Introduction: Nano Crystal Cellulose Market

Nano crystal cellulose is one of the key emerging renewable nanomaterial which is anticipated to create an enormous influence on end use sector. Nano crystal cellulose is obtained by extraction of wood biomass and then it can treated with solid, liquid or with gel form. Pulp, wood, potato, bacteria, sugar beet are the raw material used for nano crystal cellulose. Various methods are used to manufacture nano crystal cellulose such as, acetylation, esterification and others, but of which acidic treatment method is actively used to achieve the maximum yield of nano crystal cellulose. Properties of nano crystal cellulose plays a vital role in consumption globally such as, its high aspect ratio, good water uptake, film formation, strong fiber network, and others, along  with this key properties nano crystal cellulose has unique electrical, optical and magnetic properties. The approximate diameter of nano crystal cellulose ranges between 3-5 nm and of length 100-600 nm. Owing to advanced tensile strength nano crystal cellulose can be used in the manufacture of lightweight and strong composites, which can be used in construction, packaging and aerospace industry. In electronic industry, NCC can be used in electronic displays, panels and security papers.

Consumption of nano crystal cellulose in end use industries is expected to gain traction in the near future. Application of nano crystal cellulose in oil & gas industry plays a vital role it can used as, rheloogy modifier, thickner during the drilling fluid and as viscosifier. In paints & coatings industry, nano crystal cellulose used as functional additives to alter rheological properties as well as emulsifier.

Market Dynamics: Nano Crystal Cellulose Market

The nano crystal cellulose market is expected to gain traction during the forecast period. The demand is majorly driven some of the key factors end user industries such as drilling fluids, automotive and among others. In automotive sector, nano crystal cellulose based composites can be used in the production of accessories such as cushions, headliners and headlamps. The other driving factors for the growth of nano crystal cellulose are its properties such as, its optical filler content property than any other cellulose. Application of nano crystal cellulose over others is expected to gain traction in end use industries such as, cosmetics, food and pharmaceutical among others. In spite of significant applications, the nano crystal cellulose threat from many substitutes such as cellulose ethers and microcrystalline cellulose is expected to hinder the market growth over the next few years. Along with this, shortage of commercial machineries and low consumer awareness are the expected to be the major restraints for the market growth.
