Medical Gloves are made from various raw materials, including latex, nitrile rubber, vinyl rubber, neoprene, and others. These raw materials are available in the powdered or non-powdered form, and healthcare professionals use gloves during surgical examinations, the commission of a crime, and others.
The demand for medical gloves has increased due to the continuously rising number of surgeries, major chronic diseases, improved healthcare systems, and the essential nature of surgical gloves are some of the primary growth drivers for the market. According to our research report, Worldwide Medical Gloves Market is expected to grow with a double digit CAGR of 7.65% from 2022 to 2027.
The rising contagious diseases are increasing the demand for medical gloves worldwide. Furthermore, the healthcare industry in major developing countries is expected to witness prime growth owing to several factors, including growing investments in public and private sectors, a rising geriatric population, an increasing population, and a high influx of migrants.
However, hazardous responses induced by gloves and high price rivalry from local manufacturers are expected to boost the medical gloves market’s expansion. For example, accelerators and other chemicals used in producing latex and non-latex gloves can induce allergic responses such as irritating contact dermatitis. Conversely, introducing disposable gloves into undeveloped nations creates significant business potential.
Based on raw material, the Nitrile gloves dominate the market share during the forecast period due to rising use by healthcare professionals.

These gloves do not contain starch powder as they are associated with several allergies and side effects when used for a prolonged duration and may result in a hazardous medical situation.
Based on application type, the Global Medical Glove Market was categorized into two types: examination and surgical gloves, surgical gloves hold the larger market share.
