A Good Competitive Price Point Helps MFC Fiber Market to Flourish

Microfibrillated cellulose is extracted from plant waste making the raw material cost-effective for the final MFC fiber production. In addition, the MFC fiber marketplace has witnessed a significant evolution in terms of processing and production methods applied.

With the inclusion of new sources, novel pre- and post-treatment and new mechanical processes, a significant optimization has been established in MFC fiber production. With the advanced yet feasible mode of production and easy accessibility of raw materials, the MFC fibers are available at competitive prices suitable for multiple end-use applications.

Packaging Industry and MFC Fiber Manufacturers’ Collaborations Boost Market Growth

Ongoing trends such as clean label and sustainable production have led packaging manufacturers to seek raw materials that deliver better performance at an affordable cost. Product performance can be increased to 15-20% in terms of strength with the use of just 1% of MFC fibers in packaging material.

Superior material quality in terms of oxygen and moisture barriers allows the use of MFC fibers as film, nanocomposites and paper coatings across the packaging industry. Manufacturers can receive premium product quality with the use of less material and superior functions, thereby lowering overall production cost.

One of the prominent examples of collaborations between packaging giants and MFC fiber manufacturers is Elopak and Stora Enso partnership initiated to test microfibrillated cellulose-based liquid packaging cartons in Central and Eastern European dairy industry in 2016. Another example includes collaboration between BillerudKorsnäs and Borregaard for trial runs of MFC fiber usage in paper manufacturing.

Bio-Based Materials –A Changing Industrial Landscape Befits MFC Fiber Market Growth

Microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) fiber is a renewable and biodegradable material. Sustainability of microfibrillated cellulose fibers is ensured by its non-food and non-land competing nature. Industries such as paper and packaging are increasingly utilizing renewable and biodegradable materials such as MFC fibers. Further, beneficial properties of MFC fiber augurs well for end-users in achieving light-weight and stronger paper and packaging solutions.

Aware of these demand trends across industries, manufacturers in the MFC fiber market have ramped up their production capacities of MFC fiber. Apart from paper and packaging industry, increasing application of high quality MFC fiber in cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries has led manufacturers to focus on expanding their existing portfolio of MFC fibers. 

Competitive Landscape

The competitive landscape section of the MFC fiber market report provides a dashboard view of the MFC fiber market players. Further, in the company profiles section, the MFC fiber market report thoroughly discusses product offerings, global market presence, revenue share and notable business strategies undertaken by key market players.

MFC fiber market players are actively investing in adopting new production technologies to stand out in the marketplace. In October 2018, Stora Enso, another leader in MFC fiber market acquired Cellutech AB, a Swedish cellulose technology company. As Cellutech AB specializes in the production of cellulose, MFC fibers and other wood-based products, the acquisition is expected to aid Stora Enso in achieving its goal of establishing renewable material offerings in place of fossil-based materials.

Another prominent player in the MFC fiber market, Norske Skog partnered with PFI and opened SaugBrugs’ new demonstration plant for MFC fiber. The ongoing partnership focused on the better development of production processes of MFC fiber will enable Norske Skog to produce larger quantities of MFC fibers for the use in multiple applications.

In addition to these players, few of the other profiled players in the MFC fiber market are Daicel FineChem. Ltd., Fibria (Suzano Brazil), SAPPI, FiberLean Technologies Limited, CelluComp Ltd., Zelfo Technologies GmbH, Weidmann Fiber Technology, Nippon Paper, J. RETTENMAIER & Söhne Group and InoFib.
