Nanocellulose: Producers, Products, and Applications A Guide for End Users
By Jack Miller
In order to successfully utilize cellulose nanomaterials in commercial applications, end users will need to understand the variety of available materials and the differences among them. Market-Intell developed this report specifically for end users to explain these differences, to detail the offerings of the various suppliers, and to review the state of the industry and the challenges on the road to commercialization. This report covers cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) and cellulose nanofibrils (CNF), as well as microfibrillated cellulose (MFC), and cellulose filaments CF). Overviews of the various cellulose nanomaterials are presented, with extensive references.
In addition, key features of this report include:
- Profiles of more than 50 producers, with product specifications, process descriptions, and guides for obtaining samples
- Recommendations for end users, which key questions to ask suppliers
- Explanation of what "nano" means and how the terminology can be misleading
- The status of commercial development
- Overview of issues relating to environment, health, and safety
- Cellulose nanomaterial potential by application
- Forecasts of volume to 2025
- Projected prices at commercial scale
This report is the product of extensive primary and secondary research, including more than 60 interviews by phone and email, as well as discussions with researchers and producers.
To ensure the accuracy of the more than 50 producer profiles, the profiles were submitted to producers for review and validation, and in most cases, producers provided their input. Often the information is confidential, available to customers only under NDA, but we have provided as much information as can be shared. Be sure to secure your copy of this one-of-a-kind collection of profiles on today’s producers of cellulose nanomaterials.
