Disposable gloves are used in healthcare practices and to maintain hygiene standards according to WHO regulations and guidelines. Rising awareness of hygiene and the need to protect product quality, and the health and safety of healthcare practitioners and patients are the key factors increasing the demand for disposable gloves. Traditionally, latex gloves (made from natural rubber) are used and still dominate the disposable glove market. Gloves made from nitrile, vinyl, polyvinyl chloride, and neoprene are also rapidly adopted, having an advantage over conventional latex gloves. Non-powdered disposable gloves are becoming increasingly preferred over powdered products, which may cause irritation and inflammation. Non-powdered gloves have a high adoption rate due to their fewer side effects. The disposable glove market is being driven by the prevention and control of pandemics and nosocomial infections.

Based on the type of material, the global disposable glove market is segmented as follows:

  • Latex
  • Vinyl
  • Nitrile
  • Others (polyethylene, neoprene)

Traditional gloves are made from natural rubber (latex), which is the most widely used material. Thus, latex occupies the largest share of the disposable glove market. Latex gloves are commonly used because they are readily available, have good elasticity, and are inexpensive. Nitrile and vinyl gloves are the next fast-growing markets. Nitrile gloves are generally recommended for use in ICUs and emergency units; they are also used in pharmacy labs when dealing with harsh chemicals. These glove types are soft, durable, and strong. With the advent of technology, vinyl gloves have improved in terms of strength, comfort, and tactile sensitivity. It is most preferred in clinical work as it is latex-free and cost-effective. Polyethylene gloves are also considered to be a fast-growing segment.

The global disposable glove market is classified into the following types:

  • Powdered Gloves
  • Non-powdered gloves

In powdered disposable gloves, the powder acts as a lubricant, making them easier to wear. However, the powder earlier used caused reactions and was found to be toxic. Corn starch was used, as it contains non-irritating ingredients. The powdered form causes inflammation, and corn starch may also have side effects. The FDA has put a ban on powdered gloves for medical use; even the U.K. and Germany do not allow their use. Thus, new standard non-powdered gloves are available on the market and are increasingly being used. Non-powdered gloves are being adopted widely, dominate the disposable market, and are anticipated to grow in the forecast period.

For the purpose of this study, the global disposable glove market is geographically categorized into:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)

In 2016, North America dominated the global disposable gloves market. The growth drivers for the North American market are technological advancement, an increase in demand for disposable gloves in healthcare, food processing, and personal care, and the need to prevent and control nosocomial infections. Europe is currently the second largest market after North America. But developing countries showing a rapid growth in healthcare structure, improving infrastructure, health reforms and regulation by the government, and an increase in disposable income would outgrow the European market in years to come. Thus, emerging economies show potential growth in the forecast period. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing disposable glove market, with increasing awareness of health and hygiene, stringent regulation in terms of health safety and hygiene, and overall increasing investment in healthcare.
