Medical Nitrile Gloves Market

Medical Nitrile Gloves Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2020 - 2030

Global Medical Nitrile Gloves Market: Introduction

Nitrile, or acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR), is a material made of organic chemicals. Nitrile gloves do not contain latex proteins and have a minimal content of vulcanisation accelerators. Gloves are personal protective equipment that are utilized to protect the wearer and the patient from the spread of infection or illness during medical procedures and examinations. The gloves must also have a high puncture resistance, since most medical professionals work with scalpels, surgical tools, and needles. The gloves are meant to serve specific tasks while protecting the skin and preventing cross-contamination. These gloves are worn by surgeons and other health professionals who have direct contact with blood, infections, sharp tools, and other harmful objects and substances that could cause extreme illness or infection.

Key Drivers of Global Medical Nitrile Gloves Market

Increase in number of plastic and cosmetic surgeries, burns, trauma, and accidents drive the market

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ annual plastic surgery procedural statistics, 17.5 million surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2017, an increase of 2% over that in 2016. These statistics also reveal a rise in new trends in body-shaping procedures, with a spike in non-invasive fat reduction as well as surgeries such as breast augmentations. An estimated 1.2 million people are killed in road crashes each year, and as many as 50 million are injured, occupying 30% to 70% of orthopedic beds in hospitals in developing countries. Nearly 30 million children and adolescents participate in youth sports in the U.S. The diagnosis of all these factors in a diagnostic center or hospitals are done frequently. Doctors and the medical staff make sure to wear gloves, which builds a safety barrier between the patients and the medical staff during examinations and wound dressings to avoid infections and cross contamination.

 Increase in incidence of chronic wound drives demand for wound closure devices

Chronic wounds are often termed ulcers and can be defined as wounds with a full thickness in depth and a slow healing tendency. It is estimated that 1% to 2 % of the population in developed countries would experience a chronic wound during their lifetime. Dramatic increase in the geriatric population is projected to increase the number of geriatric patients, as wound closure also drive the market. Complications of chronic wounds include infection such as cellulitis and infective venous eczema, gangrene, hemorrhage, and lower-extremity amputations. Chronic wounds lead to disability, which worsens wound outcomes, resulting in a vicious cycle. Doctors and the medical staff are advised to wear gloves and other personal protective equipment to avoid infections. This factor drives the market.
