The North America PPE gloves market is expected to witness a significant rise in the coming years. This is chiefly due to its potential applications in automotive, metal fabrication, food processing, plane manufacturing, chemical, construction, and other industries. The regulatory bodies such as OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) and FDA (Food and Drug Administration), govern the rules and regulations regarding the usage of gloves across various applications, such as manufacturing, and are mainly concerned about the safety of workers and product end users. The rules are very stringent and the non-compliance to the rules and regulations regarding work safety can lead to heavy fines from the regulatory bodies. In addition, any accident in the factory or among end users can adversely affect the manufacturer’s brand name. This has led to the large-scale adoption of gloves in North America in industrial manufacturing, food processing, hospitals, and other applications.
