Flocking is the process of collecting many small fiber particles onto a surface. It can also refer to the processor's texture to any material used primarily for its flocked surface. Moreover, an article's flocking can increase its value in tactile sensation, color, appearance and aesthetics. Also, it can be performed for functional reasons, including slip-or-grip friction, insulation, retention of a liquid film, and low reflectivity. In addition, flocking is achieved by attaching millions of natural or synthetic fibers to a surface. Over the years, flocking materials and technology have evolved, meaning that today a wide range of effects are achievable.
The flocking process can magically transform a plain, flat surface into a rich, warm, intensely-colored, comfortable and visually compelling texture.
The global flock adhesives market is estimated to reach USD XX billion by 2027 from the recorded market size of worth USD XX billion in 2019, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2020-2027).
The growing consumption of flock adhesives is expected to increase the market size during the forecast period due to its unique characteristics such as environmentally friendly, soft or hard, elastic or stiff, stable to solvents, resistant to scratching and rubbing, durable to washing and dry cleaning, stable to heat and coldness and storable.
The growing demand for flock adhesives in the automotive sector is expected to increase the market growth during the forecast period due to its significant application such as low friction, substantially improved component lifetime, increases bond strength, protection from highly corrosive environments & chemical attack, superior sliding wear resistance and high electrical resistivity is the key driver for this market. Moreover, the increasing demand for the resistance to scratching and rubbing, durable to washing and dry cleaning, stable to heat is expected to drive the flock adhesives market growth during the forecast period. According to industry analysis, the global automotive market is expected to reach USD 3,792 billion by 2030, from the recorded value of USD 2,682 billion with a CAGR of 2.85%.
Furthermore, increasing disposable income, government initiatives and urbanization for the textile industry's development & advancement are expected to boost the market growth. According to industry analysis, the global textile market is projected to increase in value from USD 1.45 trillion in 2020 to about USD 2.24 trillion during the forecast period due to the increasing demand for clothing and shoes. In addition, the development of technical textiles that offer protection against high temperatures, molten metal impact, an acid environment is estimated to boost the flock adhesives market growth.
By resin type, the market is segmented into vinyl resin, acrylic resin, polyurethane resin, epoxy resin and others. By technology, the market is segmented into aqueous dispersions, solvent-based adhesives, silicone-based adhesives, fixing agents & auxiliaries and others. By end-user, the market is segmented into automotive, cosmetic, industrial technology, home & household, paper industry, packaging, construction, textile and others.
A method of making a flocked product comprising a flock layer having a plurality of flock fibers, a thermo-adhesive layer, and a silicone adhesive layer positioned between the thermo-adhesive and the flock layer, wherein the silicone adhesive layer comprises (a) a vinyl siloxane, (b) a siloxane, (c) a catalyst, and (d) a rheology modifier, the method comprising: providing the thermo-adhesive layer; contacting a silicone adhesive with the thermo-adhesive layer, wherein the contacting comprises screen printing the silicone adhesive layer on the thermo-adhesive layer; and contacting flock fibers with the silicone adhesive layer, wherein the contacting of the flock fibers with the silicone adhesive layer comprises an electrostatic flocking process.
The Asia Pacific dominated the market due to rising demand from the automotive and textile industry, especially in India and China, which is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period and accounted for more than 40% in 2019. According to industry analysis, China generated revenue of approximately USD 118 billion in 2019 for the textile exporter sector due to low cost & vast labor, reduced commercial barriers, and material supply availability are a few of the country's competitive advantages for clothing manufacturing industry. In addition, increasing industrialization is expected to boost the market growth in the Asia Pacific region during the forecast period.
North America is estimated to expand at a significant CAGR in revenue during the forecast period. The United States is the largest manufacturer of flock adhesives in this region due to the increasing demand of the textile industry. Moreover, the textile industry in the United States is the fourth-largest exporter of textile-related products in the world. The United States is the world leader in textile R&D, with the textile complex in the country is developing next-generation textile materials, such as conductive fabric. In addition, the implementation of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is expected to encourage the domestic manufacturing of textiles in Mexico and Canada during the forecast period.
Europe is expected to contribute the significant growth for the flock adhesives market during the forecast period. According to the European Commission (EC), the textile and clothing sectors play an essential role in the European manufacturing industry and are among the world's leaders. In addition, the textile industry is expected to drive market growth in this region during the forecast period. According to industrial analysis, the European textile & clothing industry generated a turnover of approximately USD 180 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow with significant CAGR during the forecast period.
The flock adhesives market is fragmented with the presence of regional and global players.

Parker Hannifin Corp
Parker Hannifin Corp manufacture LORD Flocksil® 1503 D adhesive is a single-coat, polyurethane adhesive used to adhere cotton or polyester flock fibers to various uncured and semi-cured elastomers, including EPDM, NR, CR and SBR. Moreover, when used in combination with a surface treatment, Flocksil 1503 D adhesive can be used for flocking a variety of thermoplastic elastomers (TPE). Also, Flocksil 1503 D flock adhesive reacts and cures with moisture; however, a raised temperature cure is required to optimize performance and adhesion properties.
Furthermore, the shelf life is one year from the date of manufacture when stored in a well-ventilated area below 25°C (77°F) in an original, unopened container. After opening and removing contents, protect the adhesive from excessive exposure to moisture using dry nitrogen as an inert cover. Do not leave the container open.
