Vinyl Gloves Market Trends

  • Increasing demand for medical gloves is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for vinyl gloves is being driven by the aging population, rising healthcare awareness, and population growth, which are all contributing to the global expansion of the healthcare industry. The need for medical gloves, particularly vinyl gloves, for use in clinics, hospitals, diagnostic labs, and other healthcare institutions is rising in tandem with the expansion of healthcare services. The prevalence of infectious diseases has increased due to the continued threat posed by illnesses like COVID-19. This has made infection prevention and control strategies even more crucial. Vinyl gloves are in high demand in medical settings because they are vital for preventing the spread of infections to patients and healthcare personnel. Strict hygiene and safety rules are enforced in medical settings by governments and healthcare regulatory authorities globally. It is imperative to adhere to these laws by using medical gloves of superior quality, such as vinyl gloves, that fulfill precise performance and safety requirements.

Additionally, chemotherapy uses a lot of medical gloves to reduce occupational exposure to chemotherapy medications and its possible mutagenic, carcinogenic, and teratogenic consequences. Using personal protective equipment (PPE), particularly gloves, is a key component of preventing skin contact. It is quite important to select the right gloves. It is crucial to define broad guidelines assessing suitable materials and specifying quality criteria for the best possible protection in the cancer setting. Furthermore, as cancer incidence rises, there will likely be a greater need for chemotherapy in the future. The American Cancer Society estimates that 1.9 million new cancer cases will be detected in 2022. Because of the rising use of chemotherapy, the United States' high cancer incidence rate is anticipated to fuel market expansion in this area.

Additionally, technological advancements in manufacturing have resulted in more cost-effective and efficient vinyl glove production techniques. Higher output volumes and lower production costs are the outcome of streamlining manufacturing operations through automation, robots, and creative production approaches. New technological advancements have made it possible to create vinyl glove compositions with enhanced properties such as greater strength, flexibility, and durability. Vinyl gloves perform better due to new materials and additives, which opens up a larger range of settings and applications for them. Thus driving the Vinyl Gloves market revenue.

Vinyl Gloves Market Segment Insights

  • Vinyl Gloves Form Insights

Based on form, the Vinyl Gloves Market segmentation includes powdered and non-powdered. In 2023, the non-powdered category generated the most income. The need for non-powdered alternatives has increased as a result of allergic reactions to glove powder, especially latex glove powder. Non-powdered vinyl gloves are the best option for people with latex allergies or sensitivities because vinyl is naturally latex-free. Non-powdered vinyl gloves provide a more comfortable and fitted option than gloves with powder. Non-powdered vinyl gloves are more pleasant to wear for extended periods because the lack of powder increases tactile sensitivity and decreases the chance of glove slipping.

The powdered segment of vinyl gloves is anticipated to grow fastest during the forecast period. Vinyl gloves contain a powder that helps absorb moisture, keeping the hands dry and comfortable even after extended use. This feature is especially helpful in situations when perspiration buildup is possible, including in hot and muggy weather.
