  • The COVID-19 affected sales of the nitrile gloves market in the first quarter of 2022, and is anticipated to have a negative impact on the market growth throughout the year.
  •  Major demand for the nitrile gloves market was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, the UK, and China, which were negatively affected by the spread of the coronavirus, thereby  leading to decline in demand for the  market.
  • Further, the potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on their cash reserves. Manufacturers in the market can afford a full lockdown only for a few months, after which they have to modify their investment plans. For instance, various players in the market halted their production activities for several weeks to reduce their expenses. On the contrary, few players adopted employee lay-offs to sustain themselves during the COVID-19  crisis.
  • Manufacturers in the market are expected to focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond to immediate crises and find new ways of working after the COVID-19. For instance,  use of sanitizers, maintenance of social distancing, and ensuring  vaccination of every employee in the company can assist in promoting  health & safety of  workforce. 

Top Impacting Factors

  • The healthcare business in developing countries is predicted to experience growth significantly, as a result of various reasons, including increase in investment in both public and private sectors, population expansion, increase in geriatric population, and a high influx of migrants. In addition, increasing healthcare expenditure is expected to boost growth of the healthcare industry globally, which is expected to propel the demand for hand protection throughout the forecast period.
  • As compared to latex gloves, nitrile gloves offer various, benefits such as longer shelf life, reduced friction, and puncture resistance. Furthermore, rise in awareness regarding latex allergies is anticipated to propel demand for these products during the forecast period. Nitrile gloves are predicted to grow in the market attributed to their greater resistance to chemicals and punctures as compared to vinyl & latex gloves.
  • The increasing number of COVID-19 cases globally has resulted in augmenting the demand for medical-grade nitrile gloves. Supply restrictions such as limited capacity of manufacturers, the long duration required for setting up new facilities, and the limited availability of workforce are anticipated to propel the demand supply gap of gloves globally.
  • Disposable nitrile glove manufacturers can partner or collaborate with regional companies in Asia to reduce raw material sourcing costs. Similarly, outsourcing manufacturing processes and signing sourcing agreements to generate recurring revenue are some of the strategic decisions manufacturers and distributors can make.

 Market Trends

  • New products with improved capabilities are launched by leading market players. For instance, in February 2018, Aurelia Gloves (US) launched a nitrile glove made for medical, manufacturing, and automotive applications.
  • Key players in the nitrile gloves market are adopting strategies such as acquisition to meet new demands from customers. For instance, in December 2020, Ansell (USA) acquired Primus based in India and related assets forming the life sciences business owned by Sanrea Healthcare and Primus Gloves. This acquisition will strengthen business in India.
  • As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hartalega Holdings Berhad stated in March 2020 that it has purchased property in Sepang, Malaysia, to extend its glove manufacturing operations.
