Japan Cellulose Nanofibers Market Report 2022-2032


Dublin, Sept. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Cellulose Nanofibers Market in Japan 2022" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Japan is by far the largest producer and consumer of CNF products.

Strong government and industry funding has given Japan the world's largest cellulose nanofibers (CNF) "industry" with commercial production facilities operating across the country. Also, ambitious national targets for reducing CO2 emissions make nanocellulose particularly attractive for product development.

CNF research and development started in Japan around 2000, and more than 50 companies are seriously developing their manufacturing technologies and applications. Additional companies are also involved in government projects. These companies produce CNF on a pre-commercial and commercial scale and produce numerous products or supply to OEMs.

Companies profiled include Ashai Kasei Chemicals Corporation, Chuetsu Pulp & Paper Co., Ltd., Toagosei Co. Ltd., Daicel Corporation, Hexa Chemicals, Daio Paper, Daishowa Paper Products Co. Ltd., DIC Corporation, DKS Co. Ltd., Hokuetsu Toyo Fibre Co., Ltd., Kao Corporation, KRI Inc. and many more.

Several CNF-based products have come onto the market in Japan including:

  • Ballpoint pen ink gels
  • Adult deodorizing products
  • Audio equipment
  • Hygiene wipes and other products
  • Footwear
  • Cosmetics
  • Food additives
