Global Nitrocellulose Market Outlook

The global nitrocellulose market size reached a value of around USD 933.1 million in 2022. During the forecast period of between 2023 and 2028, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.70% to reach around USD 1,301.26 million by 2028.

 

Key Trends in the Market

Nitrocellulose, also known as guncotton and cellulose nitrate, is made from the combination of nitric esters of the highly flammable cellulose molecule. It is a crucial component of various lacquers, paints, and smokeless gunpowder. Nitrocellulose can be used in wood pulp or cotton linters and is created from refined cellulose. Based on the availability of cellulose, acid concentration, reaction temperature, time, and acid-to-cellulose ratio, the nitrocellulose characteristics can differ.

 

  • In the building and construction sector, sliding doors and windows, furniture decking, and other uses, wood coatings based on nitrocellulose are very common. The need for furniture has increased due to the building and construction industry's rapid growth as well as growing living standards, which will likely propel the nitrocellulose market forward.
  • Nitrocellulose is used in standard nail lacquer compositions. It is a necessary element because of its powerful bond to natural nails. Semi-occlusive nail polishes made of nitrocellulose protect the nail while simultaneously allowing it to breathe. Over the forecast period, demand for nail varnish applications is anticipated to increase as a result of the expanding cosmetics sector globally.
  • In addition, nitrocellulose is used to create over-the-counter (OTC) medication products for the eradication of corns, warts, and calluses in the pharmaceutical sector. The production of membranes for microfilters, electro methods, skin protectants, microscopy embedding, and the immobilisation of protein, ribonucleic acid, and DNA with labelled sequences or antibodies using nitrocellulose is also gaining popularity.

 

Global Nitrocellulose Market Analysis

Based on product type, the market is segmented into M Grade cellulose and E Grade cellulose, among others.

  • Synthesia A.S.
  • The Nitrocellulose Group
  • TNC industrial Co. Ltd.
  • Others

 

Market Share by Application

The wood coating segment is projected to be a significant segment of the nitrocellulose market during the forecast period. In wood finishing, nitrocellulose-based lacquers are frequently employed, particularly when a high-quality finish is required. They improve the appearance of grains in a variety of woods, dry quickly, and give great polishing properties. Most wood finishes are made of nitrocellulose, which has a sizeable amount of nitrogen in it. Nitrocellulose has a glossy finish, dries quickly, and strongly sticks to different substrates. 

 

The demand for furniture has increased as a result of rising standards of living worldwide, and this is projected to fuel segment expansion, thereby aiding the nitrocellulose market growth. Wood coatings are s used, among other things, on furniture decking, sliding windows, and doors. High demand and recent rapid growth in the furniture sector are anticipated to support segment growth during the projection years.

 

Market Share by Region

It is anticipated that the Asia Pacific region will experience rapid growth in the nitrocellulose market. This can be attributed to the booming industries for cosmetics, paints and coatings, printing inks, and personal care goods in Asia Pacific countries like India, Indonesia, and South Korea, among others. The region's biggest producers and importers of cellulosic material include emerging economies like India, Thailand, and China. 

 

To lower production costs, many firms are now moving their production facilities to the Asia Pacific region. These businesses benefit from lower labour costs as well as cheaper raw supplies. Additionally, a rise in the total client base is being brought on by the rapidly expanding demand for personal care products from the growing middle-class population in emerging economies of the Asia Pacific region.

 

Competitive Landscape

DuPont de Nemours, Inc. headquartered in the United States, is one of the world's largest producers of chemicals and science-based products. DuPont produces a wide range of industrial chemicals, synthetic fibres, sterile and speciality packaging materials, petroleum-based fuels and lubricants, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics ingredients, agricultural chemicals, and building materials. It also produces building materials and building products. 

 

GRN Cellulose Pvt. Ltd. was founded in 1990 and is one of the top producers of industrial grade nitrocellulose in powder (cotton) and solution form. Today, nitrocellulose produced by GRN is widely utilised in a variety of industries, including leather finishing lacquers, paints, wood lacquers, nail varnishes, printing inks, and in the defence sector.

 

Synthesia A.S. was founded in 1920 and is a leading producer of certified chemicals with headquarters in the Czech Republic. It specialises in the production of advanced organic intermediates, pigments, and dyes, as well as derivatives of cellulose. A significant portion of Synthesia's output is intended for export to European markets.

 

Other market players include The Nitrocellulose Group and TNC industrial Co. Ltd., among others.
