Published:  Jul 2022 Report Code: KSI061612174 Pages: 115

The nitrile surgical glove market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.19% during the forecast period to reach US$734.459 million by 2027, from US$396.944 million in 2020.

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

Durability and more resistance to chemicals result in an increase in demand for nitrile surgical gloves. Nitrile surgical gloves are made from a synthetic rubber compound which is obtained by producing acrylonitrile and butadiene together. So, the material increases the capability to resist the chemicals from the other surgical gloves like latex gloves and vinyl gloves available on the market.

A diversified distribution network makes the business of nitrile 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.

Prevents latex allergy. Latex surgical gloves are made from natural tree fluids, which have greater comfortability, but it leads to minor reactions and allergies in people who have problems with natural rubber. Therefore, nitrile surgical masks are a better substitute to fight against all these skin problems and allergies.

A higher number of healthcare facilities and medical professionals around the globe resulted in more consumption of nitrile surgical gloves. Medical and healthcare centers are the major contributors to the consumption of surgical gloves as it prevents patient, doctors, and visitors from transferring any kind of hazardous and corrosive chemicals or diseases.

Nitrile surgical masks are made from chemicals that are not environmentally friendly. Chemicals like thiurams, mercaptobenzothiazole, and dithiocarbamate are used in producing nitrile surgical masks. It can result in problems like hives, skin rashes, swelling, and cracked skin.

Key Developments

In September 2021, American Nitrile, a USA-based company aiming to deliver latex-free surgical masks, launched another US-based nitrile glove manufacturing plant in Columbus, Ohio. The manufacturing plant is a 527,000-square-foot industrial facility that will create 400 new job opportunities. This will help American Nitrile to increase its production capacity to meet the demand for nitrile surgical masks.

By material, the nitrile surgical gloves market is segmented into powdered and non-powdered surgical gloves. Powdered surgical gloves are made from powder known as corn starch powder which enables the gloves to absorb more volume of fluids or chemicals. Whereas, non-powdered gloves are made from the same compound but do not contain corn starch which makes them more versatile and have wider adaptability.

By chemical accelerators, the nitrile surgical gloves market is segmented into chemical accelerators and without chemical accelerators. Chemical accelerator gloves refer to the manufacturing of gloves by the linkage of molecules in synthetic rubber and natural rubber. Non-chemical accelerator gloves do not include sulfur-based chemicals, which result in reducing skin allergies and a better comfortable fit.

By end-user type, the nitrile 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 crucial to use nitrile 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 are high chances that an open wound might catch the infection or virus from the surroundings; therefore, nitrile surgical gloves are the best option available to deal with this situation. Other end users also use nitrile 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 important to be hygienic, and the gloves should not stick to the workers in the plant, so they are the potential consumer of nitrile 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 nitrile surgical gloves market is segmented into five continents: North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific. Due to factors such as awareness about cross-contamination, communicable diseases, and COVID-19 resulted in an increase in the nitrile surgical gloves market and are expected to grow in North America, South America, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific.

COVID-19 Insights

COVID-19 has resulted in a positive impact on nitrile surgical gloves. Nitrile surgical gloves have higher resistance to chemicals which helps doctors keep themselves safe from hazardous and harmful viruses like COVID-19.
