Nybro Municipality (Nybro kommun) is a municipality in Kalmar County, south-eastern Sweden, with its seat in the town Nybro.

The amalgamation of the City of Nybro (instituted in 1932) with its surrounding municipalities took place in 1969.

The municipality was inhabited by a few hundred people until the railways came in the late 19th century, and the town Nybro was in its location between Kalmar on the east coast and Gothenburg on the west coast; later also on the railway from Kalmar and Malmö in the south-west. Until then Nybro mostly consisted of minor industries, marked by its traditionally Småland forest nature, largely unsuitable for any agriculture. The most notable were a match factory; apart from that Nybro was also the easternmost part of the Glasriket, Kingdom of Crystal, that covers a total of four municipalities and has had many glass blowers, most notably Orrefors, Emmaboda and Kosta Boda.
