Impact of COVID-19 on the medical gloves market

The global medical gloves market has changed since the outbreak of the pandemic as it changed the perspective on the transmission of risk. The usefulness of medical gloves having become an essential source of protection, it has now spread to the general population. As a result, it has become an essential source of protection against COVID-19 infection, both for frontline warriors and the general public. The UN report says that with the rise of COVID-19, the UN and its alliances have ensured that personal protective equipment and other life-saving supplies reach frontline workers and ordinary people at a rate higher. In early April 2020, the UN announced the launch of the COVID-19 Supply Chain Working Group to massively scale up the procurement and delivery of PPE and other biomedical equipment.

In addition, in April 2020, the UN launched an urgent appeal for US $ 350 million to rapidly expand common logistics services. Apart from that, the World Health Organization (WHO) report states that nearly half a million sets of PPE have been supplied to 47 countries. In addition, based on WHO modeling, approximately 76 million examination gloves were in demand. These were managed by WHO in collaboration with government, industry players and the pandemic supply chain network to increase production and secure allocations for severely affected countries and to high risk. To meet such accelerated demand, the WHO has estimated that industry needs to increase manufacturing by nearly 40%.

Nitrile butadiene rubber accounted for US $ 1,187.9 million in 2020 with a compound annual growth rate of 8.7% during the analysis period of 2021 to 2028

On the basis of the product, the nitrile butadiene rubber segment will dominate the overall medical gloves market with maximum share during the analysis period of 2021 to 2028. As the nitrile butadiene rubber is composed of synthetic latex with milky color, it is widely used in rubber drops intended for medical purposes and laboratory gloves. These latexes have excellent properties coupled with good tensile strength, which contributes significantly to fueling the demand for NBR in the healthcare industry.

On the basis of the type of use, the reusable gloves segment accounted for a significant share in 2020 with a growth rate of around 7% during the projected period of 2021 to 2028

As government participation plays a vital role for the utility of reusable gloves, it has gained significant importance in the market. The Health Care Without Harm report states that decontamination of single-use protective clothing is, however, only an emergency practice and does not solve the shortage crisis. Therefore, hospitals and buyers should focus their efforts on adopting safe and reusable medical gloves by meeting the environmental and social criteria of the products. In addition, they should focus on supporting innovation towards more durable and reusable items.
