Disposable Gloves to Remain Dominant Owing to Hygiene Issues

Industrial gloves market is segmented by type into disposable and reusable gloves. Reusable gloves need to be sterilized and decontaminated time to time. In an industry, this adds to the work process. In production industries such as pharmaceuticals, chemicals, healthcare, and food, wherein gloves need to removed and put back on frequently, it is not feasible to use reusable gloves. This is the primary factor behind the popularity of disposable gloves- making them the leading market segment.

The market for industrial gloves in Asia Pacific is predicted to be promising over the forecast period. On account of the food and beverage industry, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals, industrial gloves are slated to witness high demand. Increase in stringent worker safety mandates in this region is also expected to contribute to the fast growth of the region. However, North America and Europe are prognosticated to hold over 60% of the market revenue over the forecast duration, due to considerable surge in chemical and pharmaceutical businesses.

Rise of End-Use Industries Provide Ample Market Opportunity

The rise of industrial gloves usage across Europe and North America is foretold to be a key factor of the global market growth as well. These regions have recorded almost two-third of the total market revenue, and the increasing awareness of worker safety is expected to aid in maintaining the regions market position.

The market could face some challenges in the form of lower awareness levels, and threat of local market players. The high cost of international products may lead to preference to lower quality and local product usage. Emerging economies may fall prey to lower cost products and hamper the overall market growth.
