Flock Adhesive Market to Grow More Than Double, Surpassing US$ 4.6 Billion by 2032


The global flock adhesive market is anticipated to reach a valuation of US$ 4.6 billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 5.5% during the evaluation period from 2022 to 2032. Application of flock adhesives in paper, textile, and automotive sectors to join materials such as metals, plastics, and rubber is the key factor driving the demand.

As these adhesives are also environment friendly because they don’t emit any harmful particles, adoption in diverse industries has surged, as per the study. Epoxy resin is considered to be the most preferred resin for flock adhesives as it is biodegradable. Hence, the demand for epoxy resin flock adhesives is projected to surge at a robust pace over the forecast period.

Further, automotive industry is expected to be the most prominent segment driving the growth of flocking adhesives. These adhesives are increasingly being used in car interiors due to the stringent regulations pertaining to the use of plastic. Along with the automotive industry, flocking adhesives are also used in industrial manufacturing, cosmetics, home, packaging, and textile.

As of now, North America is the key producer of flock adhesives, opines Fact.MR. The demand for these adhesives is predicted to rise in the U.S., as it is home to one of the world’s largest automotive and textile industries.
