Industrial Hand Gloves Market Trends


Strict government regulations for workforce safety is driving the market growth


Due to stringent government rules for employee safety and an increase in workplace accidents, the global market for industrial hand gloves is expanding quickly. However, the rise in automation across industries may impede the development of safety gloves. Regarding worker safety, both the US and the EU have stringent governmental laws. The American National Standard for Hand Protection (ANSHP), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Department of Labour all actively monitor worker safety measures in various industries in the US. Additionally, in Europe, the European Union Cooperation on Workplace Safety & Health and the European Union Occupational Safety and Health Administration (EU OSHA) are in charge of carrying out the necessary regulations for the safety features and employees' protective gear at construction sites.


It is anticipated that the existence of globally renowned organisations in affluent nations will persuade emerging nations to adhere to industrial safety norms. In order to safeguard worker safety at work sites, industrialists will be encouraged to implement protective measures by rules and norms set forth by OSHA, ANSHP, and EU requirements. Additionally, the shift in businesses' priorities towards accident prevention as a result of stringent international and national standards and regulations would accelerate the use of industrial safety gloves and fuel the growth of the worldwide industrial hand gloves market throughout the forecast period. Therefore, it is anticipated that over the forecast period, the influence of rigorous government requirements for workforce safety will increase from moderate to high.


During the forecast period, the global industrial gloves market is anticipated to grow as a result of an increase in worker safety awareness, an increase in the number of threats to employees, rapid changes in the food processing industry, and a rise in the demand for high dexterity gloves. The spread of epidemics like the swine flu has also greatly expanded the usage of gloves in product protection applications, which supports the expansion of the industrial gloves industry. Thus, driving the Industrial Hand Gloves market revenue.
