Surgical Gloves Market: Overview
Gloves have become an indispensable part of surgeries for reducing the transfer of pathogens among operative team and to patients. Several guidelines and reviews have comprehensively investigated the efficacy of surgical gloves in reducing the number of surgical site infections in healthcare professionals and the patient population. Technological advances in the surgical gloves market have picked up pace on the back of these developments. Key materials used in making surgical gloves are nitrile, neoprene, latex, and vinyl. Each has its own strength and limitations depending on the barrier leakage ability and the sensitivity to the hands of the surgeon.
Some of the agencies at the forefront are Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA)/Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and the WHO. They have detailed out guidelines on maintaining the integrity of surgical gloves in different gloving methods. These norms have pivoted the development of new gloving practices on one hand, while providing useful guidelines for manufacturers in the surgical gloves market.

Surgical Gloves Market: Key Trends
The strides in the surgical gloves market, both in relation to the material used and design tailored for the purpose, are boosted by a growing body of systematic studies on the outcome of the gloving practice in SSI and surgical cross infections.
The evolution of new products in the surgical gloves market hinges on the changing nature of transference of bloodborne pathogens from patients to healthcare workers (HCWs). Several scientific studies have helped share the recommendations in this regard. A case in point is Cochrane systematic review of 30 trials.
The focus of healthcare institutions on preventing the surgical site infections continues to stimulate constant improvements in gloves materials. Both randomized and controlled trials and the overarching regulations have driven these changes in the surgical gloves market. Growing numbers of both inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures is a key trend that is a bellwether for new growth avenues for manufacturers and vendors in the surgical gloves market.

Surgical Gloves Market: Competitive Analysis and Key Developments
A number of retrospective studies and observational studies have taken a closer look at the double gloving and the use of single gloving to assess the efficacy of surgical gloves in reducing SSI. Examples are couples of studies conducted in adults undergoing neurosurgery and hernia repair in the past two decades. Another case in point is when researchers conducted randomized controlled trials in vascular prosthesis in synthetic vascular graft surgery.
Over the past few years, there have been some useful results related to perforation indicator systems of gloves of different materials in surgical setting. These have paved way to new demand potential in the surgical gloves market. Interestingly, in recent times aside from the efficacy of surgical gloves, their role in affecting the tactile sensitivity have also come into question. A recent case in point is the findings revealed in the study done in Technical University of Munich, Germany and Ospedale Regionale di Lugano, Switzerland, in 2020. The study found that surgical gloves can negatively affect to sensibility of the hand of the surgeon. This might affect their precision, and hence the surgical outcome.
Surgical Gloves Market: Regional Assessment
The surgical gloves market is witnessing new avenues in North America and Europe on the back of new technology trends such as material innovation and growing body of systematic studies on the role of gloves in reducing the incidence of SSIs. Gloves wearing habits in surgical settings in these regions have evolved considerably. Asia Pacific is also expected to endow stakeholders in the surgical gloves market some new avenues. The pace of adoption of different gloves in the healthcare industry in Asia is bolstered by the growing awareness about the risk of SSIs and their effect on healthcare workers.
