Significant Incremental Opportunity in Global Nitrile Gloves Market

Shortage of raw material, limited global manufacturing capacity of nitrile gloves, and boosted product demand for sterile nitrile gloves are significantly fuelling the growth of the nitrile gloves market, whose incremental opportunity is estimated to expand 10X during the forecast period of 2020 to 2030.

North America is a dominant region in terms of nitrile gloves market share as far as revenue is concerned. This reflects the high standard of hygiene and regulatory compliance requirement by U.S. healthcare regulatory authorities. In addition, a pre-existed import ban on medical nitrile gloves from leading manufacturing countries such as Malyasia has been suspended by the U.S. government amid the high demand situation. These changes in regulations and import policies are expected to lend significant growth to the North America nitrile gloves market.
