Protective Gloves Market by Material (Latex, Nitrile, Neoprene, Leather), Type (Re-Usable, Disposable), Application (Chemical, Mechanical, Biological), End-Use Industry (Healthcare, Manufacturing, Food & Beverage, Oil & Gas) - Global Forecast to 2022

The global protective gloves market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2017 to 2022
The global protective gloves market is projected to reach USD 11.26 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2017 to 2022. Increasing awareness about industrial safety and hygiene at workplaces and the growing demand for disposable healthcare gloves are expected to drive the protective gloves market during the forecast period. However, concerns related to skin allergies and increasing automation in end-use industries are expected to affect the sales of protective gloves.

The latex segment is the largest material segment of the global protective gloves market
Based on material, the latex segment accounted for the largest share of the global protective gloves market in 2016. This large share is mainly attributed to the increased use of biodegradable and low-priced rubber gloves in healthcare, food & beverage, manufacturing, construction, transportation, and oil & gas industries.

The re-usable segment is the largest type segment of the global protective gloves market
Based on type, the re-usable segment is projected to lead the market between 2017 and 2022. This segment’s growth is mainly driven by the need for protection against dangerous chemicals, fluids, sharp edges, electrical & thermal insulation, abrasion, cold, and radiation.

The chemical segment is the largest application segment of the global protective gloves market
Based on application, the chemical segment is projected to lead the market between 2017 and 2022. Chemical protective gloves are used to provide protection against organic acids, inorganic acids, alkalis, salt solutions, aromatic hydrocarbons, alcohol, amines, and other miscellaneous chemicals.

Healthcare is the largest end-use industry segment of the global protective gloves market
Based on end-use industry, the healthcare segment is projected to lead the market between 2017 and 2022. Protective gloves are used in the healthcare industry to provide protection against biological hazards, such as bacteria, blood or body fluid contamination, and radiation. The high demand for disposable protective gloves in this end-use industry is expected to drive the market of protective gloves between 2017 and 2022.

North America to be the largest protective gloves market during the forecast period
The North American region is expected to lead the global protective gloves market between 2017 and 2022. The US is the key consumer of protective gloves in North America. Huge investments by governments and private companies to follow the PPE standards at workplaces increase the demand for protective gloves in North America.
