APAC Medical Gloves Market size is set to surpass USD 8 billion by 2028, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.
The growing incidence of contagious diseases across the region will positively impact market growth. Sales of reusable products are expected to climb, as more customers are inclined toward eco-friendly PPE equipment. Since a large percentage of nitrile glove imports are from the region, local manufacturers are seeking solutions to minimize increasing labor and energy costs to boost their profits.
Despite significant improvements in the region's healthcare ecosystem in recent years, infectious illnesses continue to be a burden that requires further attention. Hepatitis B and C, HIV, HPV, and tuberculosis (TB) are some leading threats to public health in the Asia Pacific. The region has the highest rate of hepatitis B and C infections, as well as nearly three-quarters of all liver cancer fatalities worldwide. In order to prevent exposure to various contagious diseases, the regional healthcare industry is heavily investing in the procurement and distribution of medical gloves.
The latex gloves segment will reach USD 300 million by 2028. Latex gloves offer a high degree of protection against a broad range of hazards, including biohazards and abrasive hazards. The material latex also offers a greater level of strength and protection against wear and tear, when compared to vinyl gloves. Latex gloves also offer the wearer a snugger fit and a greater level of stretch, making them more comfortable for extended use, and providing superior dexterity.
China medical gloves industry size is set to exceed USD 345 million by 2028. The regional government is engaged in establishing extensive plans for healthcare reforms, which has resulted in a growing number of healthcare centers, clinics, and hospitals in the country.
The “Healthy China 2020” initiative, for instance, was launched by the National Health and Family Planning Commission to enact stricter infection control standards in the region. Some of the other factors that are contributing to the growth of the medical glove market in China include a rise in the geriatric population, a growing number of health workers, wider insurance coverage, improvements in living standards, and more stringent infection controls.
