May 16, 2016
By Business Wire News


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Emerging Applications of Nanocellulose Technology (TechVision)” report to their offering.

The nanocellulose market has the potential to span many different industries that can be categorized as high volume and low volume applications. In order to be successful in nanocellulose business there must be a consistent supply of material that can be delivered in a cost-effective manner for the target application.

Manufactures worldwide are approaching a reality for widespread use of nanocellulose by adopting a number of strategic steps including production capacity extension, joint research and development for new product or technology design and etc. As capacity increases the market for nanocellulose is expected to grow in paper, plastics, automobile, and other specialty applications.

This research service focuses on the advances, innovations, and emerging opportunities in NC technologies, with a primary focus on high-volume applications including cement, automotive bodies and interiors, paper and packaging coatings, paper and packaging fillers, plastic packaging and plastic film replacements, hygiene and absorbent products, and textiles for clothing. NC for low volume and other emerging applications have not been analyzed in details.
