Global Microfibrillated Cellulose Market Report to 2028 - Featuring Borregaard Chemicals, Daicel and FiberLean Technologies Among Others -

The "Microfibrillated Cellulose Market, by Manufacturing Process, By Distribution Channel, and by Region - Size, Share, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2021 - 2028" report has been added to's offering.

This report provides an in-depth analysis of the global microfibrillated cellulose market, provides market size (US$ Million), and compound annual growth rate (CAGR %) for the forecast period (2021-2028), considering 2020 as the base year.

Microfibrillated cellulose is produced by mechanical treatment with or without enzymatic or chemical pre-treatment. The Microfibrillated cellulose consists of long and thin fibers, which form a three-dimensional network. MFC has high viscosity and yield stress, it is shear thinning and has high water holding capacity. The size distribution of the fibers is wide, and even if some fibers have diameters in nanoscale, there are a lot of bigger fibers as well. Moreover, the fibers are in a network structure and interconnected to each other.

The threat of climate change and environmental degradation is increasing day by day. The primary benefit of using microfibrillated cellulose is that it can bolster strength and reduce the weight of fiber materials in a sustainable manner, by generating end products with reduced material volumes, without compromising on performance. There is significant demand for microfibrillated cellulose in paper and packaging applications. However, microfibrillated cellulose market has not strongly developed in all other applications, which drive the players to focus on research and development of microfibrillated cellulose to meet specifications required for particular applications.

Microfibrillated cellulose are bio-based materials and are synthesized from wood pulp. This natural product caters to various industries including paper, packaging, and others. Thus, the increasing demand for biodegradable products is expected to drive the growth of the microfibrillated cellulose market globally during the forecast period. Microfibrillated cellulose are bio-based additive that improves rheology, stability, and has very high water retention capability. Growing demand for sustainable and green packaging solutions is expected to drive global microfibrillated cellulose market during the forecast period.

Microfibrillated cellulose are prepared by biosynthesis of monosaccharaides or the fermentation of cellulose fibers by using enzymes to reduce their size. This procedure is time consuming and require more expensive reagents. Microfibrillated cellulose are used as a natural performance enhancer for bio-based packaging material, offering stronger durability while also fulfilling international food safety standards, making it ideal for paper and packaging industry.

However, less awareness about microfibrillated cellulose in various emerging and underdeveloped countries is expected to restrain the market growth. The lack of universal directives pertaining to applications of microfibrillated cellulose is also restraining the market growth.
