Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Nitrile Gloves Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Nitrile Gloves Market: Hartalega Holdings, Kossan Rubber Industries, Supermax, Synthomer and Top Glove

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Adams Gloves, Adventa, Ansell Healthcare, Barber Healthcare, Cardinal Health, Carolina Glove, Dynarex, Illinois Glove, Kimberly-Clark, Microflex, Renco, Riverstone Holdings, Rubberex, Semperit, Southern Glove, Synthomer and United Glove

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “As wearers are facing latex allergies, consumers are moving toward the use of nitrile gloves. Nitrile gloves are more puncture resistant than natural rubber gloves and have better properties such as flexibility and durability. Natural gloves are not as resistant to chemicals, when compared to nitrile gloves. Nitrile gloves provide better chemical and biohazard protection and have a better shelf life. Also, natural rubber is subject to cost fluctuations, which will affect the cost of the product. Thus, the nitrile gloves market is eating away the market share of natural rubber gloves.”

According to the report, latex gloves are causing allergies in certain users, which is the major reason for the shift to synthetic gloves made from nitrile. Almost 6% of consumers are allergic to the protein present in the latex, mainly witnessed in the US. In China, almost 9% of nurses are at a high risk of contracting latex-related allergies. Consumers are using nitrile gloves to take necessary measures against outbreaks of allergies and diseases. Nitrile gloves are found to be lighter than latex gloves, thus increasing the demand for and use of nitrile gloves in the market.Further, the report states that volatility in crude oil prices is one of the major challenges faced by the global nitrile gloves market.
