Industrial Hand Gloves Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- Increasing concern allied with industrial safety and hygiene
Safety gloves are being used more frequently in dangerous contexts such as repair, demolition, erection, regular maintenance, painting, land clearing, trenching, earthmoving, excavating, blasting, drilling, and concreting. For illustration, Sarah Constructions in Australia sent a 'Five Steps to Hand Safety' hand safety awareness poster to all sites. In all Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) and Job Safety Environmental Analyses, the company also asks subcontractors to specify certain safeguards that reduce hand injuries (JSEA). Furthermore, many governments have made it obligatory for the industrial and construction industries to adhere to safety requirements, increasing demand for protective gloves. As a result, these factors are projected to propel the industrial hand gloves market forward.
- Implementation of advanced technology
In recent years, industrial gloves have seen considerable technological improvements. Many companies are introducing enhanced protection gloves to defend against sharp edges, hazardous materials packing, electronics, and handling greasy environments. Expanding vehicle production in emerging nations, in tandem with expected increases in auto sales, is expected to boost demand for gloves in automotive manufacturing facilities, which are used to ensure the safety of workers in assembly lines and other critical functional areas. As a result of these reasons, the industrial hand gloves market is anticipated to grow rapidly.
- Emerging demand of demand for synthetic rubber glove over natural rubber glove
The increasing demand of synthetic rubber gloves over natural rubber gloves is estimated to flourish the growth rate of industrial hand gloves market. Gloves composed of latex were previously used in a variety of applications. However, due to an increase in the number of sensitive people to latex, nitrile gloves have become one of the most popular goods. Nitrile gloves are made of a synthetic rubber that is resistant to oil, fuel, and other chemicals and thus are unlikely to produce allergic reactions.
Furthermore, the rising incidences of accidents in workplaces will be a major factor influencing the growth of the industrial hand gloves market. Also, rising urbanization, and increasing level of disposable income will drive market value growth. Also, swift industrialization and strict government regulations for workforce safety will cushion the growth rate of industrial hand gloves market.
- Upsurge in the level of foreign direct investment (FDI)
The need for hand protective gloves has increased as a result of increased foreign direct investment. Designers, operators, and manufacturers of process equipment have everyday challenges in transferring, mixing, separating, distilling, heating, combusting, reacting, storing, packaging, and extending the life of the roughly 70,000 items that the chemical and processing industries supply. Industrial gloves will be in higher demand as process equipment becomes more active. This is expected to boost the new market opportunities during the forecast period of 2022-2029.
Moreover, rise in strategic collaborations and emerging new markets will act as market drivers and further boost beneficial opportunities for the market's growth rate. Along with this, the constant developments in technologies and emerging new markets will provide new market opportunities in coming years.
- Side effects of toxic chemical reactions
The negative impact of toxic chemical reactions will further obstruct the growth rate of market. Latex allergies can be a major concern, and they can even be fatal. Individuals with latex allergies should avoid wearing latex gloves in the future. Furthermore, direct contact with allergic latex proteins in latex glove products might cause allergic skin problems. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 8 to 12 percent of healthcare workers in the United States are latex-sensitive. About 10% of industrial rubber workers who are exposed to high levels of latex for long periods of time have an allergic reaction. As a result, these factors are projected to limit the growth of the industrial hand gloves market.
On the other hand, lack of awareness about the use of industrial gloves and the high cost associated with the product and its manufacturing will pose major challenges to the growth of industrial hand gloves market. Additionally, the availability of local and inexpensive products will restrain and further impede the growth rate of market during the forecast period of 2022-2029.

COVID-19 Impact on Industrial Hand Gloves Market
Over the projected period, the industrial hand gloves market is expected to be constrained by the COVID-19 outbreak. COVID-19, a new coronavirus, was identified as the causal agent in the pneumonia cases. This virus spread quickly over the world, killing a large number of people. COVID-19 was labelled a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) in March 2020, and rigorous measures to prevent the disease's spread were recommended. Since then, the pandemic has delayed the expansion of the industrial automation sector and disrupted the supply chain. Furthermore, governments in many nations have imposed nationwide lockdowns to halt the spread of COVID-19. Similarly, various automation organizations in numerous nations throughout the world were having difficulty continuing their supply chain activities. The supply chain slowness hampered the industrial hand gloves market. Due to the uncertainty and lack of revenue during the lockdown, 30.0 percent -70.0 percent of this sector's pre-COVID-19 personnel has returned to their hometowns. However, the industrial hand gloves market is likely to restore its growth as respective government bodies lifted the enforced lockdown limitations. Due to the uncertainty and lack of revenue during the lockdown, 30.0 percent -70.0 percent of this sector's pre-COVID-19 personnel has returned to their hometowns. However, the industrial hand gloves market is likely to restore its growth as respective government bodies lifted the enforced lockdown limitations. The percent of trained labour is increased at the workplaces. Along with this, the demand as well as supply of industrial hand gloves market is also increased after COVID-19 in various regions across the globe.
