Safety regulations and rules – a prominent growth driver in North America

North America is a developed region with abundant end-use industries. The governments in this region are strict and have stringent regulations for the safety of labor and working individuals. If any irregularities are found then the employer is charged with heavy penalties and on top of that, it also creates a bad image for the company among consumers and in the market. These strict government policies are expected to drive the demand for industrial gloves in all end-use industries over the forecast period.

Automation and technology will affect the North America industrial gloves market adversely

Robots have been taking over American jobs and very soon there will be no humans working in manufacturing and other end-use industries. Subsequently, the demand for all the personal protective equipment, including industrial gloves will be limited to certain specific operations. The National Bureau of Economic Research estimates that hundreds of thousands of jobs have been side-lined by automation in the U.S. in recent decades.

In fact, the paper estimates roughly three jobs have been eliminated in the U.S. for each individual industrial robot introduced into the labor market – potentially setting the stage for even more significant job losses as workplace technology deepens its roots going forward.

Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Boston University surveyed robots' impact on the U.S. labor market between 1990 and 2007, thereby avoiding data abnormalities from the mass job losses seen during the Great Recession.

They have found large and robust negative effects of robots on employment and wages across local economies impacted by automation. Increased automation in all end-use industries will reduce human efforts and increase accuracy considerably, but it will also affect employment and use of personal protective equipment, such as industrial gloves over the forecast period.
