European Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) Latex Market size is expected to surpass USD 102 million by 2027, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.
In the view of surging COVID-19 infection rate, several health authorities, such as the WHO and European Medicines Agency, have mandated the use of personal protective equipment for medical staff as well as gloves and masks for healthcare workers such as cleaning and janitorial staff, line workers, assemblers and fabricators, and first aid. Due to the rising number of cases, there has been a huge spike in the demand for medical gloves to minimize the risk of transmission of infection. NBR latex has a penetration rate of over 70% in production of these gloves. NBR latex as disposable glove materials offers several advantages such as chemical and puncture resistance, strength, powder free, and reducing potential allergic reactions.
Increasing count of surgeries in specialized hospitals, medical centers, and clinics will subsequently enhance the market progression. Medical gloves are also used in the healthcare industry during drug formulation and testing. There are various legislation imposed on NBR latex market regarding its storage, transportation, application, and disposal. For instance, EN 455, according to this regulation, the standards are specified for the product application based on impermeability, sizing, strength, and thickness in the medical industry.
