Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global industrial safety glove market:

  • Increase in rubber production
  • Growing industrial segments
  • Occupational safety measures

Increase in rubber production

The global rubber production is rising due to increase in production from countries such as Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam. This will positively impact the industrial safety gloves market, as rubber is one of the key raw materials required for its production,” says Sarah Haque, one of the lead analysts at Technavio.

The demand for rubber gloves is primarily driven by the healthcare industry. This demand and global increase in production of rubber together is responsible for the growth of the industrial safety glove market over the forecast period.

Growing industrial segments

The growth of the various end-user segments such as manufacturing, chemicals, construction, mining, and metal fabrication has necessitated the need for industrial safety gloves to ensure the wellbeing of the workers and prevent any hazards in the workplace. The healthcare and construction sectors are the most important end-user industries, with vendors providing customized safety gloves to cater to the requirements of these industries, which contributes to the growth of the industrial safety glove market.

Occupational safety measures

Industries are obligated to ensure that the workers under their employment are safe from any occupational operation hazards. There are various standards and laws enlisted by Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which need to be adhered to by various segments such as construction, agriculture, healthcare, maritime, etc.,” says Sarah.

These industries involve considerable risk to the worker’s safety, thereby mandating the use of safety gloves such as nitrile gloves or neoprene gloves. Such initiatives to maintain impressive safety records in various end-user industries will drive the growth of the industrial safety glove market.
