Highest Growing Market
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Disposable Gloves Market is accounted for $13.27 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $20.82 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, there is an increasing need for disposable gloves, particularly from the healthcare sector. This demand is projected to expand, along with consumer awareness of healthcare-associated diseases. Several causes, including rising investments in the public and private sectors, rising population, a large influx of migrants, and an increasing senior population, are expected to contribute to the substantial growth of the healthcare industry in major developing economies.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally nine million people were infected with tuberculosis (TB) and 1.5 million died due to the disease. According to the National Diabetes Statistics Report, in 2020, around 37.3 million people in the United States were found to have diabetes; around 96 million adults were found to have pre-diabetes.
Increasing Demand in Healthcare Sector
The market is expanding as a result of rising product demand in the medical and healthcare, pharmaceutical, automotive finishing, chemical, and oil & gas industries. Furthermore, due to a number of variables including an increase in public and private sector investments, population expansion, and an increase in the senior population, the healthcare sector is anticipated to experience significant growth in key developing nations as well. Additionally, a rise in healthcare spending is likely to promote the expansion of the healthcare sector, which is anticipated to support product demand.
The market for disposable gloves is experiencing market elements including a lack of funding and reduced awareness, which will hinder the market's ability to grow in accordance with the forecast period that is currently in progress and soon to come to a close. Additionally, during the anticipated time, the disposable glove market will experience issues including rising raw material costs and diminished affordability for market participants.
Rising awareness regarding the importance of raw materials
The investments in research and development of the key market players are predicted to increase due to growing knowledge of the value of raw materials in delivering high heat resistance, comfort, elasticity, and lightweight qualities. By incorporating cutting-edge add-ons to the current designs, these projects seek to increase the multi-functionality of disposable gloves and broaden the range of applications for them. Due to the high cost of raw materials and complicated manufacturing processes, the production of disposable gloves requires a significant amount of money. In order to produce disposable gloves, the market's major raw material suppliers have integrated along the value chain, which is anticipated to increase market competition.
Raw material sources are highly concentrated
The majority of the raw materials, including latex, required to make disposable gloves are produced in Asian nations. Since the raw material supply is so concentrated, any disruption there might have a large impact on practically all of the stakeholders throughout the value chain. For instance, Top Glove, one of the biggest glove producers with 28 plants and headquarters in Malaysia, had to halt manufacturing. Due to the fact that Top Glove is a prominent glove producer, this action resulted in lengthier lead times for orders and additional delivery delays, which had an enormous impact on the number of customers. Such occurrences may have a detrimental effect on worldwide demand and restrain market expansion.
Due to the COVID-19, there is currently a global scarcity of PPE, including disposable gloves among other items. Prices for disposable gloves and other protective equipment skyrocketed during the early stages of the pandemic as a result of supply chain disruptions brought on by the global lockdown regulations. Several businesses stepped forward and adapted their production line to make PPE kits for frontline employees in order to meet the pandemic's extraordinary demand. To fulfil the demand for necessary disposable gloves, the market's current participants increased their glove production capacity. The general public now frequently uses the gloves that were formerly only used by healthcare professionals.
The rubber latex segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The rubber latex segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. The most popular types of gloves on the market are latex gloves. These kinds of gloves are incredibly flexible and may readily conform to the shape of your hand for a snug fit. They are resistant to tears and punctures due to the suppleness and strength of natural rubber latex. Gloves made of natural rubber latex are frequently used in applications that call for materials that are waterproof and chemically resistant. Hands are shielded from biological threats like bacteria, viruses, and even bodily fluids. Additionally, they can offer defence against water-based chemicals and typical cleaning supplies like detergents and alcohols. These essential characteristics make natural rubber latex gloves an excellent option for laboratory work, dental work, surgical and medical applications, among other things.
The healthcare & medical segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The healthcare & medical segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period. During medical examinations and procedures, disposable gloves used in the healthcare & medical sector are essential for preventing the spread of infection or illness to both the wearer and the patient. Exam gloves are still a crucial component of the infection prevention plan. Additionally, there is a greater need for better healthcare facilities due to the rise in chronic diseases and the ageing of the global population. In order to handle the ageing population, both established and emerging regions have increased the number of healthcare institutions. This is thus anticipated to fuel market expansion.
Region with highest share:
Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to increasing demand in the healthcare sector. More investment is anticipated in the region's healthcare sector as a result of the region's ageing population and constantly shifting demographics. Additionally, a number of overseas patients have been drawn to some emerging nations' top-notch medical institutions by the rapidly growing medical tourism industry.
Region with highest CAGR:
Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period. The COVID-19 epidemic has greatly increased the demand for disposable gloves in the area. The region's market is expected to increase favourably as a result of rising healthcare spending, an ageing population, and greater public awareness of healthcare-acquired infections. The reform plan includes investments in new facilities as well as the infrastructure and modernization of the public healthcare system. The demand for medical devices and equipment is anticipated to increase as a result of these advances.
