Disposable gloves refer to single-use hand protection gloves, which help in preventing cross-contamination and minimizing contact with pathogens and other external agents like dirt and humidity. They are made from natural rubber, nitrile, vinyl, neoprene and polyethylene materials that have anti-tear properties and provide higher resistance against chemicals. Owing to these benefits, disposable gloves are increasingly being used during medical examinations, surgical procedures, food handling, chemical processes, etc. These gloves are also used for managing everyday spills and messes in and around the house.
The demand for disposable gloves has been rising across various industry verticals ranging from pharmaceutical, automotive and chemical to food and beverage, and personal care. In the healthcare industry, medical practitioners use these gloves while examining patients and performing surgical procedures to avoid cross-contamination and secure both patients and doctors from infections. These gloves are also used by tattoo artists and spa and salon executives to maintain a hygienic environment. Apart from this, the rising prevalence of several diseases and increasing awareness among consumers about safety, health and hygiene have positively influenced the growth of the market.
Several manufacturers are now integrating nitrile and latex materials to produce gloves using a triple-dip coating technique. This technology results in high glove strength, durability and effortless donning. They are also focusing on developing customized gloves, such as using an exclusive hand mold and independent thumb design that allows an anatomical fit and natural hand movement. Moreover, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) between the leading firms are providing a positive impact on the industry. For instance, Ansell Limited, an Australia-based provider of safety protection solutions, has acquired Ringers Gloves, a specialty impact glove supplier, to expand their business.
