This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Medical Gloves Market is accounted for $5.89 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach $12.90 billion by 2027 growing at a CAGR of 9.1% during the forecast period. Some of the key factors propelling the market growth include increasing incidences of acute and chronic diseases, stringent regulations about the usage of personal protective equipment (PPE), increasing concerns about safety and sanitation, and rising number of hospitals in developing countries. However, increasing price competition among manufacturers is likely to hamper the market.

Medical gloves are gloves that one use gloves and should preferably be disposed of after just one use specially when dealing with bacterial culture or worn during surgeries. These gloves are manufactured out of various kinds of polymers. These products are available either in the powdered or in the non-powdered form or are powdered with cornstarch to lubricate them so that it becomes easier for one to put on. Medical gloves are majorly used in healthcare facilities such as hospitals, clinics, ambulatory surgical centers, diagnostic centers among others. These gloves are used during medical examinations and surgical procedures in order to help prevent any cross-contamination between the healthcare personnel and patients.

By form type, the powdered medical gloves segment is prejected to grow at the significant growth during the forecast period. These gloves have corn-starch added that allows the easy donning and removal of the gloves. Moreover, it helps to avoid the gloves from sticking together. However, the U.S. FDA banned the use of powdered medical gloves owing to air borne allergic reactions that may affect the healthcare workers health. Hence, the market for powdered gloves will witness steady decline in future.

On the basis of geography, medical gloves market in Asia Pacific region is poised to grow at the significant rate during the forecast period owing to improving healthcare infrastructure and rising awareness about the safety and hygiene among people in the region. Furthermore, emerging countries such as India and China provides immense growth opportunities to the medical gloves manufacturers.
