmentally friendly and biodegradable solutions in market such as packaging, paper & board, composites, coatings & films, medical & healthcare, textiles, oil & gas, filtration, rheology modifiers, aerogels, 3D printing and printed & flexible electronics. The market for cellulose nanofibers has developed rapidly in Japan over the past few years.
Japan is by far the largest producer and consumer of cellulose nanofiber products. The market mainly comprises cellulose nanofiber production, with a few producers also looking at cellulose nanocrystals.
These companies produce CNF on a pre-commercial and commercial scale and produce numerous products or supply to OEMs. Several CNF-based products have come onto the market in Japan including:
