Nanocrystalline Cellulose Market, By End User (Paper Processing, Food & Beverages, Medical & Pharmac

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1943850


The Nanocrystalline Cellulose Market is expected to promise high growth owing to the increasing demand rise in the utilization of biodegradable products in recent years. Increasing demand from end-use industries including paper processing, food & beverages, medical & pharmaceutical, personal care, composites manufacturing, paints & coatings, and others is expected to drive the growth of the market.

Nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC) is the building block of natural cellulose. It is obtained from the cellulose of wood and various plants. NCC exhibits various properties, such as high aspect ratio, non-toxicity, high level of water uptake & uphold, complex fiber networks, and biodegradability, among many others. NCC has a wide usage, as it improves tensile strength, stiffness, and surface smoothness.

Segment Insights

On the basis of end user, the global nanocrystalline cellulose market has been segmented into paper processing, food & beverages, medical & pharmaceutical, personal care, composites manufacturing, paints & coatings, and others. Paper processing is the major end user, as NCC improves the fiber-to-fiber bond used as a barrier in grease-proof type papers.

Nanocrystalline cellulose products have various medical applications, such as drug delivery systems, medical implants, wound healing, cardiovascular disease, tissue engineering, and antibacterial/antimicrobial activities.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • The rise in the utilization of biodegradable products
  • Growth of end-use industries
