(PharmaNewsWire.Com, September 13, 2021 ) Nitrile Gloves Market size is estimated at $3.9 billion in 2020, projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.8% during the forecast period 2021-2026. Nitrile gloves are latex protein-free, which makes them more appealing to people with latex allergies. Synthetic rubber is also used in their manufacturing, which helps to provide high strength, longevity, and improved flexibility, as well as the ability to minimize hand fatigue, provides a comfortable fit, and low friction. The latest emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to be a significant factor in driving global demand. The increasing prevalence of COVID-19 in the country has heightened demand, particularly in the healthcare industry, to prevent further dissemination. Moreover, the nitrile glove industry is growing owing to a growing aging populations and stricter health regulations. Manufacturers of gloves have begun to incorporate innovations such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data Analytics into their manufacturing processes in order to improve overall quality and capabilities. Globus Ltd, for instance, introduced GREEN-DEX, the world's first biodegradable nitrile disposable gloves. GREEN-DEX biodegrades in biologically active landfills, making it a great single-use hand safety option that also saves money on recycling. As a result, the product demand to combat the spread of the coronavirus, technical advances, Synthetic material and increasing R&D efforts by industry titans are all driving the nitrile gloves market forward.
Nitrile Gloves Market Segment Analysis – By Product Type:
Based on Product Type, Disposable Gloves Segment accounted for the largest revenue market share of around 75% in 2020 and is also anticipated to grow with the fastest CAGR. Prior to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an increase in demand for single-use gloves across all end-use industries. Disposable gloves also help to prevent the spread of pathogens and germs in medical facilities, which drives demand in the medical and healthcare industries.Healthcare staff prefers disposable gloves to prevent cross-contamination during treatment or inspection driving the Nitrile Gloves Industry. Durable Gloves segment is anticipated to grow with the second fastest CAGR of 14.8% in the forecast period 2021-2026. The long-lasting product is made to be used in harsh conditions and several times. They have advantages like longevity, strength, synthetic material, latex protein, low waste generation, and other environmental advantages. These gloves are thicker than disposable gloves, so they last longer and don’t break as easily, providing better hand security, especially in a heavy-duty work setting. Furthermore, they must be washed more often after each use, making them less convenient than disposable gloves, driving the Nitrile Gloves Industry.
Based on Type, Powdered-Free accounted for the largest revenue market share in 2020 as powder-free gloves are commonly used in the medical and healthcare industries, where disposable gloves are in high demand and growing rapidly following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Latex protein Powder-free nitrile gloves are estimated to hold the largest the market owing to their rising popularity in industries such as food processing, medical and chemical. Furthermore, several authoritarian regimes are supposed to benefit the powder-free segment. Powdered is projected to witness the fastest CAGR of 14.3% during the forecast period 2021-2026. Cornstarch and calcium carbonate are used to powder nitrile gloves. Cornstarch powder, which is commonly used, aids in quick donning, improved grip, and moisture reduction. Powdered nitrile gloves aren’t known to cause allergies driving the segment growth. However, if worn for an extended period of time, these gloves can cause skin sensitivities or allergies. The United States Food and Drug Administration banned the manufacture, sale, and distribution of powdered patient inspection and surgeon gloves on January 19, 2017. While powdered gloves for industrial applications have not been banned by the FDA, they are gradually being phased out, which is expected to have a negative effect on the segment.
Nitrile Gloves Market Segment Analysis – By Geography:
Based on Geography, North America Nitrile Gloves Market accounted for the 38% revenue share in 2020. This is mainly attributable to growing public health concerns and increased demand for disposable gloves. Latex Protein Gloves used for medical purposes have been approved by the FDA. In North America, these food gloves are approved for food handling and preparation. The FDA has approved it for use in food service and food manufacturing in the United States, and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has approved it for use in Canada. The rise is expected to be fueled by factors such as raising healthcare costs, an aging population, and increased knowledge of healthcare-acquired infections is accelerating Nitrile Gloves Industry expansion across the region. Asia-Pacific is predicted to be the fastest growing region during the forecast period 2021- 2026. This is primarily due to increased healthcare spending, especially in China, Japan, India, and South Korea. In addition, the awareness of safety and cleanliness among patients and health care professionals is fuelling the demand for nitrile medical gloves.
Nitrile Gloves Market Drivers
The Growing Awareness Among People Related To Contagious Diseases & Hygiene:
The demand for nitrile gloves is increasing as a result of growing hygiene awareness. Keeping hands clean is one of the preventive steps for infection prevention. Healthcare facilities just sanitize their hands about half of the time, according to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention. If the importance of hygiene at the workplace rises, the market for nitrile medical gloves is expected to rise as well. The number of geriatric patients is expected to rise dramatically as the geriatric population grows, with wound closure driving the Nitrile Gloves Industry. The latex protein free gloves product demand is growing due to an increase in the number of infectious diseases around the world. Health tests may be used to identify and diagnose contagious diseases. An increasing number of infectious diseases, as well as improved healthcare services, are all contributing to the Nitrile Gloves Market rapid growth.
Strict Regulations On Polymer Products Imposed By Government
To ensure the safety of nitrile gloves products, the FDA in the United States has pressed manufacturers to publish information on the long-term health impacts of inorganic compounds in nitrile gloves, especially hormonal effects and contributors to anti-biotic resistant bacteria. The nitrile gloves are made of polymer, also known as plastic, which pollutes the land and water in significant amounts. Plastic components endanger the lives of animals on land and in water, and chemicals released by waste plastic goods penetrate the soil, making it infertile, stifling the Nitrile Gloves Market's expansion.
Nitrile Gloves Market Landscape:
The Nitrile Gloves Market's main strategies include product launches, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and regional expansion. Nitrile Gloves Market top 10 companies are Ammex Corporation, Synthomer plc, Dynarex Corporation, Hartalega Holdings Bhd., Top Glove Corporation Bhd., Ansell Ltd., Supermax Corporation Bhd., Owens & Minor Inc., Comfort Gloves Bhd. and Medicom.
