The double-layered surgical glove market is projected to grow steadily during the forecast period.

The double-layered surgical glove market is expected to show rapid growth in the coming years as its resistance, quality, and wearability make it unique from the other single-layered surgical gloves available in the market.

Increasing geriatric population and number of injury cases. Due to increasing cases of injuries and the geriatric population, more surgeries are being performed by surgeons and doctors globally. In such cases, the probability of hazardous infections targeting the patient's wound is very high. Thus, to prevent the diseases, using double-layered gloves by doctors plays a vital role in reducing the risk factor of getting affected by hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and human immunodeficiency virus.

Double-layered surgical glove prevents needle-stick injuries. In the practising career of doctors, needle stick injuries are widespread from sharp equipment like needles, scissors, hooks, scalpels, and various bladed instruments. Wearing double-layered surgical gloves provide double protection; if the outer layer is damaged, the blood or fluids will not pass through the inner layer. According to the research, this helps in reducing the bloodstains on the skin by 65% after adding a layer of a surgical glove.

Two-colour gloves system refers to wearing double-layered surgical gloves of two different colours, white and green. It helps reduce the human error of negligence, or if the blood seeps through the outer layer, it could be easily noted in the inner layer. Therefore, it reduces the unnoticed perforations in the glove before having blood stains on the skin.

A diversified distribution network makes the business of powdered surgical gloves more scalable as the availability of this product has increased. Earlier surgical gloves were majorly used in various hospitals, medical centres, ambulatory and surgery centres. However, their usage has increased in places like government agencies, service providers, research organizations, manufacturing plants, warehouses, distributors, and suppliers.

The high cost and availability of thicker single-layered surgical gloves in the market might restrict the growth of double-layered surgical gloves. The cost of a double-layered surgical mask is relatively higher compared to options available in the market as it consists of 2 layers- the inner layer and the outer layer. Also, they are not that comfortable compared to single-layered surgical masks, which are made of thicker material; however, the bloodstains or liquid fluids cannot seep into the skin easily because of the thicker material used in them.

Key Developments

In June 2021, Ansell Ltd., a leading brand in surgical gloves, planned to open its first manufacturing plant in Russia. They aim to produce two million pairs of gloves through this factory every year. This will help them to meet the rising demand for double-layered surgical gloves after the COVID-19 pandemic came across. The company acquired a Malaysian company, Careplus, in December 2020 by taking 50% of its issued share worth $9 million. Ansell also acquired an Indian brand on 31st December 2020, Primus, which is a leading manufacturer and marketer of surgical gloves in the Indian market. Ansell made this acquisition as India is one of the fast-growing global pharmaceutical manufacturing hubs, and it helps them show their market presence in the trade.

By component, the double-layered surgical gloves market is segmented into under-layer gloves and outer-layer gloves. Double-layered surgical gloves consist of 2 layers which are usually of two different colours, green and white. The outer layer of the surgical glove is exposed to blood or other liquid fluids. It resists the maximum bloodstains from entering inside it. If the blood seeps through the outer layer, the under-layer fill blocks the bloodstains and prevents the patients and doctors from infections or diseases.

By end-user type, the double-layered surgical gloves market is segmented into hospitals, medical centres, ambulatory service centres, and others. In hospitals and medical centres, various surgeries, operations and OPDs are conducted. It is vital to use powdered surgical gloves so that the fluids or blood can be absorbed till the procedure is completed. In case of accidents or emergencies, it is imperative to stop the blood or any fluids from coming out, and there is a high chance that an open wound might catch the infection or virus from the surroundings; therefore, powdered surgical gloves are the best option available to deal with this situation. Other end users also use powdered surgical gloves in various manufacturing plants, distributors and suppliers, service providers, government agencies, and research organizations. In manufacturing plants of various FMCG products, it is essential to hygiene, and the gloves should not stick to the workers in the plant. They are the potential consumer of powdered surgical gloves. Suppliers and distributors trade in goods that might hamper the quality of the product, so they are also advised to use these gloves. Various service providers and employees working in government agencies are not allowed without wearing gloves and masks for their personal protection from the COVID-19 virus. Thus, this could be the potential market for this product. 

By geography, the powdered surgical gloves market is segmented into five continents: North America, South America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific. Due to factors such as awareness about cross-contamination, communicable diseases, and COVID-19 resulted in an increase in the powdered surgical gloves market and are expected to grow in North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific.

COVID-19 Insights

COVID-19 has resulted in a positive impact on the double-layered surgical gloves market. The market has shown rapid growth as people have started carrying gloves and masks as personal protection from coronavirus. It provides double protection; if the virus can reach the outer layer of surgical gloves, it has to cross the underlayer of surgical gloves to reach the human skin and contaminate the person. Coronavirus waves were so bad that millions of people were admitted, and to deal with that, doctors and nurses had to take extra precautions to save themselves from the virus. It led to a rise in demand for double-layered surgical gloves globally.
