Natural rubber gloves segment was the highest revenue contributor to the market in 2022. Natural rubber cleanroom disposable gloves are made from latex, a milky fluid harvested from rubber trees (Hevea brasiliensis). This material provides the gloves with elasticity and flexibility. Latex gloves are highly elastic, allowing them to stretch and conform to the shape of the hand. This elasticity provides a snug fit and reduces the risk of tears or rips during use. These gloves are known for their comfort, making them suitable for prolonged wear. They offer good sensitivity and dexterity, which is essential for tasks that require precision and fine motor skills.
Moreover, these gloves serve as an effective barrier against a wide range of liquids, chemicals, and microorganisms. They are commonly used in healthcare settings, laboratories, and industries where protection against biological or chemical hazards is necessary. Natural rubber cleanroom disposable gloves are widely used in medical and healthcare settings for procedures such as surgeries, examinations, and patient care. They help prevent the transmission of infections and protect healthcare workers and patients.
Semiconductors industry segment was the highest revenue contributor to the market in 2022. Semiconductor manufacturing has become more advanced with the development of smaller and more intricate devices. This trend demands cleanroom disposable gloves that provide better dexterity, tactile sensitivity, and precision to handle delicate components. In addition, as the demand for smaller and more powerful electronic devices increases, semiconductor manufacturers need gloves that offer a higher degree of precision and cleanliness to handle the intricate components used in these devices.
The growth in demand for microelectronic devices and components in various applications, such as consumer electronics, automotive, and healthcare, drives the semiconductor industry. This growth creates an increased demand for cleanroom disposable gloves to maintain product cleanliness. Moreover, the rise in demand for microelectronics in applications such as smartphones, IoT devices, automotive electronics, and healthcare technology offers opportunities for glove suppliers to meet the increase in need for cleanroom disposable gloves.
