Nitrile Gloves Market size to surpass $53 billion by 2032

  • Published Date: December 6, 2022

Nitrile Gloves Market size is estimated to exceed a valuation of USD 53 billion by 2032, as per a recent research report announced by Global Market Insights Inc.

The widespread prevalence of the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide is set to drive market expansion. The U.S. and India had the most COVID-19 infections, with over 82 million and 43 million cases, by April 2022, respectively. The disposable nature of nitrile gloves, as well as their durability, softness, and comfort, make them ideal for healthcare workers by lowering the chance of COVID-19 transmission through contact with contaminated surfaces.

Furthermore, gloves are becoming increasingly important in industrial food processing and other areas where food is handled, primarily to prevent damage to the hands and skin, but also to minimize any health hazards provided to customers by contaminated products. To that end, governments are imposing several guidelines and regulations to mandate the usage of gloves in the food & beverage industry, which is speculated to support nitrile gloves market growth.

Growing preference in the food industry to propel powder-free segment share

Nitrile gloves market is divided by type into powdered and powder-free. The powder-free segment is likely to be valued at more than USD 40 billion by the end of 2032. Non-powdered gloves are skin-friendly and may be worn for longer periods of time since they are stronger and reduce the risk of allergies due to the absence of powder, thereby increasing product demand. Furthermore, the segment expansion is projected to be fueled by the widespread use of powder-free nitrile gloves in mechanics and the food industry since they do not contain any chemicals.

Prevalent use in healthcare facilities to augment medical grade nitrile gloves demand

Nitrile gloves market valuation from the medical grade segment reached over USD 18.5 billion in 2022 and is expected to record significant growth through the projected timeline. Medical grade nitrile gloves are used in healthcare centers as they provide protection against bloodborne pathogens and bodily fluids. The mounting demand for disposable gloves in healthcare centers is set to boost product demand.

Growing use for food preparation to amplify smooth textured nitrile gloves sales

Based on texture, nitrile gloves market share from the smooth segment is poised to surpass USD 6.5 billion in revenue by 2032. Smooth textured gloves are utilized for common tasks, such as food preparation, food service, and hair care applications, which are expected to drive segment expansion. Additionally, with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, product demand from traditional users in the medical field soared significantly, and new industries began using gloves for daily tasks, such as front-line employees, transportation workers, and the general public, which is speculated to contribute to industry expansion.
