The market volume is predicted to expand at 5.22% CAGR over the forecast period.
Flock adhesives are used to produce a smooth, faultless finish in a substrate. Flock is a term used for a mass of short fibers cut from the substance that has to be pasted onto a substrate. The flock is electrostatically attached to the substrate with the help of flock adhesives. Millions of small strands are fired at the substrate, which results in an almost vertical alignment of the fibers due to the electric charge, producing a uniform and aesthetically pleasing arrangement. The flock adhesive technique produces a highly homogenous finish that can even be customized according to the specific requirements. Using longer, thinner fabrics produces a softer surface, whereas using shorter and thicker fibers results in a brush-like surface. They can also be easily painted and offer a fissure-free surface, which gives flock adhesives an advantage over existing adhesive and joining technologies.
The widespread applicability and customizability of flock adhesives has led to their widespread use in the industrial sector. It is highly useful in creating a smooth and uniform plain print over a wide range of substrates. This is the major driver for the global flock adhesives market. The market is likely to expect massive demand from the automotive sector owing to the need for aesthetically pleasing surfaces. This factor can play a major role in augmenting market growth thanks to increased purchasing power of consumers.
