Top 2 players in nanocellulose market:
Nippon Paper Group (Japan)
The company is progressing in the market by adopting an acquisition and collaboration strategy. The company has a cellulose nanofiber (CNF) manufacturing plant at Gotsu, Japan. This plant produces CNF to cater to food & cosmetics applications and has a capacity of more than 30 tons. In September 2021, the company signed an agreement with Coca-Cola Japan for conservation and development of forest resources in order to build a sustainable society. It also made an acquisition of Elopak ASA in June 2021 in order to strengthen in position in liquid paper packaging industry.
Stora Enso (Sweden)
is one of the largest producers of microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) in the world. It has adopted various growth strategies, including acquisition and expansion, to maintain its leading position in the nanocellulose market. For example, Stora Enso acquired Cellutech AB (Sweden), a cellulose technology company in October 2018. This acquisition helped the company to develop nanocellulose materials for packaging applications and strengthen its position in the packaging industry. In August 2020, the company scheduled the construction of a new pilot facility at its Fors mill in Sweden for production of cellulose foam. This material could become a breakthrough solution for packaging industry as it will be a lightweight, bio-based solution for protective packaging and cushioning applications.
