Microfibrillated Cellulose (MFC) Fiber Market Gaining Traction on the Back of Sustainability

With stringent government regulations, the demand for sustainable products has led market players throughout the value chain to look for superior alternatives. Microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) fiber is a biodegradable and renewable material and has emerged as the most suitable sustainable alternative for diverse end-use industries. Moreover, government agencies have made investments and collaborated with research organizations to develop processes with nano and microfibrillated cellulose fiber at pilot and commercial plants. The aforementioned factors are anticipated to bring new opportunities for market players to develop innovative and sustainable products for diverse end-use applications. On this backdrop, microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) fiber market is expected to register a CAGR of ~13.6% during the forecast period.

Consumption of Microfibrillated Cellulose Fiber to Remain Notable in Paper and Packaging Industry

Amid the diverse end-use applications, paper and packaging industry holds around three-fourth of the global microfibrillated cellulose fiber market share. This growth is attributed to the extensive beneficial properties offered by microfibrillated cellulose fiber such as increased bonding, dimensional stability, and reduction of raw material. MFC fiber offers a light, strong and eco-friendly packaging solution to the industry. Moreover, the addition of microfibrillated cellulose fiber in FDA’s food contact notification will further boost the consumption of microfibrillated cellulose fiber in food and dairy product packaging. Also, MFC manufacturers are collaborating with paper and packaging industry giants to ramp up the utilization of MFC fiber globally. For instance, in 2017, Stora Enso partnered with Elopak to launch Natura LifeTM, a new paperboard carton to cater to the growing needs of sustainable and authentic packaging of ecological and organic products.

Developed Countries to Capture One-Third of the Global Sales

Developed regions such as US and Europe account for over one-third of the global microfibrillated market on the back of government initiatives to develop sustainable solutions for paper and packaging industry. For instance, in 2016, Borregaard received US$ 27 Mn European funding for the development and commercialization of Exilva MFC fiber. Furthermore, in 2016, Norse Skog received funding of US$ 0.8 Mn from Innovation Norway for enhanced production of microfibrillated cellulose fiber. Similarly, US has witnessed tremendous growth in microfibrillated cellulose fiber market due to growing packaging industry and stringent regulatory policies on using lightweight and sustainable packaging materials. However, developing countries such as China and India have become an epicenter for manufacturers to leverage the growing demand for premium packaging products and have strengthened their position in these regions.
