Global Medical Gloves Market Dynamics
- Increasing Adoption of Surgical Gloves
The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, such as heart disease and cancer, frequently needing medical procedures and operations for treatment, is expected to boost the product demand in surgical applications. Surgical gloves have higher quality standards and are often used by surgeons and Operating Room (OR) nurses than examination gloves. These gloves are sterile and commonly used for surgical procedures as they have the exact size and are specially designed to provide great precision and tactile sensitivity. Thus, this factor boosts market growth.
- Increasing Rate of Hospital Visits
With the improvement in healthcare structure in developing countries, the awareness associated with medical facilities is also growing. This has resulted in a higher rate of hospital visits and surgeries. Furthermore, hospital visits in emerging and developed countries have also increased. For instance, the number of visits to the accident and emergency department (A&E) has increased constantly over the years in the U.K. According to a 2020 report by the National Health Service, the number has risen from 59,396 in 2013 to 70,230 in 2019. With this increasing rate, the need for medical gloves also increases. Thus, this factor boosts market growth.
- Increasing Demand for Chemotherapy
The demand for chemotherapy is anticipated to increase because of the increasing cancer incidence. According to Cancer Research U.K., there will be around 27.5 million new cancer cases globally annually by 2040, more than 17 million in 2018. With the growing demand for chemotherapy, the demand for chemotherapy-grade gloves is also anticipated to increase. Thus, this factor boosts market growth.
- Increasing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases
The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases has surged the number of hospital visits and re-admissions, which is, in a way, positively impacting the product demand globally. It has been witnessed that there is a growing number of surgical procedures performed in the U.S. such as cesarean section, Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG), appendectomy, carotid endarterectomy, and circumcision which demands the high use of medical gloves. Thus, these are expected to boost the industry demand.
- Side Effects of Medical Gloves
There is a high chance of infection after the use of medical gloves. Numerous adverse skin reactions, including allergic contact dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, and contact urticaria, have been witnessed with these gloves. Wearing gloves for prolonged periods also causes moisture to build up, eventually increasing the risk of fungal infections. Thus, this factor hampers the market growth.
