Increasing consciousness to improve labor protection from accidental risk at workplace is fueling industrial safety gloves market growth. High dexterity occupations in the construction, automotive, mining, chemical, and oil & power industry are stimulating market expansion. Improved monitoring setup to enhance workplace protection and reduce occupational hazards across the industries will bolster product penetration.

Stringent guidelines prescribed by the OSHA and ANSI, along with the initiative taken by governing authorities of several nations have imposed laws suitable for the risk-free workplace. Extensively promoting information to closely monitor worker safety and to provide protective accessories while working will augment the product adoption.

Technological advancements in the production process will provide a lucrative business outlook for industrial safety gloves manufacturers. For instance, D3O’s smart elastomer technology provides the high energy absorption capacity which provides approximately 50% impact reduction in the transmitted force in several manufacturing processes.

Critical work processes, including handling sharp edge materials such as glass, metal, or abrasion materials require hand protection to achieve grip and superior quality product will influence product demand. Increasing accidents in workplaces have led the end-use industries to adopt PPE products.

Reusable industrial safety gloves are high in demand for protection against chemical hazards while working with detrimental elements and substances. Easily achievable contamination removal from scrubbing with soap and water to keep these products safe will improve demand. Necessity to improve hand protection while handling materials and equipment in excessively hot & cold surfaces will propel the market growth.

Disadvantages such as skin irritation, swelling and redness of the hands due to its direct contact with latex proteins may limit the product demand. Latex gloves products are expected to pull back industry growth owing to their allergic skin problems among some group of workers. Fluctuating raw material prices of natural rubber, nitrile and polymers may hinder sales due to changeable production cost.

Industrial Safety Gloves Market, By Product

Mechanical products generated more than USD 2 billion revenue in 2017. Increasing demand for these products to offer a shield against cuts, repel oil, and other specialized purposes have positively influenced industrial safety gloves market growth. Processes in machinery industry, including contact with engines, material handling, and mining may cause injuries, thus requiring demand for these products.
