Disposable Gloves to Remain High in Demand on Account of their Low Price

Based on product, the dominance is expected to be with the disposable gloves segment through the course of the forecast period. It held nearly 75.4% of the Asia Pacific industrial gloves market in 2016. Manufacturing cost for the same is low compared to its re-usable counterparts. This is a key factor contributing towards the segment’s growth, as it allows producers to maintain a lower price point thus attracting a large number of consumers.

Based on materials, rubber dominated the industrial gloves market in 2016 and is expected to remain the lead through the forecast period. Rubber gloves, also known as latex gloves are natural material which is made from rubber. Some of the key attributes of rubber gloves include its proper fitting, high level of touch sensitivity, good for wearing for a long period of time, durable against high-risk situations that involves infectious materials, cost effective, bio-degradable, and has a high level of elasticity among others. However, rubber has several adverse effects on human health such as irritant dermatitis, which is not considered extremely dangerous if neglected. It can cause cracks in the skin through which latex particles infiltrate, thus creating latex allergies on the individual. Delayed cutaneous hyper sensitivity is another effect caused due to extensive use of rubber/latex gloves which is manifested within 6 to 48 hours post exposure to latex particles. Due to these factors, this particular material is expected to lose demand in the future.

Based on application, chemicals and pharmaceuticals accounted for the dominant share in 2016. Both industries are expected to maintain their respective positions throughout the forecast period. Workers in chemicals as well as pharmaceutical industries are exposed to hazardous chemicals and thus require high quality industrial protective gears. Also governments keep a strict vigil on these industries to ensure workers’ health and safety. Spurred by this, the market is expected to witness high demand for industrial gloves from chemicals and pharmaceutical industries.

By country, Malaysia has emerged as the most lucrative market for industrial gloves in Asia Pacific. It held over 49.9% of the market in 2016. The country is expected to remain dominant through the forecast period. The flourishing rubber industry will support growth of the industrial gloves market in Malaysia in the coming years. Besides this, China and Thailand are expected to hold considerable share in the market. Industrialization witnessed in these nations will drive the industrial gloves market.
