The global Disposable Gloves market size is expected to be worth around US$ 15.87 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Disposable Gloves market size was valued at US$ 10.20 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9.10% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.
The rising cases of Covid-19, particularly in North America and Asia Pacific, are projected to augment the demand for disposable gloves.
The global pandemic boosted the demand for disposable gloves, which strained the supply chain, thus creating a shortage in the market. The manufacturers are expanding their production capacities to meet the growing demand, thereby improving the global supply chain over the past few months.
The rising awareness regarding employee health and safety, along with the increasing industrial fatalities in the emerging economies, is also projected to boost the market growth over the forecast period. Technological advancements, coupled with the growing product demand in medical operations, are anticipated to complement market growth.
Distributors play a vital role in the global market as the product manufacturers are dependent on them for product distribution. Globalization and consolidation of manufacturers are anticipated to have a significant impact on the distributors, which is projected to compel them to broaden their horizons and look beyond the traditional boundaries.
The natural rubber segment led the market and accounted for over 37% of the global revenue share in 2020. Natural rubber-based products offer superior performance and protection in various applications, such as medical & dental, food processing & service, janitorial & sanitation, pharmaceutical, and automotive. However, allergy caused by natural latex acts as a significant restraint, limiting the penetration of products made from natural rubber in the medical and food industries.
The nitrile material segment is anticipated to account for the highest revenue share by 2028 growing at the fastest CAGR of more than 10% during the forecast years. This growth can be credited to the rising adoption of nitrile-based products in the medical, painting, chemical, laboratory, and dentistry sectors. Higher puncture and chemical resistance of nitrile than vinyl and natural rubber are anticipated to boost the segment growth.
Vinyl-based products are latex-free and are made from (PVC) and plasticizers. These gloves offer high comfort and tactile sensitivity as compared to neoprene gloves. Vinyl-based products are suitable in an environment where frequent change of gloves is required, such as food preparation. Other applications include manufacturing, print shops, assembly, and medical industries.
(PE) is the most cost-effective material for gloves. PE gloves offer a loose fit and are lightweight. These are particularly designed to come on and off quickly and easily. These products are also latex- and powder-free and are used for light-duty applications that require frequent change of gloves, such as food processing & serving work, salad preparation, and other food applications.
The powder-free product segment led the global disposable gloves market and accounted for over 72% of the total revenue share in 2020. Stringent regulations on the use of powdered gloves by several governments worldwide are expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the powder-free gloves market over the forecast period.
Powder-free products are treated with chlorination, which makes them less form-fitting to eliminate the use of powder for easy donning and removal. Rising preference for powder-free gloves across several industries, including chemical, medical, and food processing, among others, is projected to drive the segment over the forecast period.
On January 19, 2017, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned the manufacturing, sales, and distribution of all powdered patient examination gloves, powdered surgeon gloves, and absorbable powder used to lubricate surgeon’s gloves, which, in turn, anticipated to hamper the growth of the powdered product segment over the forecast period. However, the powdered gloves offer better protection against hazardous chemicals or physical contaminants and perfect fitting than their counterparts.
The medical end-use segment led the market and accounted for more than 78% of the global revenue share in 2020. The global Covid-19 pandemic is anticipated to boost the demand for gloves in the healthcare sector. Disposable gloves are often classified based on application as surgical and examination gloves. Disposable examination gloves have witnessed substantial growth in the medical sector on account of higher demand in hospital, veterinary, and dental applications. Surgical disposable gloves have high-quality standards compared to examination gloves and are commonly used by surgeons and operating room nurses.
Disposable gloves are essential to protect employees against hand injuries that are common across numerous industries, including food processing, construction, automotive, oil & gas, and metal fabrication. These gloves provide protection against hot objects, splinters, bodily fluids, sharp edges, excessive vibrations, electricity, and extreme cold. The demand for disposable gloves in the chemical & petrochemical industries is anticipated to witness significant growth in the forecast period for handling volatile chemicals in laboratories and chemical industries. Furthermore, rising concerns pertaining to employee safety and initiatives to reduce injury rates in manufacturing facilities are anticipated to augment the demand for protective gloves over the forecast period.
North America led the market and accounted for over 35% of the global revenue share in 2020. The Covid-19 outbreak has resulted in increased product demand across several sectors in the region. Increasing healthcare expenditure coupled with the growing elderly population and rising awareness pertaining to HAIs is projected to have a positive impact on the regional market growth.
The upgrading of the public healthcare system and infrastructure coupled with investments in new facilities are part of the reform plan. These developments are expected to drive the demand for medical equipment and devices. The demand for hand protection equipment, such as disposable and durable gloves, is anticipated to witness growth owing to the expanding medical sector in the region.
Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast years. The market in APAC is characterized by increased product demand from the medical, food & beverages, and industrial applications. Furthermore, the Covid-19 pandemic is further projected to augment the product demand across developing countries of the region, such as India, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
The product demand in Latin America is anticipated to register a significant CAGR over the forecast period. Factors, such as increasing public-private partnerships in the healthcare industry and improving healthcare infrastructure, are expected to benefit the market in the region over the forecast period.
