The report provides a detailed scenario of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the millimeter wave technology market globally. A disruption in raw material supply led to a slowdown of manufacturing activities, thus impacting the global rubber glove market negatively. According to the Malaysian Rubber Board demand for rubber gloves from the healthcare and residential sectors increased significantly. Simultaneously, the majority of government agencies have made significant investments in the manufacture of disposable medical gloves. Additionally, people are becoming more aware of the health and safety benefits of wearing hand gloves, thus accelerating market growth.
