The COVID-19 pandemic had a profound impact on the production and sales of medical gloves. The increased need for personal protective equipment, including gloves, led to a surge in demand. However, this increased usage also raised concerns about skin damage due to excessive glove usage and environmental issues related to the disposal of medical waste.

The pandemic also resulted in a spike in the prices of medical gloves, with average selling prices (ASP) experiencing significant growth from the second quarter of 2020 to the first quarter of 2021. In the competitive landscape of medical gloves, key competitors vie for market share, and their competitive market presence varies from strong to niche or trivial.

The global market outlook for medical gloves indicates a wider acceptance of disposable medical gloves, with surgical gloves also experiencing healthy gains. Powder-free gloves have gained popularity due to safety concerns. Hospitals and clinics remain primary end-users of disposable medical gloves.

Medical gloves come in various types, including latex and non-latex gloves, with different benefits and drawbacks associated with each. The market includes examination gloves, surgical gloves, and both powdered and powder-free gloves. In the competitive landscape of medical gloves, various world brands play a significant role in the industry's development and innovation. Recent market activity indicates the dynamic nature of this market segment.

The U.S. Market is Estimated at $6.9 Billion, While China is Forecast to Grow at 11.7% CAGR
