The Western Europe sterile gloves market was valued at $ 2,338.89 million in 2018 and is projected to reach $ 4,761.13 million by 2025, registering a CAGR of 8.1% from 2021 to 2025. 

Sterile gloves are defined as sterile when they meet the standards for sterilization techniques. Non-sterile gloves are not usually sterilized by manufacturers of gloves, but still must be tested by government agencies after sterilization to ensure that they meet the standard assurance level (SAL) for sterilization techniques. Over a period, various variants of sterile gloves have been developed, such as natural rubber, nitrile, vinyl, and neoprene. Each variant renders a unique benefit over conventional gloves; which, in turn, increases its applications in various industries such as food services, clean rooms, and industrial applications. For instance, nitrile gloves are more puncture-resistant, frictionless, and offer longer shelf life than Latex Powder gloves.

The Western Europe sterile gloves market is positively impacted by the pandemic as medical gloves are essential during the COVID-19 outbreak. They help to slow down the spread of the disease by protecting hands from coarse contaminants and protect health care providers. Medical gloves are a form part of the personal protective equipment (PPE) that are used to protect health care professionals and patients from spread of infection. In addition, in May 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended that use of gloves should be done during food handling, cleaning, gardening, trades, or caring for someone who is sick, and while in contact with blood, stool, or body fluids, such as saliva, mucus, vomit, and urine. If gloves are not used appropriately, they can pose a risk of spreading germs, putting workers and others at risk. Further, in February 2020, the directorate general of foreign trade removed some masks and gloves from banned export list such as such as surgical masks/disposable masks and all gloves except Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) gloves are allowed to export free of cost. Moreover, In March 2020, Malaysia’s Top Glove Corporation Bhd, which makes one in every five gloves globally, expects a product shortage as demand from Europe and the U.S. spikes, owing to increase in coronavirus outbreak. Thus, the company has extended shipping times to cope with demand surge. Therefore, this has concluded that rise in number of cases of corona virus across the globe has made an impact on the sterile gloves industry, by giving opportunities to key players for expanding manufacturing of gloves to uplift the industry.

The major factors that drive growth of the Western Europe sterile gloves market is rise in concern related to safety and hygiene, coupled with novel manufacturing technologies for making gloves temperature-resistant, rupture-resistant, and control latex-associated infections. However, highly competitive pricing offered by local manufacturers hampers the market growth. Moreover, developing and untapped economies are expected to create lucrative opportunities for Europe sterile glove manufacturers in the future.

Analyst Review

In accordance to several interviews conducted, utilization of sterile gloves is projected to witness a significant increase, owing to high incidences of diseases across the globe as well as utilization of gloves in the medical sector. The market is largely fragmented and several manufacturers have focused on offering advanced and novel sterile gloves, which aid in curbing latex-associated allergies and hospital acquired infections. 

Sterile gloves are majorly utilized in the medical sector, owing to increase in prevalence of diseases and infections. Moreover, sterile gloves are used in non-medical applications in sectors such as industrial, food industry, and clean room. In addition, use of non-powder gloves supplements the market growth as these gloves do not develop adhesion and granulomas, thereby reducing risk of post-operative wound infections as well as latex allergies, sensitizations, and hypersensitivity.

Furthermore, the government in Western Europe favors use of medical surgical gloves, as these provide superior protection against infections during medical diagnosis or surgeries. Furthermore, rise in health awareness, increase in disposable income, and use of advanced medical technology boosts adoption of sterile gloves in Western Europe, which, in turn, contributed toward the market growth
