Latex Medical Disposables Market By Product (Latex Gloves, Latex Urethral Catheters, Latex Foley Tray, Latex Probe Cover), By End- User Type (Hospital, Private Clinics, Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASCS), Diagnostic Centers) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

Latex medical disposable products such as gloves, probe covers, urethral catheters, etc., are made from natural rubber. Latex gloves provide better comfort and durability and are used for surgical and examination purposes. Due to their tactile sensitivity and appropriate fit to the hand, disposable latex gloves have been in huge demand. However, due to the allergies caused by latex, the demand for disposable latex gloves is presently declining. This high risk associated with latex gloves has been reduced after the introduction of powder-free gloves.

The urethral catheter market is growing on account of rising urinary disorders and increasing surgical procedures. Among all the urethral catheter types, the foley catheter segment is moderately growing and expected to grow more over the upcoming years. The increasing outbreak of infectious or contagious diseases has augmented the usage of latex gloves, which in turn drives the global latex medical disposable market. Among the major driving forces of the latex medical disposable market are the growing geriatric population, increasing chronic diseases, and surgical intervention. Rising health awareness among the public also fuels the growth of the latex medical disposable market. Various initiatives have been undertaken by organizations like the WHO and CDC for hand hygiene and other safety purposes to drive the growth of the global latex medical disposable market.

The tactility and cost-effectiveness made the latex gloves preferable before the alternative products came onto the market and the latex glove market started to dwindle. The major restraint on the latex medical disposable market is allergies or skin dermatitis caused by the use of latex medical disposables. Therefore, the emerging popularity of alternatives made up of synthetic material poses challenges to the growth of the latex medical disposables market.

Medical gloves act as a barrier to avoid any infection caused when they come into contact with contaminants in any wound, blood, or body fluids. Latex gloves, made up of natural rubber, are predicted to contribute a major share of the latex medical disposable market. In developing countries, latex gloves are mostly utilized, whereas the more innovative synthetic gloves are in huge demand in developed nations. Latex gloves are way better in terms of protection than any synthetic gloves, as the chances of leakage are much lower. The high lubricant nature of latex gloves makes them a popular choice for disposable medical gloves. The higher demand for latex gloves in healthcare is due to their comfort and a better grip while performing surgery.

Although latex gloves are the gold standard for disposable medical gloves and are approved worldwide, their usage and preference are declining due to the allergies caused by the latex or powder used in latex gloves, which in turn poses some challenges to the growth of latex medical disposable products.
