“The Global Nano-cellulose market is growing at a high CAGR 18% during the forecast period (2021-2028)”.
Nano-cellulose is a material that is comprised of nano-sized cellulose fibrils. It is pseudo-plastic and exhibits thixotropic behavior is derived from wood fibers by an acid hydrolysis process which results in the formation of highly crystalline and rigid nano-fibers.
Nano-cellulose is widely preferred for their enhanced mechanical, thermal and structural properties. Other features such as high aspect ratio, biodegradability, low density, and homogeneity make nano-cellulose capable of being used in a wide range of application areas.

Stringent regulations on packaging materials, demand petrochemical products, unstable prices of petrochemicals, abundant availability of raw material, extensive investments on Nano-cellulose products, and the novel properties of Nano-cellulose are some of the salient factors responsible for the growth of the global Nano-cellulose market.
Petrochemicals, which turn oil and gas into daily use products such as plastics, fertilizers, packaging material, and others are crucial to modern society. Petrochemicals consume 14% of the daily global oil use and 8% of gas.
International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts that the demand for petrochemical products will grow by 30% by 2030 and 60% by 2050.
Moreover, the global oil demand in 2018 is 6.9mb/d and is expected to reach 104.7mb/d by 2023. Thus, a need for substituting this demand for petrochemical products would drive the market for Nano-cellulose.
Additionally, the cost of Brent crude oil in 2014 was USD 99, and it decreased to USD 52 in 2015 and continued to decline until 2016 to USD 43 per barrel finally settling at USD 71 in 2018.
These fluctuations in oil prices have demanded to find alternative solutions for petrochemical products, and thus, the demand for Nano-cellulose is expected to increase in the future.
The high cost of R&D activities, lack of technological advancements, a dearth of awareness about nano-cellulose in developing economies of the world and regulatory concerns are the critical aspects hindering the global nano-cellulose market.
Although most of the nano-cellulose materials are non-toxic, there have been reports of Nano-cellulose exhibiting toxic behavior.
At high concentrations, crystalline nano-cellulose is said to induce inflammatory effects on human lungs. Thus, governments are imposing stringent norms on the usage of nano cellulose-based products, and this is one of the crucial factors hampering the growth of the global nano-cellulose market.
