Rubber Gloves Market Growth & Trends
The global rubber gloves market size is expected to reach USD 18.28 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc, expanding at a CAGR of 3.9% over the forecast period. Rising government spending on healthcare in countries, such as Germany, Italy, India, Australia, and the U.K., is likely to boost industry expansion over the forecasted period. The global COVID-19 pandemic augmented the need for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), such as gowns, gloves, face shields, and masks. Governments from across the world are coordinating with rubber glove makers to ensure enough supply in the market and avoid future virus spread.
Rising product usage in industries, such as automotive, oil & gas, construction, clean room, metal & equipment, and chemicals, is driving the industry growth. This is due to the presence of strong rules governing worker safety in numerous nations, such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), as well as the high expenses associated with workplace dangers. The product demand is predicted to increase as more food & beverage sector operators, such as bakeries, packaged goods, and restaurants, focus on making their products free of direct touch. This can be related to increased consumer awareness about food hygiene and the prevention of illnesses caused by food deterioration and misuse.
Increasing awareness among industry participants regarding the importance of worker safety and security at workplaces, on account of the stringent regulations and high costs associated with workplace hazards, is anticipated to drive industry growth. The importance of worker safety has significantly increased owing to the growing employment in industries across the Asia Pacific and the Middle East regions. Manufacturers in the market are seeking collaborations, mergers, and acquisitions to expand their product lines and increase production capacity. They are also focusing on increasing their manufacturing facilities to accommodate rising demand from critical end-use industries, such as oil & gas, healthcare, and pharmaceutical.
Nonwoven Disposable Gloves Market Growth & Trends
The global nonwoven disposable gloves market size is anticipated to reach USD 1.72 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 8.7% from 2023 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to witness significant growth on account of the rising product demand from the healthcare industry including hospitals, nursing homes, and home healthcare. Furthermore, an increasing geriatric population across the developed nations is expected to drive the demand for healthcare spending over the forecast period, thereby resulting in industry growth. The global demand for these products is driven by increased healthcare spending as well as growing consumer awareness related to the transmission of pathogens through healthcare workers who are in contact with blood and other body fluids.
Pre-soaped and non-soaped, soft nonwoven disposable gloves are primarily used in medical applications for the professional cleaning of body parts. Non-soaped disposable gloves emerged as the leading segment for their applications in household commercial cleaning and spa applications. The main drivers of increased demand for nonwoven disposable gloves are the high incidence of chronic diseases and hospitalization rates. Growingconsumer awarenessabout the seriousness of diseases and environmental issues is another factor driving product demand. The growing geriatric population is also contributing to arise in hospitalizations, which raises the need for hygiene supplies, such as disposable gloves, to prevent infection.
For instance, the United Nations estimates that there were 703 million people worldwide in 2019 who were aged 65 years or older. In 2050, it is expected that there will be 1.5 billion senior people. By 2050, the percentage is expected to increase to 16%, meaning that 1 in 6 individuals worldwide would be 65 years of age or older. To prevent contamination, regulatory organizations like the National Health Service (NHS) and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OHSA) have developed regulations for the use of gloves in medical applications. Every firm is extremely concerned about employee safety at work. During the forecast period, these elements are anticipated to fuel market expansion. To create cutting-edge and original solutions, manufacturers are looking for partnerships, mergers, and acquisitions.
Also, manufacturers are employing a variety of other strategies including geographic expansion and the creation of new goods to broaden their industrypresence and provide services to end-use sectors. For instance, Top Glove Malaysia, a division of Top Glove Corp. Bhd., received permission to resume exporting and selling gloves to the United States of America in September 2021. According to Customs and Border Protection (CBP), all ports in the United States will accept disposable gloves made by Top Glove in Malaysia. In Feb 2021, Pastel Glove Sdn. Bhd. was granted a manufacturing license by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry Malaysia (MITI) for the creation of medical-grade nitrile- & natural rubber-based examination gloves.
Chemo Graded Nitrile Powder-free Medical Examination Gloves Market Growth & Trends
The global chemo graded nitrile powder-free medical examination gloves market size is expected to reach USD 611.6 million by 2030, expanding at 10.5% CAGR from 2023 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market demand for chemo-graded nitrile powder-free medical examination gloves is likely to increase due to the rising incidence of cancer cases globally. Furthermore, according to WHO, cancer facilities accounted for almost 10 million fatalities in 2020, or roughly one in every six deaths, propelling projected market rise in the coming years.
According to the American Cancer Society, the population's expansion and aging are anticipated to cause 16.3 million cancer deaths and 27.5 million new cases of cancer worldwide by 2040. The burden is expected to increase in the future as a result of risk factors like smoking, eating poorly, being inactive, and having fewer pregnancies in developing countries. Over the projection period, the aforementioned reasons will fuel market demand.
With approximately 10 million recorded deaths from cancer in 2021, it is one of the top causes of death worldwide. In the same year, the WHO South-East Asia region recorded 1.4 million cancer-related fatalities and an estimated 2.2 million new cases, accounting for more than one in ten deaths in the region. Lung cancer caused 10.6% of all cancer-related deaths, followed by breast cancer (9.4%). Additionally, cervical cancer led to the deaths of 8% of patients, liver cancer of 6.6%, and cancer of the lips and mouth of 6.4% patients. In the upcoming years, rising cancer rates in the Asia-Pacific area will increase demand for chemo-graded, nitrile powder-free medical examination gloves.
The significance of early cancer diagnosis has increased as the number of cancer patients rises yearly. There is an increasing need for chemotherapy as a result of early detection and screening. The market will be driven in the future by this aspect. Owing to this demand, the major producers are focusing on creating excellent chemo-graded nitrile gloves. For instance, if evidence-based recommendations were fully implemented, ecancer.org predicts that between 2018 and 2040, the number of patient’s worldwide needing first-line chemotherapy treatment would increase from 9.8 million to 15 million. In turn, it is projected that over the projection period, demand for chemo-graded nitrile powder-free medical examination gloves would increase.
The demand for chemo-graded nitrile powder-free medical examination gloves is rising rapidly as the number of cancer patients is rising across the globe. Manufacturers are focused on launching new high-quality gloves. For instance, in March 2021, V12 Health launched a new product line of chemo-graded nitrile powder-free medical examination gloves and TPET gloves.
