The utilization of disposable medical gloves is projected to witness a significant increase, owing to high incidence of diseases across the globe. The market is largely fragmented, and several manufacturers have focused on offering advanced and novel disposable medical gloves, which aid in curbing latex-associated allergies and hospital acquired infections. In addition, market players have successfully manufactured gloves with different properties such as higher resistance against chemicals, superior anti-tear properties and gloves with limited thickness thereby not affecting the wearing and removing process, which is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for the growth of disposable medical gloves industry.

Disposable medical gloves are primarily used across health care industry, as a protective tool that avoids cross infection between caregivers and patients or the users. Over time, numerous variants of disposable medical gloves have been developed. These include natural rubber, nitrile, vinyl, and neoprene. Latex rubber, as a material is the major component used during the production of disposable medical gloves; however, this trend is shifting from latex gloves to nitrile or vinyl due to the increase in cases of infection from the latex gloves. Each of these variants render unique benefits over conventional gloves; this also paves way for a wide application spanning range of industries such as clean room, and other medical applications. For instance, nitrile gloves are more puncture resistant and friction less with a long shelf life as compared to latex gloves, thus are utilized in many medical surgeries.

Increase in incidences of pandemic diseases such as swine flu (H1N1 pandemic) and a resultant need for infection prevention/control aids, such as “disposable medical gloves”, (economically, can be used) drive the growth of global disposable medical gloves market volume (billion gloves). Moreover, polyethylene-based disposable medical gloves are in high demand in the industry, due to their cost effectiveness and ease of availability. The use of non-powder gloves aids in supplementing the market growth, as these gloves do not develop adhesion and granulomas, thereby reducing the risk of post-operative wound infection as well as latex allergens sensitizations, and hypersensitivity.
