Increasing number of accidents in workplaces have led the end-use industries to adopt PPE products such as industrial gloves. Chemicals and oil & gas industry will remain the key contributor, as these jobs possess high accident probability owing to usage of flammable substances. Technological progressions in the production process will provide a profitable business outlook for product manufacturers. For instance, The D3O smart elastomer technology enhances the energy absorption capacity of a glove which makes it impact resistant to almost 50% in several manufacturing processes.
 

The top management in most industrial firms is focusing on implementing precautionary measures at the workplace. Stringent regulatory frameworks in the U.S. and the UK are mainly executed in manufacturing companies to avoid any occupational hazard. Accidents involve huge losses in terms of lives, reimbursements to families, legal issues, work disturbance, costs, and infrastructure damages. To reduce these incidents, industry participants are focusing on managing safety solutions by implementing precautionary measures fostering the product demand in the market.
 

Surging industry expansion has propelled the requirement of safety gloves for protecting workers from metal cuts, chemical burn, and high-temperature resources in their daily routine. Mechanical hazards including electric shock, radiation, and microbial contamination risks are associated with the industrial environment. To reduce the high risk of exposure from material and machinery, safety precautions need to be taken by wearing gloves and other protective equipment, thereby boosting the industrial safety gloves market share.
 

The governing authorities of several nations globally have imposed laws suitable for workplace safety. For example, OSHA enlisted a set of standards that are required to be observed by the industries. They also offer information about worker protection for operating in various industrial set-ups, thereby enhancing the execution of laws and augmenting the adoption of safety gloves. One of the most recent trends in industry is the utilization of recyclable & green raw materials for manufacturing safety gloves. A majority of industry players are unceasingly accentuating on the adherence to green production processes & technologies.
 

One of the main challenging factors impacting the growth of the industrial gloves market is the existence of the unorganized sector in the industry. Locally produced gloves are used extensively across various industrial segments due to which the key players in the business have to face stiff competition. Moreover, small enterprises find it economic to procure gloves as they are readily available in the local market, ignoring their lower safety levels. This factor is significantly restraining business growth.
