Japan is by a considerable distance the most significant market for cellulose nanofibers (CNF), leading the way in government funding, production capacity and product development. Already commercialized in numerous consumer products, cellulose nanofibers will also greatly impact the composites, batteries, electronics, filtration, medical markets in the next few years.

Large paper manufacturers such as Nippon Paper and Oji Holdings have established multi-ton cellulose nanofiber production facilities. Large chemical manufacturers are also moving into the market.

Products on the market incorporating cellulose nanofibers include ballpoint pen inks, adult and child diapers, wet wipes, headphone diaphragms and footwear.

Product samples are available for commercial trials and will find wider application in packaging and composites over the next few years. Dai Nippon Printing Co. Ltd., Tentok Paper Works, Risho Kogyo Co. Ltd., Daio Paper Corp., KRI Inc. have all recently announced new products and production initiatives.

Report contents include:

  • Commercial activity in cellulose nanofibers in Japan. Current and planned.
