Analyst Review

The utilization of disposable gloves is projected to witness a significant increase, owing to high incidence of diseases across the Middle East as well as the utilization of gloves in non-medical sectors. The market is largely fragmented, and several small and medium manufacturers have focused on offering advanced and novel disposable 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 gloves industry.

Disposable gloves are majorly utilized in the medical sector, owing to increase in prevalence of diseases and infections. Moreover, disposable gloves are used in non-medical applications in sectors such as industrial, food industry, and clean rooms. Furthermore, polyethylene-based disposable gloves are in high demand in the industry, due to their cost-effectiveness and ease of availability. Moreover, increase in demand for food safety across the world supplements the adoption of polyethylene gloves. In addition, 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. Each of these variants render unique benefits over conventional gloves; this also paves way for a wide application spanning range of industries such as food service, clean room, and industrial application among others. For instance, nitrile gloves are more puncture resistant and friction less with a long shelf life as compared to latex gloves.
