Dublin, Nov. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Nanocellulose: Global Markets" report has been added to's offering.

This report will cover the nanocellulose industry. Definitive and detailed estimates and forecasts of the global market are provided, followed by a detailed analysis of the regions and applications. Furthermore, the ongoing market trends, market growth drivers, and challenges impeding the market are discussed.

Market size and estimations will be provided in terms of volume and revenue considering 2021 as the base year. Market forecasts will be given from 2022-2027. The market size for different regions (regions by product, applications, and end use) will also be covered. The impact of COVID-19 was also considered when deriving market estimations.


Global markets, nanocellulose segments, and growth forecasts through 2027 are offered. Sales value estimates are based on prices in the supply chain. Market-driving forces and industry structure are examined. International aspects are analyzed for all global regions and profiles of major global manufacturers are presented.

This report considers the impact of COVID-19. In 2020, the growth rate of manufacturing industries around the world was severely affected by the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic halted progress in every regional economy. Various governments around the world are taking measures to contain the economic slowdown.

The nanocellulose market is further segmented by product type: nanofibrillated cellulose, nanocrystalline cellulose, and bacterial cellulose. By application, it is segmented into high-volume applications, low-volume applications, and emerging applications. By end use, the market is segmented into composites, paper processing, paints and coatings, food and beverages, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, oil and gas, and others.

The research scope of the nanocellulose market does not include the market share of microcellulose. Nanocellulose volume in the report depicts all active types and forms that are currently available on a commercial scale. We have considered actual demand instead of the potential market estimated by various organizations.
