The double-layered surgical glove market is projected to grow steadily during the forecast period.
The use of double-layered surgical gloves aids in the prevention of the spread of airborne illnesses and other infections. These gloves are used during surgery to provide a barrier between the doctor and the patient. According to research conducted by the American College of Surgeons, double gloving minimizes the danger of exposure to patient blood by up to 87% when the outer glove is pierced. As hospitals need personal protective equipment due to the growth of COVID-19 in 2020, demand for this market has increased. The increase in surgical operations, as well as favorable steps taken by governing authorities to raise awareness about hospital-acquired infections, are projected to fuel market expansion for double-layered surgical gloves. Several companies manufacture and sell double-layered surgical gloves. For instance, Mölnlycke Health Care AB (A subsidiary of Investor AB), Ansell Limited, B.
