As per the market by material, the natural rubber segment is projected to have the major share in the disposable gloves market. This is because rubber-based products provide superior performance and protection, so it is used in several applications, such as food processing & service, medical & dental, janitorial & sanitation, pharmaceutical and automotive.

Based on the product, powder-free products are expected to dominate the disposable gloves market share. Strict regulations on the use of powdered gloves by various governments globally are projected to positively impact the growth of the powder-free gloves segment over the forecast period. In addition, powder-free products are processed with chlorination, making them less form-fitting to avoid the use of powder for wearing and removing easily.

In terms of end-use, the medical and healthcare segment captured a substantial share of the disposable gloves market. There has been advancement in the number of surgical procedures around the world. In addition, surgical gloves play a prominent role in the prevention of infections related to procedures. Thus, the management of several health conditions, such as obstructed labor, injuries, malignancy, infections, and cardiovascular disease, needs surgical care procedures which enhance the segment growth.

As in the market by geography, the North American region has held the maximum share of the disposable gloves market. This is due to the rising healthcare expenditure, and the increasing population of elderly and increasing awareness about the hospital acquired infections (HAIs) anticipated to have a positive impact on the regional market growth.

Exposure to hazardous chemicals in the working environment of industries has been one of the key factors related to health issues among workers. Skin diseases, hand cuts, rashes, amputation, and blood-borne pathogens are the common risks experienced in several industries, such as healthcare, medical, and mining. Moreover, disposable gloves have extended to agriculture, beauty care, pet care, and others.  Safety regulations in industries worldwide and the rising demand for disposable gloves in other sectors propel the global disposable gloves market.
