Japan Cellulose Nanofibers Market Report 2018 – ResearchAndMarkets.com

The “The
Market for Cellulose Nanofibers in Japan” report has been added
to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Japan is at the forefront of the global cellulose nanofibers market. The
Japanese government has actively promoted these environmentally friendly
advanced materials since 2014, and The Ministry of Economy, Trade and
Industry (METI) estimates that the market will expand to 1 trillion yen
($8 billion) by 2030. The market for cellulose nanofibers in Japan has
grown significantly in the past two years. Japan is by far the largest
current market for cellulose nanofiber producers, product developers and
products.

Most major Japanese paper manufacturers have established cellulose
nanofiber production capabilities and have started to bring products to
the market in the last 18 months. Target markets range from packaging to
consumer electronics. Products on the market incorporating cellulose
nanofibers include ballpoint pen inks, adult and child diapers, wet
wipes, headphone diaphragms and footwear.

The market is exploding in Japan with large paper manufacturers such as
Nippon Paper and Oji Holdings establishing multi-ton cellulose nanofiber
production facilities. Asahi Kasei, Japan’s leading chemicals
manufacturer recently announced plans for cellulose nanofiber
production, with trial production starting in 2018.

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. Domestic production capacity is estimated to
exceed 800 tons per annum within the next year.
