Medical Gloves Market Scope
Medical gloves are examples of personal protective equipment that are used to protect the wearer and/or the patient from the spread of illness or infection during medical procedures and examinations. Moreover, Medical gloves are one part of an infection-control strategy. Medical gloves are disposable and comprise examination gloves, surgical gloves, and medical gloves for handling chemotherapy agents i.e. chemotherapy gloves). Medical gloves are made of different polymers including nitrile rubber, latex, polyvinyl chloride, and neoprene; they come unpowdered, or powdered with corn starch to lubricate the gloves, making them easier to put on the hands. These gloves are regulated by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) as Class I reserved medical devices that require a 510(k) premarket notification. FDA reviews these devices to ensure that performance criteria such as tear-resistance, leak resistance, and biocompatibility are met.
The market study is segmented by Type (Examination, Surgical and Chemotherapy), by Application (Hospitals, Clinics, Ambulatory Surgery Centers, Diagnostic Centers, Rehabilitation Centers and Others) and major geographies with country level break-up. According to AMA, the Global Medical Gloves market is expected to see growth rate of 7.5%
Malaysia’s medical glove factories, which make most of the world’s critical hand protection, are operating at half capacity just when they’re most needed, The Associated Press has learned. Health care workers snap gloves on as the first line of protection against catching COVID-19 from patients, and they’re crucial to protecting patients as well. But medical-grade glove supplies are running low globally, even as more feverish, sweating and coughing patients arrive in hospitals by the day. Malaysia is by far the world’s largest medical glove supplier, producing as many as three out of four gloves on market. The industry has a history of mistreating migrant workers who toil over hand-sized molds as they’re dipped in melted latex or rubber, hot and exhausting work. Research Analyst at AMA estimates that United States Players will contribute to the maximum growth of Global Medical Gloves market throughout the predicted period.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a final rule banning powdered medical gloves beginning on 19 January 2017. FDA proposed the ban in March, citing mounting evidence that such gloves posed serious risks to patients, including airway and wound inflammation, post-surgical adhesions and allergic reactions. "This ban is about protecting patients and health care professionals from a danger they might not even be aware of," said Jeffrey Shuren, director of the Center for Devices and Radiological Health, after the ban was proposed.
